Pigmentstyinthesky

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: PIG ment STY in the SKY

Sentence: My father was an avid bird watcher and an environmentalist. In spite of that he believed in science and technology and that they could make all our dreams come true; and we could have the best of everything that new discoveries and inventions could give us as well as preservation of the environment. As I look now up into the trees filled with garbage, far above a landscape decorated with the brightly coloured advertisement slogans of days gone by, they remind me of the vast array of bright coloured birds I once stood watching in awe. Now those bright colours make me think that my father’s pie in the sky dreams have become pigmentstyinthesky.

Etymology: PIE IN THE SKY + PIGMENT + PIGSTY: PIE IN THE SKY:a phrase that means a fanciful notion or ludicrous concept PIGMENT:Particles that are made of various natural and synthetic substances used to add color to solutions such as ink or paint PIGSTY: Slang A dirty or very untidy place

Jetsamstream

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: jetsəmstrēm

Sentence: Roy was amazed at the array of polytinsel that had been deposited overnight by the jetsamstream. He recognized the logos of some of his favorite shops and brands.

If only they could stay this fresh and colorful but time and exposure to sunlight would soon alter his almost-decorative trees and bushes to debritrees and trashrubs.

Etymology: jetsam (unwanted material or goods that have been thrown overboard from a ship and washed ashore) + jetstream (a narrow, variable band of very strong, predominantly westerly air currents encircling the globe several miles above the earth)
