Contagearthed

Created by: abrakadeborah

Pronunciation: con-tage-urth-d

Sentence: George and Jane Jetson were out in the aerocar for their usual Sunday planet fly around...as Rosie kept a watchful eye on Elroy and Judy back home in Mars. The Jetson's got closer to planet earth as George and Jane gasped and became "contagearthed" at the terrible shape the earth had turned into! George quickly pressed the red reverse zoom button on the aerocar to head back to Mars, in fear that the "contagearthed" particles may attach to the transparent top of the aerocar and make them all sick! Jane screamed," HURRY George, I think we just got hit by asteroid that chipped the transparent top and we might be breathing that stuff in!" The family dog Astro in the back seat looked up quickly then laid back down barking,"Ruh-roh-Ruh-roh!" George and Jane were relieved they had been forced to relocate to Mars by George's grouchy ol' boss Mr. Cosmo Spacely (owner of the company Spacely Space Sprockets) Maybe, he wasn't so mean after all...seeing the terrible mess that the earth had been turned into by the humanoids!

Etymology: Contag:Taken from first part of contagion;meaning:Disease transmission by direct or indirect contact. Earth:The land surface of the world...added ED to Earth to show also the meaning of Earthed> Earthed:To cover or heap.

Flumoon

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: flu + moon

Sentence: Man has walked on the moon but he has walked on the earth for more years and has taken many more steps there. If we were to inhabit the moon, our blue moon, our paper moon, our man in the moon, our moonglow, our new moon would all become just a flumoon....we would probably manage to infect it with the same maladies with which we have infected the planet we inhabit....

Etymology: flu (short for influenza;Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease) and moon (one of the seven major bodies which move relative to the fixed stars in the night sky—the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

Flu...ooo...moon, I saw you standing alone...without a dream in your heart...without a love of your own." Song of the Day, dedicated to Silveryaspen! - readerwriter, 2009-04-22: 10:47:00

Enjoyed your sentence, mweinmann - well crafted. - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:18:00

Silvery Moon is more fitting as a song for me, readerwriter. 'Sail along silvery moon, sail along lovers' lane, sail along silvery moon, to my love again!" There's another old verse about the moon I like "Oh, the moon shines east and the moon shines west, but I like the moonshine they make next door best!" - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:22:00

Geodorous

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: gee-oh-dohr-us

Sentence: The planet below had always looked so peaceful from their own planet. They had been studying it for eons. They hoped it was hollow and contained the crystals they needed for energy. If an Earthperson had been able to see them, they would have thought the bulbous protubrances on the heads of Dork and Fork were eyes, but they were not: they were nostrils. And, oh, what a stench Dork and Fork inhaled as they drew closer to Earth's atmosphere. It was negatively geodorous! They would have to turn around. What had happened since the last time they had visited in 6,000BC when there were very few Earthpeople to be seen? Dork and Fork were convinced it was the Earthpeople's heads that were really hollow. But, perhaps, the stench was only a geocentrick by Earth people? As soon as they arrived home they would have geophysickals to make sure they were fine.

Etymology: using GEODE, meaning a hollow spheroidal rock filled with crystals + ODOROUS, meaning the quality of stimulating the sense of smell

Influmenza

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: in flu men zah

Sentence: The total world population, per the 2008 estimate by the United States Census International Programs Center is 6,679,493,900. As of February 2009, the world's population is estimated to be about 6.76 billion. Overcrowding and people pollutions are wreakening our planet. Terra caught a influmenza and is in a dangerous state of flux.

Etymology: INFLUENZA, MEN. Men - in the broader sense of the word, is often used to mean all people. Influenza - a widespread illness. Ergo: If the world has caught a wide spread illness from too many men, it suffers influmenza. /// Wreakening is a verbotomy of wreak and weakening. /// The last word flux, means not only a state of constant change, but archaically was a term for severe diarrhea ... something mankind needs to stop inflicting on our planet.

Homocreatoxic

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: ho-mo-crea-toxic

Sentence: The guide pointed out the window and announced to the group of tourists, "This is an example of a homocreatoxic planet." Sadly, it is systematically being destroyed by the dominant species who either does not recognize or isn't concerned by the signs of impending demise. This is the only planet we've seen thus far that has come to this particular form of extinction. Anthropologists say that it once was like a garden with fields, mountains, oceans and millions of diverse creatures. This is as close as we can get to the planet without risking contagion. Now, let's move on to Saturn's exquisite rings..."

Etymology: Homo: (Latin) man/mankind + Creation: (creationism)the world as it was created by a creator + Toxic: poisonous, often by chemical means
