Konglish Word of the Week

This weeks Konglish word of the week is "abusement". It sounds like a mixture of maltreatment or improper use in a funny manner but is meant to be an adjective along the lines of abuse. Miky showed me a video of some parents playing a trick on their kids where they were playing a harmless computer game and then a horrible picture filled the screen. One kid was most upset by this and Miky thought it was a case of child abusement.

There were some coffee-ads like that also. Dreamy scenery, light music and suddenly WHAM! some horrible face in the pic. Actually rather counterproductive - no more caffeine needed!
