Recently unearthed by one, JMP, phale is now commonly used and recognized as a word that signifies mental incapabilities and a rare disease: the Jumping Frenchman of Maine Disorder, a disease commonly carried in French Canadian lumberjacks. An emergency health notice from AMTA (American Medical Treatment Association) has urged anyone coming into contact with another who frequently uses this word to call their hotline : 1-800-455-AMTA.
Due to lack of Jumping Frenchman of Maine Disorder and a fear of spreading, an example of PHALE in a sentence will be posted at a later time when a quarantine can be put into effect.

Something that is beyond absolute bullshit and pisses you off. It is actually a homophone or same sounding word to FAIL. It comes from the combination of fail + hale. Hale is actually hell. As corporations become more paranoid about their employees, they utilize keyloggers and chat monitors. Certain words like fail, hell, f*ck, phuck, etc are marked as key words and trigger more logging on an employee's computer. Phale is a word to express bitterness or call something out when you encounter the common WTF scenario.
