Corabbitation

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: ko-rab-bi-TEY-shun

Sentence: I heard scratching; was that Cotton-tail - had he returned?" Quickly, I leapt out of bed, and opened the bedroom door. Sweeping my furry little friend up in my arms, I said, "Where have you been?" In a nanosecond, I knew the answer, six little bunnies were running over my toes. Cotton-tail had brought his family home. Jumping up onto my bed, they all snuggled around me: it was cozy: it was contentment: it was corabbitation. Suddenly, and it seemed like only seconds later, a jagged elbow buried itself into my ribs. Roxie rasped, "Wake up; dreaming again; I suppose, what about this time?" "Rabbits," I said. "More like Playboy Bunnies," she responded.

Etymology: Rabbit & Co-habitation.

Goatobed

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: go - to - bed

Sentence: No sooner had the infomercial finished, than Jerry had dialled the number to order his goatobed, for just $49.95. It was not just the chance to reduce his electricity bill, but the electric blankpet was now downright dangerous, the shleep had proved unsuccessful with his insomnia, and there was the prospect of home-made feta. He was hoping to phone his order in early enough to score a bonus pillow shampoodle to keep his ears warm at night. He just hoped that the duVET bills would not be too expensive. No longer would he be dogtired after his catnaps.

Etymology: "go to bed" + goat

Codepetent

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: co dee PET ent

Sentence: You know how 1-year-olds move around a lot when they sleep and wind up in funny and cute positions? And how if you sleep with them, you sometimes end up with a foot or a butt in your face? Well, it isn't so cute when they are 8 and still in your bed, but taking up a lot more room, and you get kicked or punched all the time. So you have to feel bad for Indy Cysive, whose 8-year-old happened to be a chimpanzee who still insisted on sleeping in Indy's bed every night. Indy had even bought a special bed just for Harry the chimp, but every night when she tried to put Harry in it, he whimpered and wrapped his arms around her. Indy secretly missed those chimp baby years when he had needed her so much, and she was too much of a codepetent to say no to Harry. So the expensive pet bed remained unused. And almost every morning, Indy woke to find a fuzzy arm draped over her face. At least Harry was willing to keep his diapers on, since he did weigh 150 pounds by then.

Etymology: codependent + pet

Xenocturnalia

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ze-noc-tur-na-li-a/

Sentence: Sleeping on the same bed with Clarisse Starling is one thing, but this was above and beyond the XENOCTURNALIA that Daizy the Sheep signed up for when it joined agent Starling to be a true and faithful sidekick. As Hannibal Lecter smiled and whispered his customary: “Good evening Clarisse,” the poor lamb went silent and quietly left the bedroom.

Etymology: XENO - prefix that usually refers to an across-species process or act (e.g. XENOtransplantation; XENOgraft); NOCTURNAL - night-related, usually sleep related; -ALIA - a suffix reserved for a ritual of a sexually suggestive nature (e.g. SaturnALIA)

Menagerieatrois

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: men a jah ree a twa

Sentence: When Angus moved in with Cattelena, he herd that her bovine was to menagerieatrois with them. Sometimes he wished he had been more of a maverick and had had time to ruminate; take a poll or gotten a Papal Bull about the hayrrangement. Suddenly, phrases like "Hit the Hay", "BedSpread", "Counterpain", "Rustling the sheets", "Udder ecstasy", "Beef Tongue", "Ranch Dressing", "Ride a Limousin" and "DetOX" took on a whole new meaning for him. And many's a night he awoke Friesian because someone had steered the covers off him or he had a very sharp pain in his calf! Every morning, there was a stampede for the bathroom. At this rate,and with his short horn, he would never be a fodder.

Etymology: menage a trois ("sleeping" arrangement of 2 with a third participant, wink, wink, nod, nod, say no more, a wink's as good as a nod to a blind horse) & menagerie (a facility where animals are kept)
