More Words We Need

First identified by Harry Haddock.

Bansturbation.

From the context, we all know what it means, but can we arrive at a proper dictionary definition?

The bureaucratic relief found in restricting freedom?

I'm sure that some of you can do better than that.

(BTW, strongly recommend adding Mr. Haddock and The Shopkeeper to your RSS feeds.)

The act of banning something = Ban

One who's job it is to ban things = Banster

One who takes pleasure in banning something = Banstard

One who gets over excited about banning something = Bansturbater

The act of getting excited about banning something = Bansturbating

Being on the receiving end of something which is banned = Bansturbated

Think I will add these to my spell checker now...
