Saladsinner

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: sal-ed-sin-er

Sentence: Mary was an unrepentent salad sinner. Right before a date or any other sort of meal where she was eating out and in the company of others, she would raid the nearest refrigerator and gorge herself on whatever she could find. This made her the most reviled person in the office, and cost her quite a few second dates, as she would ask to stop by her date's apartment to use the restroom, then detour through the kitchen and return to the front door still licking her lips.

Etymology: Salad spinner modified to salad sinner

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: dee-vee-us-sup-pree-vee-us

Sentence: I came upon Geraldine in the ladies washroom. Running late for the annual Employee Appreciation Luncheon, it was odd to observe the deviousuprevious behavior she exhibited. I saw her hunched over the wastebasket and moved closer to get a better look. She was stuffing cheese cubes and crackers into her mouth at a furious rate of speed. Being well known for her survivalist approach to eating, I now knew her secret.

Etymology: Devious (sneaky, sly, covert, stealthy) + sup (to take a small amount of food or drink, to take supper) + previous (prior to, before)
