Lintassesment

Created by: Kennecticut

Pronunciation: lint~assesment

Sentence: With her thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool, it was confirmed that this filament could be removed. She turned to page 32 of the manual on ' The right tool for the job' and found she needed the enticement tool, stored adjacent to the crevice tool. Noting the enticement tool has a row of brushes to if not actually vacuum the lint then at least entrap it for later cleaning of the enticement tool itself. The thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool also works well for this specialized task. She might have done just as well utilizing the black slack lint magnet tool. Maybe next time, then she can leave the work up to the professionals and the dry cleaners.

Eurekagain

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: yoŏrēkəgen

Sentence: Milly is one to give everybody a second chance. This even applies to dust bunnies. If her sad old vacuum isn’t able to pick up a lump of dust, she has been known to give them the Eurekagain treatment, running over and over these fuzzy little critters usually with less-than-wonderful results. She may even get down on her hands and knees to break up dustballs to make them easier to deal with.

Etymology: eureka (A brand of vaccuum)(a cry of joy or satisfaction when one finds or discovers something) + again (another time; once more)

Hoovermaneuver

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hoo ver man oo ver

Sentence: Al Capone was one nasty gangster who terrorized Chicago during Prohibition. Despite many arrests by the FBI, he always slithered out of their reach by having even more dishonest lawyers and buying out the police, judges and city officials. The FBI called in the Treasury and under Eliot Ness, Capone was eventually caught on tax evasion and sentenced to life. This hoovermaneuver sucked him out of mainstream, like a piece of lint into a giant canister until he died in prison of syphilis. Here endeth the lesson.

Etymology: Hoover (vacuum cleaner brand;lawyer who director of the FBI for 48 years)
