Fridgremlins

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /frij'-grem-linz/

Sentence: Brenda could hear something moving in there (in the Frigidaire) and when she peeked, and the light came on, she first heard a fierce squeal (or perhaps that was just the squeaky door), and then she was sure she saw fridgremlins scurrying behind the milk carton and the leftover casserole dish. She slammed the door shut and ran to find the number to the exterminator.

Etymology: fridge - shortening of refrigerator (from Latin, frīgus "cold") + gremlins - small, mischievous creatures (popularized by the RAF as a cause of mechanical failures; possibly from Old English, gremman "to anger, vex" + -lin of goblin) Don't get them wet!

Oh man! I think the management should look into putting the comment box elsewhere because I always accidentally compose my sentence in it! :-p - logarithm, 2008-12-01: 05:54:00

Like the alliteration of 'fridgelos in Pheobe's fridge. Fun to say, - silveryaspen, 2008-12-01: 11:30:00

Hahah... I was attempting a tongue twister. :-p - logarithm, 2008-12-02: 06:21:00

Morphins

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: mawr-fin

Sentence: There's a morphin in the fridge, Judy screamed as she slammed the door shut. Though she had only gotten a quick glimpse when she moved the milk, she knew what is was. The leftover muffin she had promised to finish off last week had inched its way to the back of the ice box and taken on a life of its own with its hairy tentacles clinging to and infiltrating a number of its neighbors. It is going to take a strong stomach and about a gallon of bleach before Judy will feel safe in her kitchen again.

Etymology: morph (to be transformed) + muffin (an individual cup-shaped quick bread made with wheat flour, cornmeal, or the like, and baked in a pan )

Contamineats

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: kun TAM in eats

Sentence: Ima Hogg decided it was probably time to clean out her refrigerator when the smell started to hit her. 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.

Etymology: eats (slang for food) + contaminates
