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".

COMMENTS:

Oh ... a joy deride it for all it's worth! Excellent! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-27: 12:08:00

Woerrior

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: wo ree or

She had become the Lieutenant of Lettuce, the Field Marshal of Fiber, the Sargent of Salads and the Major Loser in the Campaigns. And yet, she still did not see herself as thin, so she sought out compliments for reassurance by saying self-deprecating things about her figure. Her best friend Debbie soon saw through her woe-is-me demeanor. At 280 pounds, Debbie had yet to enlist and told Wanda that she was a disgrace to her unit and she should start acting like the Loser she really was and combat her attitude!

Etymology: Woe (intense mournfulness;misery resulting from affliction) & Warrior (someone who fights in a war) & Worrier( thinks about unfortunate things that might happen)
