Homocreatoxic

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: ho-mo-crea-toxic

Sentence: The guide pointed out the window and announced to the group of tourists, "This is an example of a homocreatoxic planet." Sadly, it is systematically being destroyed by the dominant species who either does not recognize or isn't concerned by the signs of impending demise. This is the only planet we've seen thus far that has come to this particular form of extinction. Anthropologists say that it once was like a garden with fields, mountains, oceans and millions of diverse creatures. This is as close as we can get to the planet without risking contagion. Now, let's move on to Saturn's exquisite rings..."

Etymology: Homo: (Latin) man/mankind + Creation: (creationism)the world as it was created by a creator + Toxic: poisonous, often by chemical means

Morbitorbit

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mor bit or bit

Sentence: When Glak and Fribor entered Earth's atmosphere, they knew they were going into a morbitorbit. They had been to this planet, third from the Sun, before, but eons ago. When they saw it again, it was like viewing the rusted and decaying snagrom of a kleronbeen. A yellowy haze (not yet identified on their gastronomogeiger)hung over the sphere. Then they started giggling to themselves. "Jokes on you, Earthlings! You feel guilty, but really there is a sign near the Milky Way, pointing to Earth as a sanitary refuse and toxic dump for the Universe. All us aliens picked your planet because we could hide our trash in plain sight here! Your are not alone and the trash is out there!"

Etymology: Morbid (caused by or altered by or manifesting disease or pathology;suggesting the horror of death and decay; suggesting an unhealthy state) & Orbit (the (usually elliptical) path described by one celestial body in its revolution about another)

Flumoon

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: flu + moon

Sentence: Man has walked on the moon but he has walked on the earth for more years and has taken many more steps there. If we were to inhabit the moon, our blue moon, our paper moon, our man in the moon, our moonglow, our new moon would all become just a flumoon....we would probably manage to infect it with the same maladies with which we have infected the planet we inhabit....

Etymology: flu (short for influenza;Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease) and moon (one of the seven major bodies which move relative to the fixed stars in the night sky—the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Flu...ooo...moon, I saw you standing alone...without a dream in your heart...without a love of your own." Song of the Day, dedicated to Silveryaspen! - readerwriter, 2009-04-22: 10:47:00

Enjoyed your sentence, mweinmann - well crafted. - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:18:00

Silvery Moon is more fitting as a song for me, readerwriter. 'Sail along silvery moon, sail along lovers' lane, sail along silvery moon, to my love again!" There's another old verse about the moon I like "Oh, the moon shines east and the moon shines west, but I like the moonshine they make next door best!" - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:22:00
