To Bunbury or to go bunburying is to have a made up excuse to get out of doing something boring.
From Oscar Wilde's 'The importance of being earnest',
where Jack creates a sick friend by the name of Bunbury to escape the boring countryside.
He said he had a dentist appointment but I reckon he's just bunburying.

The dentist? no way man! He is such a bunburyist!!!
