Proofonodz

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PROO-fuh-nodz

Sentence: "You can't sleep at the circulation desk !" screamed EvilPat at the bored, bleary-eyed library assistant. " I WASN"T sleeping !" he replied with the standard look of indignation. "But there are PROOFONODZ all over your face !" replied EvilPat, in her best administrative patois. Faced with such irrefutable evidence, the chastised library assistant crafted an appropriate sign for the desk: "PLEASE WAKE ATTENDANT FOR SERVICE".....and drifted off to sleep with a clear conscience.

Etymology: PROOF+(of)+NOD+(catch some) Zs= PROOFONODZ.....Proof: the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact,something that induces certainty or establishes validity;Middle English prof, prove, alteration of preve, from Anglo-French preove, from Late Latin proba, from Latin probare to prove....."O": tastless substitute for the word "OF", usually seen in pretentious advertising:(cup o soup,bac o bits,etc)....NOD:To fall asleep,to make a quick downward motion of the head (as from drowsiness);Middle English nodden; perhaps akin to Old High German hnotōn to shake.....Z: suffix brashly used to imply pluralization (in a tacky way)derived from the slang expression "catch some Zs"-meaning to sleep. Pretty farfetched combination, eh?

Slumberumples

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: slum ber rum pulls

Sentence: On the morning after their honeymoon started, Wilma awoke with a bad case of the slumberumples...big red lines all over her face. Her groom, Will, thought it cute and endearing. Wilma ran to the bathroom and spent over an hour doing her ablutions. When she emerged, her smooth, creamy complexion had returned. She turned off the lights before she joined him in bed each evening. It took Will many years to realize that Wilma's skin had slumberumples 24/7 and during her morning routine, she was actually applying enough war paint and concealer to hide the awful truth. Yes, she had been born with what looked like a road map imbedded on the largest organ in her body...

Etymology: Slumber (be asleep)& Rumples (become wrinkled or crumpled or creased;to gather something into small wrinkles or folds)
