Weird Word of the Week

Caronoscopy: (n) the act of aggressively accelerating a motor vehicle until that vehicle’s front bumper is nearly touching the rear bumper of the vehicle in front of it.

Example sentence from Humboldt, or the Power of Positive Thinking:

“As the wailing continued, the SUV weaved in and out of traffic, accelerating erratically. Whenever a slowmoving vehicle blocked its path, the angry SUV would give the unsuspecting vehicle a caronoscopy with callous fury.”
