Utencell

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: yu ten sell

Sentence: Gary was the gadget guy. If it hadn't been already, he would invent it. Like his microwave TV,his food-word processor, his short-wave electric frypan, his blogblender, his curling-clothes iron and his toaster stereo. His latest multiappliance was a cell phone which could plan a menu, phone in a grocery delivery order, provide recipes and signal when to do what and for how long. He called it his Utencell. His girlfriend, Myra, wondered how long it would be before all these devices plotted to get rid of Gary, because they really did not need him, except to replace their batteries and plug them in. Yes, the Gadgetry Revolutionaries, the Widget Fondas, the Contraptionistas and the Political Apparatus were building up steam to end the Gizmo Gitmo in Gary's Kitchen!

Etymology: Utensil (an implement for practical use (especially in a household) & Cell (cellular telephone;a hand-held mobile radiotelephone for use in an area divided into small sections (cells), each with its own short-range transmitter/receiver)

In between slicing and dicing, you can call friends, text people and take photos of the chopped thingies on top of your meals. Vince would do fine until he asked the potential client if they wanted to see his crushed nuts.
