Corabbitation

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: ko-rab-bi-TEY-shun

Sentence: I heard scratching; was that Cotton-tail - had he returned?" Quickly, I leapt out of bed, and opened the bedroom door. Sweeping my furry little friend up in my arms, I said, "Where have you been?" In a nanosecond, I knew the answer, six little bunnies were running over my toes. Cotton-tail had brought his family home. Jumping up onto my bed, they all snuggled around me: it was cozy: it was contentment: it was corabbitation. Suddenly, and it seemed like only seconds later, a jagged elbow buried itself into my ribs. Roxie rasped, "Wake up; dreaming again; I suppose, what about this time?" "Rabbits," I said. "More like Playboy Bunnies," she responded.

Etymology: Rabbit & Co-habitation.

Xenocturnalia

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ze-noc-tur-na-li-a/

Sentence: Sleeping on the same bed with Clarisse Starling is one thing, but this was above and beyond the XENOCTURNALIA that Daizy the Sheep signed up for when it joined agent Starling to be a true and faithful sidekick. As Hannibal Lecter smiled and whispered his customary: “Good evening Clarisse,” the poor lamb went silent and quietly left the bedroom.

Etymology: XENO - prefix that usually refers to an across-species process or act (e.g. XENOtransplantation; XENOgraft); NOCTURNAL - night-related, usually sleep related; -ALIA - a suffix reserved for a ritual of a sexually suggestive nature (e.g. SaturnALIA)

Codepetent

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: co dee PET ent

Sentence: You know how 1-year-olds move around a lot when they sleep and wind up in funny and cute positions? And how if you sleep with them, you sometimes end up with a foot or a butt in your face? Well, it isn't so cute when they are 8 and still in your bed, but taking up a lot more room, and you get kicked or punched all the time. So you have to feel bad for Indy Cysive, whose 8-year-old happened to be a chimpanzee who still insisted on sleeping in Indy's bed every night. Indy had even bought a special bed just for Harry the chimp, but every night when she tried to put Harry in it, he whimpered and wrapped his arms around her. Indy secretly missed those chimp baby years when he had needed her so much, and she was too much of a codepetent to say no to Harry. So the expensive pet bed remained unused. And almost every morning, Indy woke to find a fuzzy arm draped over her face. At least Harry was willing to keep his diapers on, since he did weigh 150 pounds by then.

Etymology: codependent + pet

----------------------------

ooo ooh, aah aah...Indy (love her name) has my chimpathy! - Nosila, 2010-05-21: 17:57:00
