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.

Morbitorbit

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mor bit or bit

Sentence: When Glak and Fribor entered Earth's atmosphere, they knew they were going into a morbitorbit. They had been to this planet, third from the Sun, before, but eons ago. When they saw it again, it was like viewing the rusted and decaying snagrom of a kleronbeen. A yellowy haze (not yet identified on their gastronomogeiger)hung over the sphere. Then they started giggling to themselves. "Jokes on you, Earthlings! You feel guilty, but really there is a sign near the Milky Way, pointing to Earth as a sanitary refuse and toxic dump for the Universe. All us aliens picked your planet because we could hide our trash in plain sight here! Your are not alone and the trash is out there!"

Etymology: Morbid (caused by or altered by or manifesting disease or pathology;suggesting the horror of death and decay; suggesting an unhealthy state) & Orbit (the (usually elliptical) path described by one celestial body in its revolution about another)

COMMENTS:

metrohumanx Glak and Fribor saw the snagrom- hope they don't induce a pogrom! - metrohumanx, 2009-04-22: 01:20:00
