Vehikele

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: vēhīkəl

Sentence: G.P. loves to hike, but not like most people. He likes to hike on highways. He is a regular no-motor vehikele. He feels he has as much right to be there as the next guy, maybe more. Sure his tax dollars have helped pay for the roads but the tickets and fines he has paid for his hobby should certainly count for something. They should also put him at the front of the "I don't learn too quick" line.

Etymology: vehicle (a thing used for transporting people or goods, esp. on land, such as a car, truck, or cart) + hike (a long walk, esp. in the country or wilderness)

Peregrump

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PAIR-uh-GRUMP

Sentence: Unable to afford the most elementary form of wheeled transport and not having the skills needed to operate even a skateboard, Fritz nurtured a lifelong grudge against scooter pilots, cyclists and anyone flaunting their customized chromium wheelchairs. Rejected by the Rebels, Fritz had become a PEREGRUMP ever since he meandered down from the hills and across the highway. Asserting his pedestrian rights, he would often step arrogantly into the flow of traffic, protected only by his hundred-meter stare and imaginary aura of invincibility. Fritz had ample time to adjust his attitude as his mangled body recovered from an all-too-close encounter with an S.U.V. Now he's in traction, staring at the hospital ceiling as he mentally composes his Speedbumpkin Manifesto and creates verbotomisms with a pencil clutched between his teeth.

Etymology: PEREGrine+gRUMP=PEREGRUMP....PEREGRINE: having a tendency to wander, sometimes obliviously;Middle French peregrin, from Medieval Latin peregrinus, from Latin, foreign.....GRUMP:a person given to complaining,an act borne of ill humor or sulkiness, sometimes malicious.
