Etymology: Morsel (a small amount of solid food; a mouthfu) & Laze (be idle; exist in a changeless situation) & sounds like La Marseillaise (French National Anthem)

COMMENTS:

You get my vote, but it should be mentioned that flotsam and jetsam aren't necessarily floating debris. According to Brewer's Phrase and Fable, flotsam is debris that has washed up onshore. - Clayton, 2007-05-24: 07:21:00

Thanks Clayton - I'll have to revise my character and have him living as a beach bum, sleeping on the sand with his mouth open - Jabberwocky, 2007-05-24: 08:48:00
