Toothstick

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: tooth/stik

Sentence: For some reason all the ladies in Josh's "Be a Vegan, Save a Cow" cooking class were not finding him as charming as they usually did. Not only were they no longer laughing at his jokes tonight, but some were giving him nasty looks from across the room. Unbeknownst to him he had a few toothsticks from the scarf-fest earlier at McDonald's. Yes, it was obvious to the women that he had been charming for weeks that he was NOT the vegetarian he claimed to be!

Etymology: Derived from toothpick: A small stick of wood, plastic, metal or other substance used to remove food from the teeth, usually after a meal. A toothSTICK is when a meal hangs around for an encore. :)

Morselaze

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mor sell ayz

Etymology: Morsel (a small amount of solid food; a mouthfu) & Laze (be idle; exist in a changeless situation) & sounds like La Marseillaise (French National Anthem)
