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

Like the alliteration of 'fridgelos in Pheobe's fridge. Fun to say, - silveryaspen, 2008-12-01: 11:30:00

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

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!

Repastdue

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: re past doo

Sentence: Freda knew the minute she walked into her house that they were waiting for her. Without even looking she knew that the items in her fridge were repastdue. One instant of fridge door opening left a lingering unpleasant odor and no doubt in her mind. Dawning her version of a HAZMAT suit (gloves, mask,rubber boots, etc.) she bravely scooped the now mostly liquid contents into the waiting garbage bag. Bleachy hot water and a new baking soda box and she was ready to start the whole process all over again, after she went grocery shopping...

Etymology: Repast (a meal) & Past Due (overdue on the sell-by date;expired)
