Lackcelerate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lak sel er ayt

Sentence: When Sydney drove his old sports car out and about, he drove very slowly even in the fast lane, behind a big cow. His failure to lackcelerate caused many passersby to give him the finger and hurl abuse at him. Sydney did not care...he was nearly deaf, wore thick glasses due to his myopia and put-putted his way along. One day the local constabulary pulled him over for obstructing the flow of traffic. The officer was confused why Sydney was always following a cow. Sydney pointed out that the cow was towing him because it saved him a fortune on gas!

Etymology: Lack (to be without) & Accelerate (to move faster)

A friend of mine always said, "Beware of old men in hats driving Buicks." I remember driving up the NJ Turnpike at 75MPH and pushing 80 in the right lane and being flashed by motorists thinking I was going too slow!
