həmp-ɪŋ-e-dɛsk

Idiom/Verb (Informal)

1. Being so consumed with ones job (and/or studies) that one actually begins to develop romantic (and/or sexual) relations with their furniture.

*The phrase originated in the early 21st century during which time a friend was defending his recently reclusive behaviors to another friend. While describing and defending these behaviors, the defense articulated that he had been studying for his MCAT and consequently "humping his desk".
*The phrase should be used in similar context during which the "humper" wishes to place extreme emphasis on his level of work.

*This phrase is often followed by adverbs such as: relentlessly, dutifully, professionally, consistently, and furiously (less frequent).

*The phrase should never be followed my adverbs such as: cheerfully, enthusiastically, or happily. If this is the case, said "humper" is stating a counterintuitive argument and is most likely being untruthful in his claims.
*Desk Humping is never fun
