Mumsense

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: MUM-sense

Sentence: I know mummy won't be happy with my verboticism, but "mumsense" does at least sound respectable - although, I hope she doesn't pick up the connatation of nonsense. I thought about "mumifesto," but it has a "red" ring about it.(Mummy burnt daddy's socialist literature in the early 1950s, thinking that god-fearing man, McCarthy, was about to arrive in Australia). "Matrimatum," certainly not - she wouldn't like it; "Mama Sutra" - we don't talk about that sort of thing in our family, and I'd better forget about "Nuture-hurture": she thinks rythming words are ever so incredibly silly. I'd better stop verbotomizing right now, for the word "matrinark" keeps coming into my head.

Etymology: MUM & SENSE with connatation of nonsense.
