Obstetrickall

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ob stet rik all

Sentence: Wearing a flowing Kaftan coupled with her recent surgery, Jim's beer-addled brain thought his boss Fred's wife Kathy looked very pregnant. When he commented on their new addition, by saying all deliveries were to go to the rear of the building, he realized that it was an obstetrickall illusion. After she slapped him, at the Labor Day barbeque, he realized he was a victim of suggestation. Soon-to-be unemployed dunce that he was, he further joked in his Miss Prissy accent, "I don't know nothin' about babyin', Miss Scarlett!" This started a fight in which he became embryoled in a breech of the law. His confinement in the county jail should end soon, in about 9 months.

Etymology: obstetrics (dealing with childbirth and motherhood) & trick (deceive somebody ) & all (everyone)
