Bdelygmia (del-ig’-mi-a): Expressing hatred and abhorrence of a person, word, or deed.

You are a leaky filthy bulbous bag of snail slime (sorry snails). You leave a trail of glistening lies behind you wherever you go.

Unfortunately, there are people who follow your glistening trails.  They seem to prefer shiny slime trails over trails paved with dull truth. When faced with the assertion that there’s a difference between a disgusting excretion going nowhere and a road that actually leads to a humane destination, they yell “Boooo!” and follow the slime.
