Feel “intexticated”?

Written By: Usree Bhattacharya on March 15, 2009 No Comment

(Relatively) new word alert: I was reading a newspaper article about teens driving while texting, when I found a word that I’d never seen before: “intexticated“. I Googled it (of course!), and found that there were some 5,010 results with the exact occurrence of that word. My next stop was the Urban Dictionary, and here’s what it told me:

1. intexticated
Word used to describe people (mostly teenagers) who drive while texting on their cellphones. The word is a play off of intoxicated, which is used to describe someone drunk.
Dude, what was THAT?!”
“Probably just some intexticated highschooler.”
“How did she get in a car accident?”
“She was intexticated.”

John was so intexticated that he didn’t see where he was going, and slammed right into his boss.
