Pronunciation: taint fits

Sentence: The more that is stripped from any natural food, while badditives of artifical flavors, manufactured chemicals and preservatives, appetite enhancers disguised as other spices, and less costly, fatty substitutes and fillers are added, the more dangerously unhealthy it becomes.

Etymology: TAINT, FIT /// TAINT - has a double meaning. TAINT - slang/bad grammar for 'it ain't' as in 'it ain't good food.' TAINT - to contaminate, pollute, stain, spoil, infect, soil, dirty, foul, ruin, corrupt, defile, poison, blemish. FIT - has three meanings. FIT - suitable, appropriate (which it aint/'taint). FIT - convulsions (which it might cause). FIT - outburst (including an outburst of your clothes).

Pronunciation: soōdōfoōdō

Sentence: Charlie is a vegetarian at heart. The thought of killing some poor defenseless creature saddens him deeply. When he read about a study that claimed that plants emit a sound much like a scream when picked, he was left in a quandary. What could he eat? His solution? Pseudofoodo! The "O" foods! Munchos, Bunchos, Crunchos, Chunkos, Dunkos. The more processed - the farther away from anything living - the better he likes it. If only those bio-degradable packing peanuts had a little cheese or onion flavoring. If only he had the energy to go to the gymo to work off some of his flabo.

Etymology: pseudo (not genuine; sham) + food (any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink) + "O" for the O foods.
