Dividiophagiatric

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: dih-VID-ee-oh-PHAGE-ee-AT-rick

Sentence: Oliver would be the first to admit he had a few caloric intake issues and a hardy appetite, but his pal Laurel had taken a quantum leap into the bizarre world of MICROINGESTION. She seemed to believe that smaller portions, taken more frequently but in greater quantity would enable her to reduce her vast waistband. Her tragically DIVIDIOPHAGIATRIC behavior extended to the belief that ingesting a hundred jello shots was less intoxicating than a small tumbler of Wolfschitt Vodka. Laurel's morning bowl of steam was usually followed by nine hundred Cheerios she had diligently laid out the night before. For dessert, she limited herself to one AEROGELATO and a fistful of mini-M&Ms...Fortunately, Ollie took her to the mental hospial, where she spends her days in the DIVIOPHAGIATRIC ward, counting Sen-Sens and swapping Mini-Chicklets with the patients. Laurel managed to lessen her gross tonnage, but it was probably the hospital food - NOT the pretzel stix that did it.

Etymology: DIVide+IDIO+PHAGE+iatric= DIVIDIOPHAGIATRIC___DIVIDE:to reduce into discrete yummy portions___ -IDIO:suffix, Greek, from idios — : one's own : personal : separate : distinct___PHAGE: Greek -phagos one that eats, from -phagos ___-IATRIC: of or relating to (such) medical treatment or healing

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-06-20: 01:30:00
Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Rollback. It may be science fiction, but when Rob gets rolling you can't help but laugh at the details of our daily lives -- like eating pizza. Rollback's pizza moment starts off with, "She was used to the way her husband ate pizza, but couldn't actually say she liked it", and then jumps right into the gory details. Thanks Rob! ~ James
