Nackworst

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: nak worst

Sentence: Little Eddie's Mother, Edna, always doted on him. She saw everything he did as a special talent, even though most other people could do it much better. The doctor told her to control what Eddie ate, since he was growing more wider than taller every year. But how could she, when the child had an absolute gift for cleaning up his plate (and other peoples') to make any mother or cook feel proud? Little Eddie's Nackworst was pigging out and as she always said, "Losing was for losers!"

Etymology: Nack (anyone else has a Knack,a special way of doing something, but Eddie was special!) & Worst (not the best at something; the weakest effort or poorest achievement one is capable of) & rhymes with Knackwurst (short thick highly seasoned sausage)

Wingurgitate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: win gurj it ayt

Sentence: No one could wingurgitate like Little Bobby Eatmore (he was called after his Daddy, Big Bobby Eatmore, not just cuzza his size). Little Bobby could out-eat anyone.

Etymology: Win (attain success or reach a desired goal) & Ingurgitate (overeat or eat immodestly; make a pig of oneself)

Insignifinesse

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /in-sig-ni'-fi-ness/

Sentence: Shouts of "Watch this, Mom! Watch what I can do!" could be heard repeated for hours on end at the community swimming pool, as little Jerome practiced swimming underwater, although all he was really doing was putting his head under the water for a few seconds and wiggling convulsively. His mother, of course, saw this insignifinesse as the makings of a future Olypian.

Etymology: insignificance - lacking importance or consequence (from Latin, in- "non" significāre "signal") + finesse - skill in handling a difficult task; an artful maneuver (from Old French, fin "subtle, delicate")
