Email: Epiphany's epitome [EH]

Epiphany means a showing-forth or revelation as in the Lord's coming to Earth. So when someone "has an epiphany" it's quite an eye-opener (and generally a good thing unless it's a rude awakening and used in the ironic sense). "Epiphanized" sounds like he used it in a very stretched sense -- sort of like how I would do so to be intentionally sabotagerical (see?) of the English language, in spoof of someone who didn't know better. I know it's obnoxious and that's my point. Anyway "epiphanized" in this negative context sounds like “euthanized” to me, or definitely a Bushism! ;-}
