Devittles

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: Deh-viht-tills

Sentence: Off turned the light, and the nightly terror began for the as-yet-unexpired food. The nosferatuna slid stealthily into door hopper, where the condiments rested. A silent shadow, it sunk its celery fangs into the neck of the mayonnaise jar, gorging upon its salty fatty humors. Having turned, the zomayo lurched itself over its retaining wall and began to feast on the cauliflower, which it had mistaken in its saturated stupor for brains. A large sasquash ripped its way through the forest of broccoli and emerged upon a family of tomatoes, huddling in the corner of the produce crisper. A gout of seeded ichor sprayed across the front of the clear plastic drawer. Then, a hush fell through the refrigerator as the elder god of the cooler, Cthulhummus rose, an amorphous evil clad in finest shimmering Saran. Muffled screams issued from the magnetic seal around the door, but fell upon sleeping ears. Tonight the devittles reigned, and no food would go untainted.

Etymology: devil (or possibly deviant) + vittles

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. She opened the door, light flooded the room, warm air rushed in like a breath of spring and it knew that this was the moment to seize the day! Salamonella was born and salamonella will reign supreme! Until the frankfurtenstein develops grandiose ideas, that is.

Etymology: salami + salmonella

Repastdue

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: re past doo

Sentence: Freda knew the minute she walked into her house that they were waiting for her. Without even looking she knew that the items in her fridge were repastdue. One instant of fridge door opening left a lingering unpleasant odor and no doubt in her mind. Dawning her version of a HAZMAT suit (gloves, mask,rubber boots, etc.) she bravely scooped the now mostly liquid contents into the waiting garbage bag. Bleachy hot water and a new baking soda box and she was ready to start the whole process all over again, after she went grocery shopping...

Etymology: Repast (a meal) & Past Due (overdue on the sell-by date;expired)

Morphins

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: mawr-fin

Sentence: There's a morphin in the fridge, Judy screamed as she slammed the door shut. Though she had only gotten a quick glimpse when she moved the milk, she knew what is was. The leftover muffin she had promised to finish off last week had inched its way to the back of the ice box and taken on a life of its own with its hairy tentacles clinging to and infiltrating a number of its neighbors. It is going to take a strong stomach and about a gallon of bleach before Judy will feel safe in her kitchen again.

Etymology: morph (to be transformed) + muffin (an individual cup-shaped quick bread made with wheat flour, cornmeal, or the like, and baked in a pan )

Beastronomy

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: bee st ron oh mee

Sentence: Lefty was not only left-handed, he was left-fooded. Lefty kept food in the fridge so long it grew hair and started to move. Lefty had a real knack for beastronomy.

Etymology: Beastly and Gastonomy. Gastronomy is another name for food. Beastly has three meanings. 1) creature - like the moldy hairy beast leftovers can become. 2) brutal - which the smell is. 3) nasty, thoroughly unpleasant and objectionable.

Great cartoon James! The details are a hoot... the bite out of the drumstick, stuffed olives as eyes, and wings mutated into a two-headed monster. Funny! You've inspired me to submit more ideas for you to develop and take to the nth degree!
