The self stuffed with the self..
Quote du zhoor...
"The word boredom did not enter the language until the eighteenth century. No one knows its etymology. One guess is that bore may derive from the French verb bourrer, to stuff [...] Boredom is the self being stuffed with itself."
-- Walker Percy
Found at an interesting blog, Bad Catholic
