Shrimpatico

Top verboticism of the day created by OZZIEBOB

DEFINITION: n. A person who insists that lower life forms (fish, clams, cephalopods, reptiles, or insects) can be affectionate pets and excellent watchdogs. v. To talk to an animal who can't possibly understand a single word you're saying.

Pronunciation: SHrim-PAH-ti-koh

Sentence: "Oh, do you see what shrimps see?" asked Bob, not even battering an eyelid. "To confess the truth, Bob, it's just I don't think that's as easy as you say," said Roxy. " I'll try to do so, to please you; but I rather think Crusty, brought up in the sea, sees the world quite differently; indeed, through different eyes." Have you got a pencil and paper!" exclaimed Bob. "Just write him a note in Shrimperanto and he will understand immediately." Bob watched eagerly, convinced that he had developed some special shrimpatico, with even the tiniest of crustaceans.

Etymology: Blend of SHRIMP: Any of various small, chiefly marine decapod crustaceans of the suborder Natantia. In a loose sense, any small crustacean & SIMPATICO: congenial or like-minded; sharing similar temperaments and, therefore, able to get along well together.
