Gobblesate

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Gobb-el-sayt

Sentence: As a child, Tom's mother always reminded him of the starving children in Africa everytime he thought about leaving his dinner. So even now at the age of forty two he would never leave a single thing on his plate in order to ease the guilt of the mental picture she had planted firmly in his head. Even if he had to sit there for hours just to make sure every scrap of food had been eaten, it didn't matter as long as he felt he had done his bit for mankind. This could possibly explain why he weighed thirty five and a half stone!

Etymology: Gobble( to hurriedly eat a large amount) + Sate( supply with as much or more than desired or can be managed) = Gobblesate
