Pronunciation: RAP-ih-DEE-pill-AAAAH-gunny (try it a few times fast)

Sentence: Mister Martindale had a very unremarkable wound- merely an irritation of the skin caused by his misguided attempts to defuse a noxolene germ bomb in his basement. He applied the largest adhesive bandage he could find and all seemed well until he asked Lulu to remove it from his forearm. Forearmed with the knowledge that RAPID removal was the preferred method of painless revelation, Lulu gripped the bandage and gritted her artificially whitened yet still appealing teeth. Mr Martindale was sweating like a piece of rancid pork, for he knew what awaited him.....................RAPIDEPILAGONY! It lasted but a nanosecond, but was like de-velcroizing the Wolfman. With tears in his eyes, Mr Martindale pulled Lulu to his chest and they gazed, stupefied, at the offending ex-bandage which looked like a cross between a steel wool pad and a giant mutant flatworm. "I'll NEVER do that again..." said Mr Martindale." I can't take the RAPIDEPILAGONY !" ....And now about that hangnail.....

Etymology: RAPID+DEPILATE+AGONY rapid:fast , quickly..... depilate:the removal of hair, wool, or bristles by chemical or mechanical methods (latin)..... agony:severe or excruciating pain

Ripillatory

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: rip ill a toree

Sentence: Gavin was such a big baby about anything medical. No wonder men didn't have the babies or the human race would have died out long ago. He fainted at the sight of blood, so Blood Bank donations were nightmares for him. The way he told it, getting a blood test was a major psychological drama for him. He'd had no choice...doctor's orders. Get that blood test or else! Gavin summoned what little courage he had and had the blood work done. He pressed the cotton ball on the spot and when it was deemed safe, the nurse put a bandage on the afflicted area. He was told in an hour he could remove the bandage. Sure enough, an hour later, he talked his wife into gently please removing the bandaid. Naturally, the revenge she felt for all his crybaby acts was strong, so she pulled it off fast and nasty. The ripillatory agony he experienced was only surpassed by the phone call from the lab, saying they'd accidentally dropped his blood vials and he would have to return in the morning for retests! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Etymology: rip (to tear or be torn violently;the act of rending or splitting something) & ill (an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)& depilatory (something used to remove hair;able to remove hair or render hairless)
