Paramourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: para merjin see

Sentence: When Tara met Gord, it was love at first fright. She had arranged for her best friend, May, to call her to interrupt the date if it was a paramourgency...and sadly it was. Gord neither looked as good as his photo, displayed the same characteristics as his profile, nor smelled especially fresh, even if his moves were. She knew if she had to save herself, she would have to resort to divirginary tactics. It was definitely time for a May Day call to come in!

Etymology: Paramour (a woman's lover) & Emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)

Amourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: a moor jen see

Sentence: When Penelope arranged to meet her blind date, Pierre, at Le Cafe Bistro, she was very glad that she had arranged an amourgency call with her best friend Brigitte. Brigitte was to call ten minutes into their meeting and Penelope could use the opportunity to abort the mission if her date disappointed. The foul aroma which permeated Pierre and his clothing made that ten minutes seem like an eternity. Luckily she was saved by the bell and escaped from Pepe LePew just in time...eyes watering, breath held, gorge rising...need to throw away clothes and scrub down quickly...eewwww!

Etymology: Amour (French word for "love"... an intense feeling of affection;a usually secretive or illicit sexual relationship) & Emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)

Telibi

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: TEL-uh-bahy

Sentence: Bob didn't smell a rat, when Roxie's phone rang and she told him that she had to break their date and leave immediately, in order to return to her post at the local hospital and care for a patient suffering from bromhidrosis. It was a clever telibi, hatched together with her girlfriend, in case of an emergency, for in the end all they finished up doing was going to a theatre and watching "Lord of the Rings."

Etymology: Blend of TEL of telephone & LIBI of alibi, with a homophonic suggestion of bi, bi of goodbye. Alibi: an excuse, esp. to avoid blame or to use to find one's way out of trouble, work etc.
