Pima County (AZ) Sheriff Clarence Dupnik didn’t like Arizona’s new immigration law, calling it “political fornic(k)aboobery” in April 2010. “Fornic(k)aboobery” appears to be a neologism formed from the words “fornication” and “boob"(incompetent).

Students arrested in protest over state’s immigration legislation

PHOENIX—Protests, physical and verbal, are erupting at the Capitol and around the country to the legislative approval of a wide-reaching illegal immigration bill.
Today, students from Arizona State University were arrested after chaining themselves to the doors of the Old Capitol. That followed a rally by various religious and community leaders about 75 yards away urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto the measure which now sits on her desk.
Petitions with more than 80,000 signatures urging a veto were hand delivered to gubernatorial press aide Paul Senseman who met with them privately. Brewer was in Tucson on Tuesday.
In Tucson, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik pronounced the legislation to be “political fornicaboobery.” Dupnik said his officers already have the right—and do—stop people who they believe are in this country illegally.

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Arizona sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik calls the new immigration law racist and stupid, and that’s not all. He also calls the new law “fornickaboobery.” Now, what does that mean? Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik joins us live.
Sir, before we even get to the substance, I’m a little bit curious what that word means. It’s sort of an interesting word. What does that mean?
CLARENCE DUPNIK, SHERIFF OF PIMA COUNTY, ARIZ.: Well, I think it’s a word that has been made up to express certain feelings. It’s a very flexible word. As a matter of fact, it’s not in the dictionary.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, it’s a very colorful word, and we even looked it up and we thought we’d have a little fun with it only because we couldn’t find it, as well.

This is an amazing word. Consider its derivations:
Fornicaboob - a fornicaboober
Fornicaboober - one who practices fornicaboobery
Fornicabooberee - one who has been fornicaboobed
Fornicaboobing - the act of fornicaboobery
The possibilities are almost endless…
I think the word’s original meaning refers to an act of sexual humor or dirty joke. Refer to the book “Rationale of the Dirty Joke: An Analysis of Sexual Humor” By G. Legman.
Sherrif Dupnik used the term “political fornickaboobery” in reference to the Arizona bill. I think what he meant was that the bill is a joke and all the lawmakers who passed it are in on it.
