Pseudofoodo

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: soōdōfoōdō

Sentence: Charlie is a vegetarian at heart. The thought of killing some poor defenseless creature saddens him deeply.

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.
