-xor

; clipping
A suffix that is jokingly attached to a word in order to strengthen its meaning. The rise of computer and internet slang has come and gone, and it leaves behind remnants that are understood yet not taken seriously by many. Young peoples’ language picked up a few words from the ‘hacker’ subset, and uses a few terms for their humorous value. ‘-xor’ is among these terms; it is simply the second syllable in the word ‘haxor,’ a word that implied good computer skills. This clipping can be affixed to any word to jokingly increase its status, similar to ‘uber-.’ An example would be ‘gimpxor,’ pronounced gimp-zor, which is how a few of my friends referred to another temporarily disabled friend when he rode his electric scooter, ironically giving him a mobility edge over the rest of us.
 
Hey, don't touch gimpxor. He's healing.
Etymology : -xor. Clipping from computer speak 'h4x0|2' (or variation) pronounced 'haxor.'
