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

Beastronomy

Created by: silveryaspen

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)

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.
