XEROXPOX (zee’ roks poks) n. Skin disease of copier paper, characterized by the appearance of large black powdery blotches.
Xeroxpox is not as common as it used to be, since the advent of laser printers, but there are some instances when a copying machine might get a little retro feel to them, and they create a nasty mess on what might have been a pretty nice copy of something. Xeroxpox was not so much of an office dilemma as a school one. Were you the lucky person to get that geometry test with the big blotches where that proof was supposed to be? Lucky? you say. Sure, everyone hates doing proofs!
It seems that every school in some town has a copier that was just a little off, but teachers kept using it anyway. How many of those copiers are still in service even now, cranking out all those tests students still don’t want to take? How many of those kids might be the lucky ones that get the pages with the Xeroxpox? Pages that do have a Xeroxpox are a rare thing these days, but if you do find one, don’t hoard or cherish it like a treasure. Most likely, nobody will want it, and it’s not worth keeping anyway.
