Exouthenismos (ex-ou-then-is’-mos): An expression of contempt.

“There is a time to hate” and I hate you—not just now, but for as long as I live and beyond. People like you deserve to be worked over with a set of electric hedge clippers, giving your face a buzz-cut, and then, putting your privates on a tree stump and having at them with a dull hatchet. I know this is disgusting, and maybe psycho, but you’ve pushed me here with your own pathological behavior: taping an M-80 on my pet turtle’s back, lighting it, blowing Tuffy into fragments of meat and shell, and laughing and bragging about your sicko behavior to the dumpster dwellers you call friends, puts you in league with the criminally insane.

I am going to have you arrested, tried, convicted and put in prison. Wait until the other inmates find out what you did to get there. They will find ways to “enhance” your sentence.

I have managed to find enough of Tuffy in the parking lot to bury in this cigar box. I’ve taped his photo to the lid and painted a little pond around it. I am working on Tuffy’s eulogy. It is hard to keep my rage out of it—you have ruined something special and taken an innocent creature’s life. You are disgusting. You are sick. You will go to Hell when you die. If I am alive, I will come to your burial and spit on your grave, or, find a way to scatter your ashes in a porta-potty.

May eternity treat you with horror and pain.
