Ptomainaters

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: to mayn ay ters

Sentence: Sarah entered her kitchen with trepidation. He was back, just like he promised the last time he had visited and terrorized her. She knew he was back because of the putrid odor. This time, he wasn't alone, he had brought reinforcements who were as evil as he. The sour milk, that very old potato salad, green meat and other items that would need a CSI Trace Analysis to determine their origin were pillaging her fridge. The minute her fridge door opened, it's vile rotting scent permeated the whole house. A mere disinfectant bath was not going to be enough to rid her this time of the Ptomainaters. She was going to have to get an Electroluxorcism or have an Amanadectomy to get the vile appliance out of her home. As the stainless steel coffin for the Ptomainaters was removed, Sarah heard that voice with the strange Austrian accent saying again, "Hasta La Vista, Baby...I'll be back!"

Etymology: Ptomaine (serious food poisoning due to bacterial putrefacation) & Terminators (someone who exterminates) & Ate (eaten)

Freneticfutation

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: rhymes with genetic mutation

Sentence: Barb was so tired of cooking after the big feast, that she started dining out every night. She would bring leftovers home and put them in the fridge quickly so as not to have to see the developing compost pile that awaited her. When the smell of the leftover Chinese food, mingled with the rancid lunchmeat and the liquified cucumber finally escaped the confines of the fridge, she tied a scarf around her face with some dryer sheets tucked in the fold, donned elbow length gloves and braced her self for the freneticfutation that almost convinced her to abandon her home.

Etymology: Based on genetic mutation, but changed to frenetic to imply a crazy pace and futation to get the idea of food in there.

COMMENTS:

metrohumanx The vivid images this invokes makes it hard to keep this one down. People often ignore the "liquified cucumber"...my least favorite discard. Great story, Nu! - metrohumanx, 2008-12-01: 14:07:00

Salamonella

Created by: bananabender

Pronunciation: suh-LAHM-mun-el-uh

Sentence: It was hiding behind the egg carton festering technicolours, foul odours, and a plan of escape. "I'm not supposed to be in here" it thought, "I'm a hot salami and it's way too cold in here for me." It waited... and waited... and festered... and festered.

Until the frankfurtenstein develops grandiose ideas, that is.
