Joyderide

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: joi-DI-rahyd.

Sentence: The strange sounds that echoed in my head, obviously were even funnier on my lips, for my French speaking classmates laughed till they cried. And every day my pronunciation sounded worse, and there was nothing I could do to improve it. Then one day I said to myself, Bob you’re on a winner here; milk it, be the butt of their jokes, slip in a few Malay words and they will love you even more. It was fantastic I was more popular than ever before; the hurt had gone; the “joie de jeers” were now sweet music to my ears; my emotional tank was full again, and it was seat-belts on for the joyderide of my life.

Etymology: Blend of joy, joyride, & deride. Perhaps in line with the french flavour of my sentence, the verbotomy should be, "joie de ride".

Sacrificialwhine

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /sak-ruh-fish-ul-wiyn/

Sentence: Delilah was a tall, blond, blue-eyed beauty, and secretly, Christina couldn't stand her. It wasn't really Delilah's attractiveness that she hated ― it was more because she seemed to take it all for granted. She would complain about any slight percieved imperfection to anyone kind enough to listen, and sacrificialwhine on and on about things like 'having a bad-hair-day' and that she was going to have to cancel her date because of it. Christina would have just been glad to have a date at all... She just sighed to herself and pretended to nod sympathetically as Delilah now went on about how she couldn't find a bra to properly show off her considerable cleavage with her new dress.

Etymology: blend of, Sacrificial wine - wine used in various religions as a holy offering (from Latin, sacrificium "sacred rite" & vinum "of the vine") + Whine - (Old English, hwinan "to whistle through the air"; like the sound of many arrows)
