Edeneologist

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: ee-DEN-ee-OL-uh-jizt

Sentence: At his inauguration ceremony the new president, an ardent edeneologist, promised "...to beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks.." However, by the time the spin doctors and political correctionists took control of his speech-making and letter writing, he was not allowed not use the word "beat" : it was far too violent; furthermore, "pruning" could be misinterpreted, and use against him by his opponents, to claim government cutbacks were about to be made, and any mention of "shares", in a time of a "R" , was an absolute no-no. Sensible people agreed wholeheartedly that it was time for him to turn to the verbotomists and verbotomy for help.

Etymology: Blend of EDEN;a state of perfect happiness or bliss. & NEOLOGIST: a maker of new words.

COMMENTS:

metrohumanx Good thing they're keeping the taverns open late in D.C. - metrohumanx, 2009-01-20: 11:27:00

Drink usually causes people to spill out what troubles them to the barman ... just as people will spill out their troubles to Obama. The barman makes it all feel better with another drink. We must wait and see how Obama will make things better. Intriguing comparison! Incredible verbotomy! - silveryaspen, 2009-01-20: 13:06:00
