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.

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

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.
