Horibral Column

Meaning: Spine that never stands up.
Usage: Tony Blair's servility to Bush has never perplexed me. Blame it on his horibral column.
Pronunciation: Horry-bral-call-lum.
Root: Hori is the opposite of verti. Just insert this insight into vertebral column. You get a phrase that means exactly the opposite.
