Pronunciation: NECK-roe-FISS-kull-LEM-inged (necrofiscalemmingism)

Sentence: CHICO was in a pan ic! Having scratched out a meager living as a purveyor of free-range ostriches, he foolishly sank his savings into commodities futures.(mostly corn) CHICO watched TV with a glazed eye as the balding maniacal mavens predicted an armageddon of monetary loss. CHICO was already financially beheaded, but he decided to warn his comrades by pecking out text messages as fast as possible. Wattle his friends think of him now that his amateur advice had caused their demise? He foolishly mailed his heirloom gold to an anonymous huckster, and the pittance he received stuck in his craw. CHICO wasn't steeped in investment strategies, so decided to wing it, dumping all his assets for pennies on the dollar! When the markets turned around, he realized he'd been NECROFISCALEMMINGED, and he'd been the victim of a fowl plot. As the turkeys flocked to re-invest, CHICO became sadly fatalistic. "Oh well-" He thought... "Here today, guano tomorrow"!

Etymology: NECROs+FISCAl+LEMMING(ed)=NECROFISCALEMMINGED.....NECRO:Fron the Greek NECROS(dead body.....FISCAL:of or relating to taxation, public revenues, or public debt,Latin fiscalis, from fiscus basket, treasury (1563).....LEMMING:any of various small short-tailed furry-footed rodents of circumpolar distribution that are notable for population fluctuations and recurrent mysterious mass migrations.
