1) If you have mentioned the word "parse" more than once during a conversation, the conversation is said to have been "huberized".

2) Joining a conversation you have entered too late to pick up on, and then asking all parties to start over, is to generally "huberize" the entire situation.

3) When a number is mentioned as part of a sentence in any context besides mathematics, remarking that the number is (or is not) prime will instantly "huberize" the conversation.

Sentence examples:
"Man, lunch really got huberized today."
"Everybody was having a good time until sombody went and huberized things."
