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!

Oh man! I think the management should look into putting the comment box elsewhere because I always accidentally compose my sentence in it! :-p - logarithm, 2008-12-01: 05:54:00

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.

Festericed

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Fest-er-ie-st

Sentence: When Julie returned from her two week holiday in Greece, she noticed a foul smell eminating from her kitchen. Realising it was coming from the fridge, she gingerly opened the door. To her horror, there, lying on a plate was a thick lump of green mould she wasn't sure what it started out as but she had a funny feeling that she had forgotten to throw away the leftover curry that she had half eaten the night before she went away. The whole thing had festericed into a completely new life form. She knew she had to get rid of it quick before it began to form some sort of intelligence, so she scooped it into a bag and threw it into the incinerator.

Etymology: Fester(of food,become rotten, perish) + Iced(chilled. cool)
