Fuzzmunnies: /fuzz muh nees/ Tight wads of paper appear on top of the clothes in the dryer. If we are lucky, those aridonesies are only fuzzyonesies, but all too often, those fuzz bunnies are more costly fuzzmunnies. Etymology: fuzz, money - paper money turned into tightwads of fuzzy balls in the dryer. Of course, fuzzmunnies is the obvious play on dust bunnies, the slang term for balls of lint and dust.
