Pseudofoodo

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: soōdōfoōdō

Sentence: Charlie is a vegetarian at heart. The thought of killing some poor defenseless creature saddens him deeply. When he read about a study that claimed that plants emit a sound much like a scream when picked, he was left in a quandary. What could he eat? His solution? Pseudofoodo! The "O" foods! Munchos, Bunchos, Crunchos, Chunkos, Dunkos. The more processed - the farther away from anything living - the better he likes it. If only those bio-degradable packing peanuts had a little cheese or onion flavoring. If only he had the energy to go to the gymo to work off some of his flabo.

Etymology: pseudo (not genuine; sham) + food (any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink) + "O" for the O foods.

Fastfraud

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: junkfeed

Sentence: Jim began junkfeeding as a child. As a young adult he consumed his favourite, seriously overprocessed, junkfeed in quantities disproportionate to his energy needs so that he became unhealthy. His doctors warned him to avoid the common, easy to reach, junkfeed and return to a simpler diet rich in real food. Jim learned what real food is but unfortunately couldn't find real foods around him...

Etymology: junkfeed v and n. from junk or useless stuff/what has no purpose and the verb feed, for an organism's tendency to eat for necessity and not the enjoyment of food

Sinmatation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sin ma tay shun

Sentence: John's kitchen was a chemist's nightmare. His prepared and processed foods were full of ingredients with very long, complex and foreign sounding components. His fridge and freezer were filled with modified products like near-beer, fake-a-cola, meatcheat, shamham, narydairy, stiltedcheese, designwine, oughterwater, yolkjoke, pearsatz and artifishfingers. John had traded away nutrition and healthy sustenance for convenience and sinmatation. His pantry contained replicas of foods, like synammon, appeteasers, fakemixes, bastardpasta, forgeporridge, macaphoni, wannabeans, dupesoup,inbreads, fauxjoe, cornterfeits and other appetite simulants. Yes, John, would learn later in life that trading off cooking time and a few calories and possible tooth decay for mysterious, unpronounceable carcinogenic substances was a short-sighted exchange.

Etymology: Sin (an act that is regarded by theologians as a transgression of God's will) & Synthetic (a compound made artificially by chemical reactions;not of natural origin; prepared or made artificially) & Imitation ( copying (or trying to copy) the actions of someone/something else)
