New word, TATANE...to describe many of the a2k who endlessly exchange insults:

Terribly Angry at all Times About Nearly Everything

I'd suppose you'd pronounce it "tat ain," rhyme with "that ain't." How to remember:

TAT = inexpensive objects of bad quality
ANE = Brit for anus

Come on guys, why does it upset you so when I pull your leg

@dalehileman,
sternutate

PRONUNCIATION:
(stuhr-NOO-tayt, -NYOO-)

MEANING:
verb intr.: To sneeze.

....a tough one because it starts with "stern" suggesting instead one's rear end

But think "stern mutate," where the mutation entails the shift from a fart to a sneeze

nictitate

PRONUNCIATION:
(NIK-ti-tayt)

MEANING:
verb intr.: To wink or blink.

Even tougher. Immediate to mind's eye: nick tit ate, suggesting Nick at Dolly's breast. But how do we connect it with the eyes: If it were Santa I guess we'd blink

@dalehileman,
stridulous

PRONUNCIATION:
(STRIJ-uh-luhs)

MEANING:
adjective: 1. Having or making a harsh grating sound. 2. Shrill or grating.

A real toughie (tho remember I'm an old guy) so I asked my Better Half, who as I've indicated is much smarter than I, and she replied "suggests strategizing," whereupon I imagine a fella sitting near a wall heater having just extinguished, in frustration scraping grill with fingernails

Yea not nearly so well coordinated as I'd like but you gotta admit, you're less likely to forget; though

C'mon guys, gimme better'n'
