I like the "I do not spew profanities, I enunciate them clearly like a fucking lady" mug.

Mungling ? ? ?

A guess more a combination of Munging (doing something unusual (and often off-kilter or discusting) and mungling (finagle and manipulate). If you look them up, don't forget the Urban Dictionary definitions too (as disturbing as they are).

discusting ? ? ?

Is that one throwing custard tarts like a discus?

Thanks for posting that. My favorite so far is :

"Could Of = You're A Fucking Idiot."

Unfortunately, the people that could really use this won't see it, or won't get it. Still, funny.

mungling (finagle and manipulate).


I looked mungling up on-line and in a hardcopy dictionary before I posted, but it was not listed. That is why I asked. Is it a real word or just something you created?

Dictionary.com doesn't list the -ing form, but does include the noun and verb.

Mung: verb

3. to spoil, ruin, or destroy (often followed by up).
4. Computers.

to make incremental changes to (a file, system, etc.), eventually ruining or destroying the original.

I don't actually know it from the computer references, but from hearing it from my parents and grandparents (it's an older term, originating somewhere in 1945 - 50).

I actually found an 1820 usage, though, in a zoological treatise by Henry Crow: "… is that of mungling the nostrils with a knife, after their throats have been cut."

You can tell from the usage where the more obscene forms of the word found on the Urban Dictionary come from.

The Southpark characters preferred literary coffee mugs? 'D
