Freneticfutation

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: rhymes with genetic mutation

Sentence: Barb was so tired of cooking after the big feast, that she started dining out every night. She would bring leftovers home and put them in the fridge quickly so as not to have to see the developing compost pile that awaited her. When the smell of the leftover Chinese food, mingled with the rancid lunchmeat and the liquified cucumber finally escaped the confines of the fridge, she tied a scarf around her face with some dryer sheets tucked in the fold, donned elbow length gloves and braced her self for the freneticfutation that almost convinced her to abandon her home.

Etymology: Based on genetic mutation, but changed to frenetic to imply a crazy pace and futation to get the idea of food in there.

metrohumanx The vivid images this invokes makes it hard to keep this one down. People often ignore the "liquified cucumber"...my least favorite discard. Great story, Nu! - metrohumanx, 2008-12-01: 14:07:00

eww gross, but a great word!! - mweinmann, 2008-12-02: 10:23:00

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

Good one, Bob...you maggot my vote! - Nosila, 2008-12-01: 21:58:00

Beastronomy

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: bee st ron oh mee

Sentence: Lefty was not only left-handed, he was left-fooded. Lefty kept food in the fridge so long it grew hair and started to move. Lefty had a real knack for beastronomy.

Etymology: Beastly and Gastonomy. Gastronomy is another name for food. Beastly has three meanings. 1) creature - like the moldy hairy beast leftovers can become. 2) brutal - which the smell is. 3) nasty, thoroughly unpleasant and objectionable.

metrohumanx Beastronomy smacks of pastrami raised by wolves. :) - metrohumanx, 2008-12-01: 00:56:00

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.
