Gluttoneed

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: glut ton need

Sentence: Stanley ate for others. He had a definite gluttoneed. Instead of donating what he paid for all this food (like 8 delivered pizzas tonight alone) to an organization, he felt the gluttoneed to eat for others and show he could do his part when the Pizza Place donated a dollar for every pizza sold to Overeaters Anonymous. Yes, Mr. Big-Hearted Donor, was contemplating ordering fried chicken tomorrow night to support Chicken Breast Cancer, Restless Chicken Leg Syndrome and Buffalo Wings Transplants (who wants to see a Buffalo without wings?). On the weekend he planned to order fifteen Hot Dogs to donate money to Dogters Without Border Collies; Find the Cur and Seeing-Eye Hot Dogs. Yes, Stanley was an angel, who was fast out-growing his halo!

Etymology: Gluttony ( eating to excess (personified as one of the deadly sins);habitual eating to excess) & Need (have need of; require as useful, just, or proper;the reason for the action; that which gives purpose and direction to behavior)

Expiatetion

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: ex-pi-ate-shun

Sentence: Expiatetion is the prime factor that led to an entire generation of fat people. In the 50's, children grew up believing that if they ate all their food it would somehow make up for the suffering of starving kids in Europe who "would be happy to see that food". In the words of Alan Sherman, "They kept starving, and I got fat!"

Etymology: expiation: a means of atonement for wrongdoings or paying for a wrong + ate: past tense of eat Alan Sherman was a 1960s predecessor to Weird Al Yanckovic who made several records which changed the lyrics of songs. His most well known hit was "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah." He died in 1973 at the age of 48 with diabetis and emphysema due largely to his weight. In the song, "Why I got Fat" he blamed his mother for making him clean his plate to help the starving children in Europe - something every kid growing up in the 50's and 60's heard from their mothers.

Scrappetite

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: scrap/e/tite

Sentence: Louis wondered how he was ever going to be in good enough shape to join the guys in their first "Bros to the Finishline Marathon." His mother first painted that picture of starving children in Africa who would do anything to eat his brussel sprouts for breakfast, lunch AND dinner when he was about three years old. Since then, he has had a very unhealthy scrappetite and cannot leave a single crumb on his plate. While his buddies cross the finish line, he will be on the sidelines tossing them cups of water, proud of the fact that it is due to his "inner humanitarian" that he can't join them on this one.

Etymology: Scrap + Appetite
