Encroachclass

libertybelle

Created by: libertybelle

Pronunciation: en-kroach-klass

Sentence: The plane hadn't even left the terminal when I realized that my bargain ticket placed me smack in the middle of encroach-class - where the person in front of me had already put his jacket over the back of my seat, thus rendering my tray table useless, and reclined all the way back. The fact that I was sitting in an exit row and could not recline made my encroach-class predicament all the more uncomfortable.

Etymology: encroach + coach class

Hilarious! lol! - bananabender, 2008-01-29: 18:38:00

great wordplay. There's also the tight constricted feeling for your etymology too. - bananabender, 2008-01-29: 21:45:00

Good one, bookowl! If the passenger is not sitting on the aisle, would that make them a window viper? - Nosila, 2008-01-29: 22:48:00

Great word for all the planes with their cramped seating ... Right on! - silveryaspen, 2008-01-29: 23:57:00

Clever & funny! Good word. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-01-30: 16:14:00

Did you hear about the man who crossed a parrot with a boa constrictor. He didn't know what he got, but believe me, when it talks-he listens. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-05: 19:44:00

Cramsportation

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: kramz por TAY shun

Sentence: Packer didn't know what was a worse or more crowded way of getting to his relatives' house for the holidays, StuffWest Airlines or the JamTrak train. He considered driving the ten hours just to cut down on the physical and olfactory invasion to his personal space. Finally, his family decided on having their Thanksgiving dinner by computer conferencing. It was cheaper, and more importantly, it cut down on disputes and drama!

Etymology: cram + transportation

Dreathday

Created by: wackyscience

Pronunciation: dret-they

Sentence: "Ah...It goes back a long time, to the year 1505. I was travelling in this lovely little bob-about, eating halloween pumpkins, when Harry Potter leaned back on his Quidditch broom. That was my dreathday.", says Nearly Headless Nick, thus explaining the mystery of his wonderful name.

Etymology: Dreath = Dread + Death. Dread-A feeling of awkwardness, or darkness ominously looming over you. You may get feelings like butterflies crittering in your stomach, or like being sucked into a huge black hole. Especially used to describe situations like the day you get your grades in that algebra test, and of course, at the receiving end of an extremely sleepy passenger. Death-I dont need to tell you what this is. Ultimate mortis. Bye-Bye Time. Say your prayers. Go home to Momma. This is life...and death. Day-Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Everyday, Holiday, Doomsday, Mayday, Yesterday, Today, Birthday, Someday, Faraday, Payday, Heyday, Weekday...want more?

Aeropain

Sentence: Air Travel is a marvel and an enigma thought Barry. Tons of steel able to fly effortlessly and speedily through the air, finding airports in the fog and landing safely and mainly on time, doging other flying objects. And yet these same marvels put a seat that reclines 6 inches into your personal space, spilling your dinner and making a short air commute endless and an aeropain! Go figure...

Lunettetic

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: loon-net-tick

Sentence: As soon as the second obese man had settled to his right on the aisle, Roger noticed the seat in front of him. Down it crawled, inexorably lower with every passing second, wicking the sweat out of Roger, turning his hands clammy as the corpse he would inevitably become. His heart raced furiously as he calculated his escape, but it was too late; the plush polyester blade sat before him, adorned with a tacky 80s multi-color motif. So this is how it ended, huh, wedged between two Brandoesque men, a crazed lunettetic whose last meal was 5 stale pretzels.

Etymology: lunette - the portion of the guillotine that fixed the head in place, composed of two blocks each with semi-circular indentations + lunatic - an insane person

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Lunette describes Marie Antoinette ... so perfectly, your word we aren't likely to forget! Very interesting! - silveryaspen, 2008-01-29: 09:35:00

fantastic paragraph - Jabberwocky, 2008-01-29: 10:43:00

great sentence! Your word and sentence captures the essence of the definition so well. - bananabender, 2008-01-29: 18:46:00

Narrowbinded

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: nhar-oh-byn-ded

Sentence: Zinnia liked to think of herself as open-minded but her commute to work, via public transport, had slowed changed her mind. Indeed, she was now so anxious of being narrowbinded that she would go to great lengths to assure a seat by herself. The fake dog stool she found at a gag shop was a good deterrent, but she left it on too many buses and was arousing suspicion among the drivers. She finally discovered that the best way to protect her person space from breech was to softly sing while eating canned tuna.

Etymology: narrow (small space) + binded (sic. secure by tying) play on "narrow minded"
