Comemotions

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: come motions

Sentence: It wasn't a low-rider, but a loud-rider tunebuggy, Teenie was stearing down the streets. The amplifliers sent everything on the dash flying. Only his seat belt kept the constant sonic booms from sending Teenie flying. He rolled along with woofears and tweetears blaring, a deaf-defying menace loose on the streets. I'm so sick of the these comemotions all over the streets. I've written my state representatives to introduce a law to make all these comemotions disalloud.

Etymology: COME, COMMOTIONS. Come - as in approach, which is what vehicles do as they move down the streets. Commotion - a ruckus: a scene of noisy confusion or activity, which is what such vehicles with deafening sound systems are. - - - Might as well throw in MOTIONS - for all the movements involved, including those to try to get away from these comemotions!
