This one’s been discussed, with several examples, over at Language Log
( http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=4402 ), but not so much here.
I saw this example on the Style Invitational Devotees Facebook page:
“We now have 85 members of the House who have shunned their noses at us,” said Dustin Stockton, a Texas- and Nevada-based operative and the chief strategist of The Tea Party.net.
Shun your nose and mouth-breathe.
