Pronunciation: Deh-viht-tills

Sentence: Off turned the light, and the nightly terror began for the as-yet-unexpired food. The nosferatuna slid stealthily into door hopper, where the condiments rested. A silent shadow, it sunk its celery fangs into the neck of the mayonnaise jar, gorging upon its salty fatty humors. Having turned, the zomayo lurched itself over its retaining wall and began to feast on the cauliflower, which it had mistaken in its saturated stupor for brains. A large sasquash ripped its way through the forest of broccoli and emerged upon a family of tomatoes, huddling in the corner of the produce crisper. A gout of seeded ichor sprayed across the front of the clear plastic drawer. Then, a hush fell through the refrigerator as the elder god of the cooler, Cthulhummus rose, an amorphous evil clad in finest shimmering Saran. Muffled screams issued from the magnetic seal around the door, but fell upon sleeping ears. Tonight the devittles reigned, and no food would go untainted.

Etymology: devil (or possibly deviant) + vittles


You get my vote for using Cthulhummus. Dagon and Nyarlothotep beware! :) - yellowbird, 2008-02-01: 14:27:00

Wow - so many great stories today - I love nosferatuna - could also be nosfuratuna (furry mould) - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-01: 14:41:00

Great style - reads like a mystery ... as well as a spoiled food history! Kudos for the novel-ty of the day! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-01: 15:42:00

Pronunciation: ree-AN-ih-mun-cheese

Sentence: Charles Dexter Ward maintained a slovenly flat down near the river. His blasphemous experiments occupied most of his time, so he enlisted the services of a cleaning woman. One bleak December night he heard a scream from the kitchen above him. Dropping his ancient leather-bound volume of spells, Charles bounded up the rotten stairway to find Heidi's partial remains steaming on the pantry tiles like a heap of microwaved bratwurst. In a flash, Charles realized the awful truth: His poorly refrigerated leftovers had become REANIMUNCHIES and attacked the hired help in a way that made an open coffin for Heidi...unthinkable. The icebox door was ajar, and a greasy streak led out to the moors like the trail of an irradiated slug. Perhaps, with a little more work, his breakthrough in supernatural food preservation WAS possible, thought Charles as he tenderly slipped Heidi's remains, and her Swiffer, into the grey waters beside the pier.

Etymology: REANIMate+mUNCHIES=REANIMUNCHIES.......REANIMATE:To give new life to,To bring to life by scientific or mystical means.....MUNCHIES:light snack foods, sometimes exhibiting motion and reproductive capabilities.

Pronunciation: frijid der dev ills

Sentence: Frida cautiously tip-toed over to her fridge. It had been quiet all day, just the odd gurgling and chugging of the motor, nothing to be afraid of, right? She cautiously opened the white steel door covered in magnets and notices. The moment the door opened, the smell hit her like a brick. They were back... the Frigidaredevils, piled high and ready to topple out the door. Liquified salad fixings, mystery meats, passe pizza slices, green fuzzy former fruits and veggies, milk that had turned biker (bad) and numerous description-defying previous edibles. In their current state not even CSI could identify them. Enough!, decided Frida of this penicilliness! She grabbed a face mask, plastic gloves and a large garbage bag and went to town clearing out the foul fridge dwellers. The bag was sealed tightly and immediately run down to the back alley for garbage pick-up. She could swear she heard noises coming from the bag and they weren't that of the Glad Man! When she had done, she cleaned and sprayed the now bare interior and placed her fresh groceries in their new temporary home. How long before these innocents would turn on her and become Frigidaredevills themselves?

Etymology: Frigidaire (Brand of refrigerator) & Dare Devils (reckless impetuous irresponsible;presumptuously daring) & Ills (resulting in suffering or adversity; an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)

Pronunciation: pyu-tre-dish

Sentence: Not prone to scientific queries, the closest Kimberly came to having an interest in science was wanting to know exactly how long she could wait to clean out her fridge. "Just, hypothetically, let's say I have a friend," she started "with several putridishes in her refrigerator. Will those contaminate other things in her refrigerator?" Zinnia, who had minored in botany, answered "It all depends on the cultures. I would worry about growing mycotoxins." This answer terrified Kimberly.

Etymology: Putrid (rotten, foul) + Dish (plate of food) Sounds like "Petri Dish"


And, whenever I try a bad recipe I manage to create a putridish to save in the frige (out of guilt) and then eventually throw away - good word. - splendiction, 2010-04-21: 19:46:00
