Craterape

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: CRATE rape

Sentence: I felt tricked into being involved in something vile. John, my roommate, had suggested that I carry my groceries home in a milk crate. “People do it all the time,” he had said. And he promised he would bring it back for me. But once we got home he got lazy about taking it back and instead decided to recreate the milk crate into a part of his new bookshelf. Feeling quite clever, he morphed it into something unrecognizable. His craterape was the last straw in our ongoing stressful existence under the same roof.

Etymology: CRATE + RAPE+ DATERAPE RAPE: to plunder (a place); despoil; to seize, take, or carry off by force

Gocartons

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: go cart ons

Sentence: Con Taynor filched milk crates from the supermarkrate where he unloaded delivery trucks. He fabricrated appealing boox cases from the stolen milk crates and sold them at bargain rates. However, Con did not get rich until he put a seat, wheels, and an engine on one of those plastic milk crates, and made them into gocartons!

Etymology: To FABRICATE from CRATES = FABRICRATE. BOOKS in BOXES = a BOOX case. GO-CART made from a milk CARTON = GOCARTON. --- It was hard not to make fabricrate the chosen verbotomy, but there were/are already enough with crate in the etymology, so I went with gocarton.
