you: hey how's it going
my brain: eternally upset at xkcd 1467, in which beret guy says that the act of sending naked pics over fax is called "faxting," which is an obvious play on "sexting" but makes no etymological sense. it should be called sexing or saxing instead
@HTHR when a witch curses you via scanned telecommunication is it called getting fexxed?
@HTHR yeah, but 'sexing' and 'saxing' are both ambiguous
seems like you could use the full word 'facsimile'.
@HTHR beret guy seems to be unclear on how things work in general (see 1293 for another example), so he might be canonically giving an incorrect name for fexing
@HTHR I don't think eytmological sense is the word you're looking for here, the etymology is very clear—it's derived by analogy to "sexting".
it's possible you just mean it doesn't make sense in general, but in that case I have some bad news for you about English
