Wrapsody

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: rap sode ee

Sentence: When Christmas morning came around, the little kids were more enamoured of the neat silver boxes that their rock computer games came in than the games themselves. It was like a Bohemium Wrapsody to see them unwrap their presents: A steel guitar, a DVD of "Wayne's World" and a CD of Queen's Greatest Hits! Instead of carols, all we heard were refrains like: "Nothing really matters, anyone can see, Nothing really matters to me"! And "Can anybody find me, someone to love..." Yes, it was a regal Christmas..."Under Pressure" and "We Are The Champions" "We Will, We Will Rock You!" "Wrapsody in Right Satin".

Etymology: rhapsody (an epic poem adapted for recitation) & wrap (enclose or enfold completely with or as if with a covering)
