Angstony

Sentence: Poor Tom Turkey. First of all, they were not out to get him a raw deal. They were out to "get him!" It was time to get a move on, before they could get a grip on him. Maybe if he could get across the creek, Tom Turkey might get ahead of them. With that in mind, he tried to make a fast get away. His pursuers decided to get down to it, and managed to get even with him. Quickly, hoping to get in on the act, one of his pursuers swung an axe. Tom did get a pain in the neck! Ordered to get if off his chest, feathers flew. Next he was forced to get the hang of it. But the ultimate pain of it all, came when poor Tom had to get cooking! Worst of all, he had no way to get back at them! Poor Tom, he suffered the angstony of it all!

Etymology: Angst and agony that make one ache for revenge!

So many great creates every day by such excellent wordsmiths, that I have trouble voting because it's hard to limit my choice for best to just two! I'm also amazed at all the new creations for the temporary re-run of old definitions! Almost proves everything is better the second time around!
