volmenutitus - A disease characterized by confusion, irrational panic, and lawlessness. It was first identified at the University of Tennessee. Note: Volmenutitus made its debut in the spring of '06 when an aggressive VolMenus.com advertising campaign was underway. There was some confusion about the pronunciation of the word, which was mistaken to be one word rather than two, resulting in some rumor about "volmenÅ­s" and an irrational panic about its being a disease. Anyway, it was later recoined as Volmenutitus, which is recognized by the WHO.

e.g., Don' gimme yo' Volmenutitus.
