artr Gotchup: /gächəp/ Rudy fell for a whole bottle of gotchup. He was a great fan of practical jokes. He was constantly pulling stunts on his roommate. Finally it was Billy's turn. After observing Rudy's habit of turning the catsup bottle over and giving it a good thunk before opening the cap, Billy knew what to do. He loosened the cap and sat back to see the results. Sure enough, Rudy proceeded to empty about half the bottle on his pants and new shoes with one good whack. The whole thing was made that much sweeter by the fact that Rudy insisted on buying the cheap runny catsup instead of the brand that Billy liked. His only regret was that PitterPat, his cat, was well within the spatter zone as the prank ensued. Etymology: gotcha (an instance of publicly tricking someone or exposing them to ridicule) + catsup (a spicy sauce made chiefly from tomatoes and vinegar, used as a condiment) Created by: artr.

petaj Connedement: /condiment/ Doris's mother-in-law loved to poke around in the fridge whenever she came to visit. She would pull out all the sauce and dressings bottles, giving them a firm shake and peering at the use by dates before exclaiming loudly to embarrass Doris, when she found an old one. This time, Doris had a cunning plan to thwart the old biddy. Her fridge was now full of connedements - at the first shake, her mother-in-law was sure to get a face full of thousand island dressing, fish sauce or aioli. Etymology: conned (subject to a confidence trick) + dement (to cause someone to lose their faculties) + condiment (accompaniments for your food) Created by: petaj.
