Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Over-sents-ative

Sentence: Horacio often thought he could detect odors on things that no one else could. Objects which most people thought had no odor, he felt most compelled to pick up and smell, just to be sure.

Inhailstorm

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: in hayle storm

Sentence: Being with Eddie was like always being in an inhailstorm. This was because he had to compulsively sniff at each and everything, just to ensure it had not gone off. One could easily testify that the only thing that had ever "gone off" was Eddie himself. Once a gifted wine "nose" and then a gifted perfume "nose", Eddie had smelltered himself to the situation where people only called upon him if their carbon monoxide detectors failed or they suspected a gas leak. Yes, Eddie had stuck his nose in one too many places and now was facing a de-scent into madness!

Etymology: hail (precipitate as small ice particles;enthusiastic greeting ) & inhale (to breathe in) & hailstorm (a storm during which hail falls)

Olfactofreak

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: ohl-FAC-toe-freek (olfactofreaky,olfactofreakish)

Sentence: Eric was seldom Idle.Whenever someone suspected food of having spoiled, they brought it to Eric, who was more than happy to evaluate it's state of advanced decay. Eric was an OLFACTOFREAK of the first order, and he constantly honed his imaginary skills by sniffing everything he could. Being overly fond of "new car smell", he was forcibly ejected from the local Alfa Romeo dealership several times. When Eric and Heidi gassed up their car, Eric OLFACTOFREAKED out over the smell of fresh petrol, and had to be carted off in a state of toxic bliss. His fixation enabled him to detect the smell of a hot tar roof from a mile away, which reminded him of that summer he spent at the Jersey shore. Eric's reputation as an aromajunkie spread far and wide. The Department of Homieland Insecurity even hired him to sniff around cargo containers, searching vainly for contraband. The Government's bloodhound was retired because of nasal polyps, which compromised the dog's sniffability and America's security. When he detected a boatload of tainted Chinese suppositories, Eric the OLFACTOFREAK was idleized for having saved the day once again.

Etymology: OLFACTOry+FREAK=OLFACTOFREAK...........OLFCTORY:of or relating to the sense of smell;olfactorius, from olfacere to smell, from olēre to smell + facere to do.....FREAK:an ardent enthusiast b: a person who is obsessed with something (origin unknown)
