Fridgremlins

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /frij'-grem-linz/

Sentence: Brenda could hear something moving in there (in the Frigidaire) and when she peeked, and the light came on, she first heard a fierce squeal (or perhaps that was just the squeaky door), and then she was sure she saw fridgremlins scurrying behind the milk carton and the leftover casserole dish. She slammed the door shut and ran to find the number to the exterminator.

Etymology: fridge - shortening of refrigerator (from Latin, frīgus "cold") + gremlins - small, mischievous creatures (popularized by the RAF as a cause of mechanical failures; possibly from Old English, gremman "to anger, vex" + -lin of goblin) Don't get them wet!

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)

Reanimunchies

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: ree-AN-ih-mun-cheese

Sentence: Charles Dexter Ward maintained a slovenly flat down near the river. His blasphemous experiments occupied most of his time, so he enlisted the services of a cleaning woman. One bleak December night he heard a scream from the kitchen above him. Dropping his ancient leather-bound volume of spells, Charles bounded up the rotten stairway to find Heidi's partial remains steaming on the pantry tiles like a heap of microwaved bratwurst. In a flash, Charles realized the awful truth: His poorly refrigerated leftovers had become REANIMUNCHIES and attacked the hired help in a way that made an open coffin for Heidi...unthinkable. The icebox door was ajar, and a greasy streak led out to the moors like the trail of an irradiated slug. Perhaps, with a little more work, his breakthrough in supernatural food preservation WAS possible, thought Charles as he tenderly slipped Heidi's remains, and her Swiffer, into the grey waters beside the pier.

Etymology: REANIMate+mUNCHIES=REANIMUNCHIES.......REANIMATE:To give new life to,To bring to life by scientific or mystical means.....MUNCHIES:light snack foods, sometimes exhibiting motion and reproductive capabilities.

Frigidaredevills

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: frijid der dev ills

Sentence: Frida cautiously tip-toed over to her fridge. It had been quiet all day, just the odd gurgling and chugging of the motor, nothing to be afraid of, right? She cautiously opened the white steel door covered in magnets and notices. The moment the door opened, the smell hit her like a brick. They were back... the Frigidaredevils, piled high and ready to topple out the door. Liquified salad fixings, mystery meats, passe pizza slices, green fuzzy former fruits and veggies, milk that had turned biker (bad) and numerous description-defying previous edibles. In their current state not even CSI could identify them. Enough!, decided Frida of this penicilliness! She grabbed a face mask, plastic gloves and a large garbage bag and went to town clearing out the foul fridge dwellers. The bag was sealed tightly and immediately run down to the back alley for garbage pick-up. She could swear she heard noises coming from the bag and they weren't that of the Glad Man! When she had done, she cleaned and sprayed the now bare interior and placed her fresh groceries in their new temporary home. How long before these innocents would turn on her and become Frigidaredevills themselves?

Etymology: Frigidaire (Brand of refrigerator) & Dare Devils (reckless impetuous irresponsible;presumptuously daring) & Ills (resulting in suffering or adversity; an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)

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

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.

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

Etymology: concoct, octopus

Fridgeridoo

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: frij-uh-ree-DOO

Sentence: When Bob and Roxie left for a six month holiday in The Outback, nothing could prepare them for the fridgeridoo that would await them on their return. For in their hurry to get on the road, they forgot to take from their fridge all sorts of beggar's banquets, including hashmagundi, spagbol, scrambled cackleberries and, worst of all, some very ripe durians.

Etymology: Blend of reFRIDGERATOR & DOO: sh*t in its slangly, general pejorative sense. HASHMAGUNDI: "everything & anything" kind of stew. DURIAN: Foul smelling, (perhaps the worst) but delicious tasting fruit from Indonesia.

Putridish

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: pyu-tre-dish

Sentence: Not prone to scientific queries, the closest Kimberly came to having an interest in science was wanting to know exactly how long she could wait to clean out her fridge. "Just, hypothetically, let's say I have a friend," she started "with several putridishes in her refrigerator. Will those contaminate other things in her refrigerator?" Zinnia, who had minored in botany, answered "It all depends on the cultures. I would worry about growing mycotoxins." This answer terrified Kimberly.

Etymology: Putrid (rotten, foul) + Dish (plate of food) Sounds like "Petri Dish"

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

And, whenever I try a bad recipe I manage to create a putridish to save in the frige (out of guilt) and then eventually throw away - good word. - splendiction, 2010-04-21: 19:46:00

Scaryfridgidairy

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Skair - ee - frid - gid - air - ee

Sentence: Roscoe had a scaryfridgidairy dream that because he had not cleaned out his refigerator in several weeks, the dairy products had all become scary mutated beings. In the dream, he opened the door and was assaulted by moldy green cheese curd men with icicle swords. The smelly odor of curdled milk assaulted him and he turned to see menacing clots seeping out of his fridge and growing into large sour pools of white goo that were attempting to trap him and stick him to the floor. Even his beloved vanilla mocha chiller had taken form and was glaring at him in a creepy way. Last but not least, the potato salad was encrusted with some type of scaly green substance that had become “armor” and the whole container had formed The First Salad Regiment of the Refrigerator Army ready to do battle….

Etymology: Scary (frightening, intimidating, scary) + Fridge (short for refrigerator) + Also Fridgid (play on work frigid which means cold).... The word then ends with Dairy (foods that contain milk products)
