Contamineats

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: kun TAM in eats

Sentence: Ima Hogg decided it was probably time to clean out her refrigerator when the smell started to hit her. She went through and got rid of all the expired, decayed, bloated, fuzzy, and spoiled contamineats, which she did twice a year whether it needed it or not. It might have been the potatoes ughrotten or the fetid cheese, but something was definitely stinky in there.

Etymology: eats (slang for food) + contaminates

Devittles

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: Deh-viht-tills

Sentence: Off turned the light, and the nightly terror began for the as-yet-unexpired food. The nosferatuna slid stealthily into door hopper, where the condiments rested. A silent shadow, it sunk its celery fangs into the neck of the mayonnaise jar, gorging upon its salty fatty humors. Having turned, the zomayo lurched itself over its retaining wall and began to feast on the cauliflower, which it had mistaken in its saturated stupor for brains. A large sasquash ripped its way through the forest of broccoli and emerged upon a family of tomatoes, huddling in the corner of the produce crisper. A gout of seeded ichor sprayed across the front of the clear plastic drawer. Then, a hush fell through the refrigerator as the elder god of the cooler, Cthulhummus rose, an amorphous evil clad in finest shimmering Saran. Muffled screams issued from the magnetic seal around the door, but fell upon sleeping ears. Tonight the devittles reigned, and no food would go untainted.

Etymology: devil (or possibly deviant) + vittles

You get my vote for using Cthulhummus. Dagon and Nyarlothotep beware! :) - yellowbird, 2008-02-01: 14:27:00

Wow - so many great stories today - I love nosferatuna - could also be nosfuratuna (furry mould) - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-01: 14:41:00

Great style - reads like a mystery ... as well as a spoiled food history! Kudos for the novel-ty of the day! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-01: 15:42:00

its good but the sentence is a little long - purpleman, 2008-02-02: 12:49:00

Excremaggotia

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: eks-kr-MAG-go-shuh

Sentence: When Bob and Roxie left for a six month holiday in The Outback, nothing could prepare them for the fridgeridoo that would await them on their return. For in their hurry to get on the road, and Roxie's penchant for plastic- wrapping last night's leftovers, the spagbolia slowly, but surely, turned into excremaggotia.

Etymology: Blend of EXCREMENT: putrid matter, dung, ordure; MAGGOT: grub, fly larva & IA: suffix forming names of countries, diseases, flowers, asf.

metrohumanx I'm going to have to vote for this word based solely on it's nauseating construction. Even without sentence or etymology, it sounds sickening. You almost don't want to know the definition. Brrrrrrrr! - metrohumanx, 2008-12-01: 14:13:00

Powerful word. It makes me want to barf and scream ... especially on the second syllable! How can a verbotomy be so excellent but still be so nauseating? - silveryaspen, 2008-12-01: 17:41:00

Scaryfridgidairy

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Skair - ee - frid - gid - air - ee

Sentence: Roscoe had a scaryfridgidairy dream that because he had not cleaned out his refigerator in several weeks, the dairy products had all become scary mutated beings. In the dream, he opened the door and was assaulted by moldy green cheese curd men with icicle swords. The smelly odor of curdled milk assaulted him and he turned to see menacing clots seeping out of his fridge and growing into large sour pools of white goo that were attempting to trap him and stick him to the floor. Even his beloved vanilla mocha chiller had taken form and was glaring at him in a creepy way. Last but not least, the potato salad was encrusted with some type of scaly green substance that had become “armor” and the whole container had formed The First Salad Regiment of the Refrigerator Army ready to do battle….

Etymology: Scary (frightening, intimidating, scary) + Fridge (short for refrigerator) + Also Fridgid (play on work frigid which means cold).... The word then ends with Dairy (foods that contain milk products)

Fridgremlins

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /frij'-grem-linz/

Sentence: Brenda could hear something moving in there (in the Frigidaire) and when she peeked, and the light came on, she first heard a fierce squeal (or perhaps that was just the squeaky door), and then she was sure she saw fridgremlins scurrying behind the milk carton and the leftover casserole dish. She slammed the door shut and ran to find the number to the exterminator.

Etymology: fridge - shortening of refrigerator (from Latin, frīgus "cold") + gremlins - small, mischievous creatures (popularized by the RAF as a cause of mechanical failures; possibly from Old English, gremman "to anger, vex" + -lin of goblin) Don't get them wet!

Reanimunchies

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: ree-AN-ih-mun-cheese

Sentence: Charles Dexter Ward maintained a slovenly flat down near the river. His blasphemous experiments occupied most of his time, so he enlisted the services of a cleaning woman. One bleak December night he heard a scream from the kitchen above him. Dropping his ancient leather-bound volume of spells, Charles bounded up the rotten stairway to find Heidi's partial remains steaming on the pantry tiles like a heap of microwaved bratwurst. In a flash, Charles realized the awful truth: His poorly refrigerated leftovers had become REANIMUNCHIES and attacked the hired help in a way that made an open coffin for Heidi...unthinkable. The icebox door was ajar, and a greasy streak led out to the moors like the trail of an irradiated slug. Perhaps, with a little more work, his breakthrough in supernatural food preservation WAS possible, thought Charles as he tenderly slipped Heidi's remains, and her Swiffer, into the grey waters beside the pier.

Etymology: REANIMate+mUNCHIES=REANIMUNCHIES.......REANIMATE:To give new life to,To bring to life by scientific or mystical means.....MUNCHIES:light snack foods, sometimes exhibiting motion and reproductive capabilities.
