Honkstrot

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: honks trot

Sentence: When Xander Gander entered the local dance contest, Dancing With The Scars, he lived up to his reputation as the worst dancer in town. Jangled tangos, sad sambas, cheesy cha cha chas, jittery jitterbugs, wacko waltzes and dismal discos were all part of his dance card. What should have been a fabulous foxtrot turned into a horrible honkstrot. The judges cried fowl. Xander had to fly south to escape the dishonor he had brought on the dance academy, Poultry in Motion.

Etymology: Honks (sound a goose makes) & Trot (a ballroom dance in quadruple time; combines short and long and fast and slow steps fixed sequences)

Jigornaught

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: jig or not

Sentence: Mo thought he was one suave dancer. He thought he could dance to any kind of music. Sadly none of his partners did. He was thought of as a jigornaught. Someone who goes through dance partners like arsewipe. Besides his poor floormanship, he also was decidedly a migratory flocking fool.He put the rum in rhumba, the tan in tango, the pass in paso doble, the the swine in swing and the diss in disco! He was the belly in belly dancing, the square in square dancing and the con in the conga! Because he honked so much at dancing properly, his showmanship was fowl and when people took a gander at his awkward moves, they called him Mohatno Gander,Lord of the Glance!

Etymology: jig (dance a quick dance with leaping and kicking motions)& or (else)& juggernaut (a massive inexorable force that seems to crush everything in its way & naught (complete failure )
