Baadfellow

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: baad fel lo

Sentence: Baaraack Obaamaa had shared Cissie & Oscar's bed since he was a little lamb. Every night he jumped up onto the spread and cuddled in and became their baadfellow. The only problem was that now he was full grown and weighed a good 200 pounds, there was no room for him...he could no longer pull the wool over their eyes. Every night was an udder nightmare, as he kicked like Dan Merino in his sleep. "How can we tell him he's not human and needs to go into the farmyard and find himself a wife?", asked Cissie. "We just set him out and make him find his own way...it's tough love!", said Oscar. They enjoyed about 6 months of peace, until one cold night, their door was rammed open and in walked Baaraack Obaamaa, his Embraceable Ewe and their triplet lambs: Rambo, Ewelysses and José Fleeciano. It was when they all piled onto Cissie & Oscars bed and settled in for a nice warm sleep that Cissie & Oscar realized one thing. You really cannot get to sleep by counting sheep!

Etymology: Bedfelow (someone you share a bed with) & Baa (a sheep's cry)

Goatobed

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: go - to - bed

Sentence: No sooner had the infomercial finished, than Jerry had dialled the number to order his goatobed, for just $49.95. It was not just the chance to reduce his electricity bill, but the electric blankpet was now downright dangerous, the shleep had proved unsuccessful with his insomnia, and there was the prospect of home-made feta. He was hoping to phone his order in early enough to score a bonus pillow shampoodle to keep his ears warm at night. He just hoped that the duVET bills would not be too expensive. No longer would he be dogtired after his catnaps.

Etymology: "go to bed" + goat
