Suctioenable

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: Suck-shi-en-ay-bull

Sentence: The process of suctioenabling the vacuum as it missed toenail, after finger, after earlobe was not the most efficient method for Roger to dispose of his ex-wife's body, but it certainly was entertaining. He picked up several teeth and dropped them in front of the upright, grinning Cheshire as they rattled into the dust trap.

Etymology: suction + enable

Do you write horror films in your spare time? Great sentence but a little creepy. - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-04: 08:43:00

Haha, no I don't write much other than these verbotomy nanostories. I've been hitting the blood and guts a bit heavy as of late, haven't I? - Banky, 2008-04-04: 10:05:00

that's okay - your writing is great no matter the genre - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-04: 12:14:00

Yeah, Banky's mini-stories are good stuff. The sick, twisted and gory kind of good... - Tigger, 2008-04-04: 16:21:00

Eurekagain

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: yoŏrēkəgen

If her sad old vacuum isn’t able to pick up a lump of dust, she has been known to give them the Eurekagain treatment, running over and over these fuzzy little critters usually with less-than-wonderful results. She may even get down on her hands and knees to break up dustballs to make them easier to deal with.

Etymology: eureka (A brand of vaccuum)(a cry of joy or satisfaction when one finds or discovers something) + again (another time; once more)
