Spinfatuation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: spin fat you eh shun

Sentence: Carl loved his car, in fact you could say he had a bad case of spinfatuation. His favourite book and movie had been Stephen King's "Christine", so when he first took her out for a spin (or as he called it, on their first date), he named her Christine. His spinfatuation was automatic and he spent many hours learning auto repair, because he did not want all those grease monkeys down at the local garage touching her sleek chassis, never mind looking under her hood. His time alone with her in the garage soon became a fixation. His mother was worried, but found it hard to torque to him about it. She tried to steer him towards other activities (or even appliances), but he refused to shift and always yelled back at her, until she was exhausted. Her concerns were further fueled by his talking about marrying Christine. She argued that this love was not the wheel thing and their age differential was too great. His mother almost had a hemi one day when she discovered that Carl had left a note saying that he and Christine had eloped. The next day, Carl walked home, leaking eye fluids, without the lovely Christine. His mother saw that he was ready to blow a gasket and asked him what happened. Carl broke down and said "I have made a complete axle of myself on my wedding night!" He told her that he had found out when she had made a transmission, that Christine had had some "work" done on her before they met, she was really a convertible... she used to be known as Christopher! She became the little engine that couldn't. Carl lost all his inhibitors and committed battery first and then vehicular homicide. He had come home to look for his cables...the jumpers. We knew it would all end in gears...Oh, the heart brake!

Etymology: spin (a drive in a car;twist and turn so as to give an intended interpretation;or make up a story) & infatuation (foolish and usually extravagant passion or love or admiration)

Inanimorous

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: in-ANN-ah-morr-us

Sentence: The vibration of the unbalanced washer shook the ceiling pot rack, the pans on it sounding a cacophony of distant gongs. Roger sighed, and picked up the evening paper, turning on the dim orange sodium light of the old table lamp next to him. Shortly after the shaking stopped, he heard feet hit the floor. Marjorie emerged from the stairs looking flushed, carrying an empty hamper. "You know," Roger started slowly, not looking up from the paper, "we could get a new machine since that one is so far out of balance?" Her face fell. "Oh, we don't need to spend that kind of money right now. Besides, this one does a fabulous job with my delicates." She paled when she realized her innuendo, and the paper folded down to reveal a stone-faced Roger, locking her in a stare. His steeled eyes revealed his knowledge of her inanimorus affair with the Maytag 7800 front loader. The weight of 34 years of marriage dimmed the light in the already dark wood-paneled room. Scattered cords of light dodged around the edges of the curtains, revealing how dusty the room was. She tracked a small piece of lint suspended in a ray between them as it drifted on thermals and drafts, in and out of the beam of light, to avoid his gaze. Eyes refocused as Roger slowly lifted his paper back to reading level. Marjorie saw the harsh outline of his eyes soften and the glint of a tear just before they were once again replaced with headlines proclaiming the latest tournament Cinderella. She filled and put the kettle on the stove, and left the room.

Etymology: inanimate + amorous

Have these always been called "verboticisms?"

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-03-28: 06:00:00
Yes that's the word we use to describe our invented words. Of course you can also use "neologism". And I think we should create a subcategory for invented words with sexual undertones like your winning word today. It would be "verberoticisms". ~ James
