Sinmatation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sin ma tay shun

Sentence: John's kitchen was a chemist's nightmare. His prepared and processed foods were full of ingredients with very long, complex and foreign sounding components. His fridge and freezer were filled with modified products like near-beer, fake-a-cola, meatcheat, shamham, narydairy, stiltedcheese, designwine, oughterwater, yolkjoke, pearsatz and artifishfingers. John had traded away nutrition and healthy sustenance for convenience and sinmatation. His pantry contained replicas of foods, like synammon, appeteasers, fakemixes, bastardpasta, forgeporridge, macaphoni, wannabeans, dupesoup,inbreads, fauxjoe, cornterfeits and other appetite simulants. Yes, John, would learn later in life that trading off cooking time and a few calories and possible tooth decay for mysterious, unpronounceable carcinogenic substances was a short-sighted exchange.

Etymology: Sin (an act that is regarded by theologians as a transgression of God's will) & Synthetic (a compound made artificially by chemical reactions;not of natural origin; prepared or made artificially) & Imitation ( copying (or trying to copy) the actions of someone/something else)
