Peregrump

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PAIR-uh-GRUMP

Sentence: Unable to afford the most elementary form of wheeled transport and not having the skills needed to operate even a skateboard, Fritz nurtured a lifelong grudge against scooter pilots, cyclists and anyone flaunting their customized chromium wheelchairs. Rejected by the Rebels, Fritz had become a PEREGRUMP ever since he meandered down from the hills and across the highway. Asserting his pedestrian rights, he would often step arrogantly into the flow of traffic, protected only by his hundred-meter stare and imaginary aura of invincibility. Fritz had ample time to adjust his attitude as his mangled body recovered from an all-too-close encounter with an S.U.V. Now he's in traction, staring at the hospital ceiling as he mentally composes his Speedbumpkin Manifesto and creates verbotomisms with a pencil clutched between his teeth.

Etymology: PEREGrine+gRUMP=PEREGRUMP....PEREGRINE: having a tendency to wander, sometimes obliviously;Middle French peregrin, from Medieval Latin peregrinus, from Latin, foreign.....GRUMP:a person given to complaining,an act borne of ill humor or sulkiness, sometimes malicious.

Carstruck

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: CAR struck

Sentence: What an odd guy Tom is. First he just loved cars the way that a lot of young boys did. But soon it was more like an obsession. He had become completely carstruck. He took pictures of every new model that came out and pretty much wallpapered his room with them. Then it got even odder. He started to think like he was a car. He walked up to drive-throughs and ordered food, sat in a parking space at a drive-in movie, weaved in and out of traffic making honking noises and even worse...he started showering in his driveway.

Etymology: CAR: and STARSTRUCK: exhibiting a fascination with famous people
