Backhereia

Created by: galwaywegian

Pronunciation: bak heer ee ya

Sentence: The refrigerator was old, the paint chipped and the door handle had long since disintegrated. Upon prising the door open, the light no longer came on, but in the darkness you could hear the backhereia shuffling around and when your eyes became accustomed to the darkness you could make out its vaguely luminescent trail.

Etymology: bacteria, back here.

A chiller-thriller word... it evokes "they're ba-ack!" with a good measure of hysteria thrown in as well. Good one galwaywegian! - bananabender, 2008-02-03: 09:23:00

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 )

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.

Frigidaredevills

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: frijid der dev ills

Sentence: Frida cautiously tip-toed over to her fridge. It had been quiet all day, just the odd gurgling and chugging of the motor, nothing to be afraid of, right? She cautiously opened the white steel door covered in magnets and notices. The moment the door opened, the smell hit her like a brick. They were back... the Frigidaredevils, piled high and ready to topple out the door. Liquified salad fixings, mystery meats, passe pizza slices, green fuzzy former fruits and veggies, milk that had turned biker (bad) and numerous description-defying previous edibles. In their current state not even CSI could identify them. Enough!, decided Frida of this penicilliness! She grabbed a face mask, plastic gloves and a large garbage bag and went to town clearing out the foul fridge dwellers. The bag was sealed tightly and immediately run down to the back alley for garbage pick-up. She could swear she heard noises coming from the bag and they weren't that of the Glad Man! When she had done, she cleaned and sprayed the now bare interior and placed her fresh groceries in their new temporary home. How long before these innocents would turn on her and become Frigidaredevills themselves?

Etymology: Frigidaire (Brand of refrigerator) & Dare Devils (reckless impetuous irresponsible;presumptuously daring) & Ills (resulting in suffering or adversity; an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)
