Pawnfree: /Paw-n-fr-ee/ Now that the credit crunch is well under way many people will be forced to turn to buying on credit from those pawn-free credit offers. This means that you are entitled to free gifts and 0% for the first six months, then when you are completely hooked the rate goes up to 19% therefore having great difficulty keeping up the repayments. Etymology: Pawn(a person who is used by others for their own purposes) + Free(Something given for nothing. OR IS IT???) Created by: TJayzz.

Aschemataripu: /uh-sceem-uh-tuh-rihp-u/ The Blandit Brothers knew Disney litigators were on the way, but they were going to get away with it as long as they could. The BBs were sending the song to cell phones with voice-over promises that budding American Idiots could have a direct link to Simon Coward. Here was the song and lyrics played in the background: Aschemataripu! What a wonderful phrase... Aschemataripu! Ain't no passing craze... It means no worries For the rest of your days It's our problem-free philosophy Aschemataripu! Etymology: A direct rip off from "Hakuna Matata," a song from Disney's The Lion King!

Lendanger: /len DAYN jer/ Aiyo Yu keeps getting calls from PityBank (motto: "We Want to Help You Feel Forever In Our Debt") offering her the "opportunity" to roll her balances on other cards "free of charge" into the card she holds from this particular company. She also gets mailings from the same company inviting her to apply for various-sized loans that would pay off all her debts and give her "just one convenient monthly payment." These lendangering practices are helping a lot - helping PityBank, that is. She doesn't seem to realize that rolling all your outstanding debts into one payment is only helpful if you actually pay down the balance every month, and don't run up new balances. Most of her paycheck is a lendangered species at this point. Etymology: endanger + lend Created by: karenanne.
