You've been dunphied when someone unintentionally insults you while attempting to compliment you. Based on the character Phil Dunphy's awkward phrasing in the sitcom Modern Family.
Phil dunphied Claire when he said, "You are so beautiful. Why, the other night when you put on makeup . . ."
or:
The mom was dunphied by the following exchange:
Mom: Add that to the list. I won't make Mother of the Year this year either.
Son: Don't worry, Mom. That's not big enough to make the list.
