gimpxor

noun; compounding
a plastic “player” on the 7th floor Sid foosball table whose screw broke, and so would spin limply around the rod whenever it was spun This compound exists because one night people watched the movie Hackers, and then started applying that formula to spoken words. Therefore, instead of being labelled gimpy or gimpster or some other form, he became gimpxor.
 
Don’t play foosball – gimpxor is healing.
Etymology : Combination: gimp (a lame or crippled person) + xor (suffix pronounced “zor,” lifted from so-called hacker or “leet [1337]-speak,” in which hacker is spelled “haxor”; meaning (like -er) “the thing that X,” where X is the root)
Source : A sign on the foosball table
