"I hope Luna always commentates from now on. . . . Loser's Lurgy ..."
-- Ron Weasley (HBP19)

Commentary

Etymology

According to the Oxford Dictionary, a lurgy is an "unspecified or indeterminate illness". The term is used humorously and originated from the "British radio series The Goon Show and probably invented by its writers, though possibly from an English dialect term."

Notes

A nice alliteration.
