Vehikele

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: vēhīkəl

Sentence: G.P. loves to hike, but not like most people. He likes to hike on highways. He is a regular no-motor vehikele. He feels he has as much right to be there as the next guy, maybe more.

They should also put him at the front of the "I don't learn too quick" line.

Etymology: vehicle (a thing used for transporting people or goods, esp. on land, such as a car, truck, or cart) + hike (a long walk, esp. in the country or wilderness)
