Twittersplatted

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Twit-er-splat-ed

Sentence: When Sam agreed to help out at the local under 10's cricket club he didn't realise how dangerous it could be. Being one player down he stepped in to help, only to be knocked out by a speeding cricket ball. As he came round he was completely twittersplatted, all he could see were stars, flashing lights and little tweety birds. A night in hospital soon had him back on his feet, but he decided to give cricket a miss from then on.

Traumastrology

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: trouməəsträləjē

Sentence: Sidney (aka Lumpy) is working on a new field of study, traumastrology. It is the study of how a person is effected by the alignment of the stars that occur just after a blow to the head. He has worked for years to perfect just the right whack to the noggin. Too little and there are no stars, too much and the ability to gather data is lost. His theory is that a Pisces would react differently than a Taurus to the same concussive event. He may never know. He just can't seem to recruit test subjects. Friends think he has studied a bit too much on his own.

Etymology: trauma (physical injury) + astrology (the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world)

Bigbangbirds

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: beeg + baang + berdz

I must have been in a sort of time-warp chronoanomaly when this one came down the pike, because i missed it completely. Very rich trove of Verbotomisms, though! Carry on!
