A portmanteau of the word "obviously" and "eventually". Its usage is similar to using "obviously" when replying to an already self-answerable question or a repeated unnecessary query supposedly meant to hasten your response. The inclusion of "eventually" (in this sense meaning that the answer to this question will eventually become apparent if one tries actually to use their noggin before asking) subtly adds a keen edge of sarcasm.

Patient: I am here because I need to see a doctor right away!
