(linguistic footnote: -aster is a pejorative prefix from the Latin indicating that someone is bad at the skill indicated by the noun it attaches to - the classic example in our mind is the grammaticaster, who berates others for failing to adhere to made-up rules of propriety in a language, like the no-split-infinitives thing in English. - 🐲)
@packbat the disaster, like myself?
literal-minded etymology answer
@SoniEx2 etymology seems to be unrelated, actually! the -aster in disaster comes from the word for star, astrum, while the -aster here is a suffix about pettiness or incompleteness.
