Sentence: Bessie should have known that some foods are just plain dangerous to eat. She always got ice cream headaches and burned tongue from hot liquids and canker sores from excessive candies. Now she could add Pringletingle to her list. Eating the sharp pieces cut through her palate and the abundant salt on them was like,well, rubbing salt on a wound. And since she could not eat just one, the entire tube of them really, really hurt her mouth. "These packages really ought to have health warnings on them like cigarette cartons", she thought to herself. "Mind you", she thought as she lit a menthol cigarette to cool off her sore mouth, "who reads those anyway"??

Pronunciation: pring ell ayte

Sentence: As an ER Resident, Dr. Pepper saw it all too often. Another patient who scoffed one too many salty sharp potato chip...someone who could pringleate herself in the blink of an eye. Sure, it started off innocently enough, entranced in a movie on the tv, jamming them into her mouth until she had Idahoed the roof of her mouth. Wine, beer and pop only caused greater burning and no relief. Only when the pain was unbearable had she headed for St. Dorito's Hospital to get first aid. Dr. Pepper swabbed her mouth with salve and sent her home. But he knew she would be back again sometime soon because they never learned. No, when the chips were down, she'd be back!

Etymology: Pringle (potato chip brand sold in cardboard tubes) & Lacerate (cut or tear irregularly;irregularly slashed and jagged as if torn)
