The word of the day is crapulous, which provides for many twisted variations.

adjective: 1. given to or characterized by gross excess in drinking or eating. 2. suffering from or due to such excess.

As is I like the root word crap, as in those who are excessive are full of crap. Apply that to these variations: mapulous, as is an obsession with map making and categorization; papulous, as in meaningless psychobabble; rapulous, as in that crappy musical form that talks instead of sings; sapulous, as in excessive sentimentality, especially in spiritual jargon; tapulous, as in a sex addict who has to 'tap' every piece within range; vapulous; as in those who excessively suck the life out of language by trying to be 'objective.' Any others?
