I actually knew someone who had a three-legged dog with cataracts, poor thing. They called him Tripod. - purpleartichokes, 2008-03-07: 13:39:00

I guess "Tripod" is more appropriate than Lucky. Heh! A great creation purpleartichokes! Ya made me smile... and sing! - Jamagra, 2008-03-07: 15:16:00

Petriflect

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: PET-ra-flekt

Sentence: When Bob described his pet "Phido" as a sanguined-eyed, silky-skinned sweetie, craving to be cuddled, Roxie couldn't wait to meet him. But to her horror, when Phido slithered silently from under a cushion on the sofa she was sitting, she almost apsed into unconsciousness. Not wishing to offend Bob she smiled and petriflected, as if nothing was a hiss. However when Phido sidled up to her and slipped inside her blouse, she feared she was about to be cleopatronized. Bob told her not to worry, saying: "That's his way of showing you that he likes you."

Etymology: Blend of PET, tamed or domesticated animal; PETRIFY, metaphorically to paralyse with fear, shock; FLECT, to bend as in GENFLECTION, to bend knee or touch ground in adoration; obeisance, dote. Nouns: petriflection; a petriflect. "Phido" Gk:ophidia-snake

Uh, wow, I guess I've learned the value of pressing "show all" instead of "more", because I almost completely ripped yours off in mine. I totally didn't mean to, sorry Oz! :( - Banky, 2008-03-08: 09:06:00

Fawnfare

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: fawn fare

Sentence: In Helena Montana, there are over 500 deer living in the city. These big BAMbis are a danger to pets, children, and vehicles.. These big BAMbis destroy lawns, flower beds, trees, and yards. For a long time, animal control and the police, as well as the politicians, refused to do anything about them. It's not nice to want to get rid of BAMbis, no matter how destructive and dangerous they are. So these authorities were playing a confawndance game ... the police said it was up to animal control ... animal control said it was up to the police ... and the politicians turned a deaf ear. Amidst much fawnfare, an attempt to truck them back into the mountains was made, but they quickly returned within a day or two. They won't stay in the mountains. Meanwhile, children, pets, adults, and even cars, were BAMMED and hurt by the big BAMbis hooves and horns as they leap fences and roam unabated. Despite much fawnfare for the BAMbis, this fall, the confawndance game ended. The police removed seventy five to the food bank lockers. With all the snow and cold, the BAMbis have gotten more agressive and dangerous this December. It's hard to work up a fawnfare for a three-hundred pound Buck, with a five-point rack of horns, chasing you out of your own yard, and menancing your children, as it raids your garbage bins, strewing garbage all over the neighborhood. If you've ever had one run into your car, damaging you and the car, you quickly drop the fawnfare. Without any further fawnfare, tonight on the news, they announced another hundred and fifty will go into the foodbank lockers. (The above is based on the very real problem of herds of deer living in Helena. It is a very controversial issue.)

Etymology: FANFARE, FAWN. Fanfare - any ostentious, dramatic, showy display. Fawn - try to please; any action to seek favor, also a baby deer.
