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)

Carstruck

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: CAR struck

Sentence: What an odd guy Tom is. First he just loved cars the way that a lot of young boys did. But soon it was more like an obsession. He had become completely carstruck. He took pictures of every new model that came out and pretty much wallpapered his room with them. Then it got even odder. He started to think like he was a car. He walked up to drive-throughs and ordered food, sat in a parking space at a drive-in movie, weaved in and out of traffic making honking noises and even worse...he started showering in his driveway.

Etymology: CAR: and STARSTRUCK: exhibiting a fascination with famous people
