Freneticfutation

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: rhymes with genetic mutation

Sentence: Barb was so tired of cooking after the big feast, that she started dining out every night. She would bring leftovers home and put them in the fridge quickly so as not to have to see the developing compost pile that awaited her. When the smell of the leftover Chinese food, mingled with the rancid lunchmeat and the liquified cucumber finally escaped the confines of the fridge, she tied a scarf around her face with some dryer sheets tucked in the fold, donned elbow length gloves and braced her self for the freneticfutation that almost convinced her to abandon her home.

Etymology: Based on genetic mutation, but changed to frenetic to imply a crazy pace and futation to get the idea of food in there.

eww gross, but a great word!! - mweinmann, 2008-12-02: 10:23:00

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: kun TAM in eats

She went through and got rid of all the expired, decayed, bloated, fuzzy, and spoiled contamineats, which she did twice a year whether it needed it or not. It might have been the potatoes ughrotten or the fetid cheese, but something was definitely stinky in there.

Fridgeridoo

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: frij-uh-ree-DOO

Sentence: When Bob and Roxie left for a six month holiday in The Outback, nothing could prepare them for the fridgeridoo that would await them on their return. For in their hurry to get on the road, they forgot to take from their fridge all sorts of beggar's banquets, including hashmagundi, spagbol, scrambled cackleberries and, worst of all, some very ripe durians.

Etymology: Blend of reFRIDGERATOR & DOO: sh*t in its slangly, general pejorative sense. HASHMAGUNDI: "everything & anything" kind of stew. DURIAN: Foul smelling, (perhaps the worst) but delicious tasting fruit from Indonesia.
