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

Graveneworld

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: grave new world

Sentence: Capitalizing on their own freedoms, the earth’s inhabitants forgot to take care of their earth: her ground, air and water. The Graveneworld, as she came to be, suffered an imbalance which made her earth feverishly warm in areas and in other areas, cruelly cold or stormy. Oceans of earth were infected with their oil spills, chemicals, nuclear stubs. Earth’s inhabitants needed to take better care of her.

Etymology: GRAVE (destructive) NEW World: gets its meaning from some ideas in A. Huxley's Brave New World, such as the destructive effects of some "progress" like industrialization on nature.

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

Never thought about earth as being part of Universe-alley. Your sentence truly makes us realate to the definition in a Bigger Way! All parts of your verbotomy are so great, they are Out Of This World! - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 01:56:00

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.
