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 )

Sentence: Jenny opened her fridge and was appalled at the the fact that the chicken she had been saving for the past week had nutrisentified and wanted to leave the fridge.

Etymology: This word is derived from "nutrient", as in he food itself, and "sentient", to show that to everyone's dismay, it now has a mind of it's own.

Pronunciation: Deh-viht-tills

Sentence: Off turned the light, and the nightly terror began for the as-yet-unexpired food. The nosferatuna slid stealthily into door hopper, where the condiments rested. A silent shadow, it sunk its celery fangs into the neck of the mayonnaise jar, gorging upon its salty fatty humors. Having turned, the zomayo lurched itself over its retaining wall and began to feast on the cauliflower, which it had mistaken in its saturated stupor for brains. A large sasquash ripped its way through the forest of broccoli and emerged upon a family of tomatoes, huddling in the corner of the produce crisper. A gout of seeded ichor sprayed across the front of the clear plastic drawer. Then, a hush fell through the refrigerator as the elder god of the cooler, Cthulhummus rose, an amorphous evil clad in finest shimmering Saran. Muffled screams issued from the magnetic seal around the door, but fell upon sleeping ears. Tonight the devittles reigned, and no food would go untainted.

Etymology: devil (or possibly deviant) + vittles


You get my vote for using Cthulhummus. Dagon and Nyarlothotep beware! :) - yellowbird, 2008-02-01: 14:27:00

Wow - so many great stories today - I love nosferatuna - could also be nosfuratuna (furry mould) - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-01: 14:41:00

Great style - reads like a mystery ... as well as a spoiled food history! Kudos for the novel-ty of the day! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-01: 15:42:00

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)

Roared with laughter ... evokes so many thoughts from given a whole new meaning to being Turksih or being a Turkey ... or even if there's a planet Turkey named after the country ... or it's people? This word boggles the imagination! I like it! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-01: 08:45:00

A great word - im sure ET looks nothing like the image you created!! - sean30, 2008-02-01: 15:05:00

I think it's time for it to turkey off! Crazy, creative word ! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-01: 15:43:00

You'd better put a lock on your fridge door or you could end up with an astral-nomical phone bill! Great word! - bananabender, 2008-02-03: 09:53:00

Pronunciation: to mayn ay ters

Sentence: Sarah entered her kitchen with trepidation. He was back, just like he promised the last time he had visited and terrorized her. She knew he was back because of the putrid odor. This time, he wasn't alone, he had brought reinforcements who were as evil as he. The sour milk, that very old potato salad, green meat and other items that would need a CSI Trace Analysis to determine their origin were pillaging her fridge. The minute her fridge door opened, it's vile rotting scent permeated the whole house. A mere disinfectant bath was not going to be enough to rid her this time of the Ptomainaters. She was going to have to get an Electroluxorcism or have an Amanadectomy to get the vile appliance out of her home. As the stainless steel coffin for the Ptomainaters was removed, Sarah heard that voice with the strange Austrian accent saying again, "Hasta La Vista, Baby...I'll be back!"

Etymology: Ptomaine (serious food poisoning due to bacterial putrefacation) & Terminators (someone who exterminates) & Ate (eaten)


Whew! Now she needs to terminate his visits! Excellent verbotomy! - splendiction, 2010-04-21: 19:55:00
