Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: kum PASH un eet

Sentence: Mr. Hoover always thinks of those less fortunate as he enjoys his meals, remembering his mother's words that "there are children in China who would love to eat" whatever is on his plate. He is very compassioneat, sometimes "dedicating" each of his second, third, etc., helpings to some unknown starving person. He even considers eating food off the floor to be "helping Mother Earth" by "recycling" something that would otherwise go uneaten. "Waste not, want not," he always says. More like "Waste not, waist YES."

Chowbella

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: choubelə

Sentence: In a slightly misguided act of atonement, Gerry started the Double Clean Plate Club. When he was a kid his mother had always pushed him to clean his plate for the starving children of the world. Now with the thought that more is better, members gorge themselves with what Gerry calls chowbella, beautiful food. So far he and his club members have raised a lot more blood pressures than dollars. Next week*s gourmand-a-thon may change that.
