Americanidolater

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: am erik an eye doll a ter

Sentence: It starts with auditions in several cities each season. The best and the worst are shown and voted through by a panel of esteemed judges to the next tier of competition. Eventually everyone in North America gets hooked and calls to vote for their favorites. Hitherto unknowns are all of a sudden the talk around water coolers each morning and each member of the general public will become an americanidolater. Millions of votes are cast each week until a winner is chosen. Sadly, not that many people vote in elections. Of course if the people running for office were as honest as Simon or as talented as the unknowns on stage, maybe election participation would improve greatly...

Etymology: American Idol (Pop Culture tv series where nobody's can audition their sining talents for judges and win big money & recording contracts and become overnight sensations) & Idolater (a devoted worshipper and admirer of idols)

Cultasy

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: cul/tas/ee

Sentence: See 'Comments' below - My cultasy requires that I chant each morning and it distracted me and I put my sentence in the 'Comments' box. Please forgive me and may all the earthbound X-rays find your path today and lead you to freedom, purity and adventure.

Etymology: cult + fantasy

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Jimmy and Jenny met at a 'X-Men' conference in New York last year. What they love most about their cultasy are the costumes and the chants recited three times a day in hopes that they will come in contact natural earth bound x-rays which will transform them like their heros. - Stevenson0, 2007-06-19: 07:56:00

My cultasy would be travelling in the Tardis. It would be great for holidays and shopping and you'd never have to worry about parking - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:26:00

Or making phone calls. - Clayton, 2007-06-19: 12:30:00

You _could_ take the Tardis shopping, though the driver would probably drop you off a few decades either too early or too late. Depending on what you want to buy, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. Showing up 10 years late to buy a Wii: good. Showing up 10 years late to buy a limited-edition Pokemon card: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a personal computer: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a passenger pigeon: good. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:57:00

You'd also probably have to save the lives, livelihoods, and/or rights of anyone who didn't die immediately upon your arrival, but that's a small price to pay, isn't it? - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:58:00

I like the "bonus word" you gave us - buycon. I'm assuming that's a capitalist icon? - bigdog, 2007-06-19: 16:08:00

Let's hear one for the borgs. - texmom, 2007-06-19: 17:29:00

Not sure that buycon is original, but it popped into my mind when I was thinking about all those toys I felt I had to buy for my son years ago. Yep, it's a capitalist icon. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-19: 18:00:00
