Leftovolution

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Left-o-volution

Sentence: Jane was always tired and overworked, leaving take out dinner remnants and other food detritus to populate her fridge, until one day it happened: the slime layer had undergone leftovolution and acquired motile capacity. She felt a strange sense of ownership, or responsibility for this fresh new life, and regretted the thought of using bleach.

Etymology: Left-over: food not eaten and saved for later. Evolution: the development of more adaptive traits through a process of natural selection.

Morphins

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: mawr-fin

Sentence: There's a morphin in the fridge, Judy screamed as she slammed the door shut. Though she had only gotten a quick glimpse when she moved the milk, she knew what is was. The leftover muffin she had promised to finish off last week had inched its way to the back of the ice box and taken on a life of its own with its hairy tentacles clinging to and infiltrating a number of its neighbors. It is going to take a strong stomach and about a gallon of bleach before Judy will feel safe in her kitchen again.

Etymology: morph (to be transformed) + muffin (an individual cup-shaped quick bread made with wheat flour, cornmeal, or the like, and baked in a pan )

Fridgeridoo

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: frij-uh-ree-DOO

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, they forgot to take from their fridge all sorts of beggar's banquets, including hashmagundi, spagbol, scrambled cackleberries and, worst of all, some very ripe durians.

Etymology: Blend of reFRIDGERATOR & DOO: sh*t in its slangly, general pejorative sense. HASHMAGUNDI: "everything & anything" kind of stew. DURIAN: Foul smelling, (perhaps the worst) but delicious tasting fruit from Indonesia.

Did the fridgeridoo play the didgeridoo? - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-01: 08:39:00

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 Exquisitely revolting.The zenith of repugnantisms.Truly unique, O-Bob! - metrohumanx, 2008-12-01: 01:27:00

revolting indeed!! - Jabberwocky, 2008-12-01: 13:04:00

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

Putridish

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: pyu-tre-dish

Sentence: Not prone to scientific queries, the closest Kimberly came to having an interest in science was wanting to know exactly how long she could wait to clean out her fridge. "Just, hypothetically, let's say I have a friend," she started "with several putridishes in her refrigerator. Will those contaminate other things in her refrigerator?" Zinnia, who had minored in botany, answered "It all depends on the cultures. I would worry about growing mycotoxins." This answer terrified Kimberly.

Etymology: Putrid (rotten, foul) + Dish (plate of food) Sounds like "Petri Dish"

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

And, whenever I try a bad recipe I manage to create a putridish to save in the frige (out of guilt) and then eventually throw away - good word. - splendiction, 2010-04-21: 19:46:00
