Clodastaire

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: KLOD-uh-stair

Sentence: Theirs was a marriage, thought Roxie, to last a lifetime. But a few seconds after they had started to dance the bridal waltz, she was beginning to have second thoughts. Despite months of professional lessons and hours of practice every evening, Bob danced like a robot in armour. It was for her a pyrrhic victory: she had won her man, but almost lost her feet in the process. He was certainly no Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly - possibly a Ned Kelly; in fact, she concluded, very quickly, that he was a clodastaire.

Etymology: CLOD & ASTAIRE a stupid and awkward person who, despite plenty of professional help and practice,and hopes one day to dance like Fred Astaire, contines to dance like a three legged giraffe. CLODHOPPERS:a clumsy oaf, large and clumsy feet.

Honkstrot

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: honks trot

Sentence: When Xander Gander entered the local dance contest, Dancing With The Scars, he lived up to his reputation as the worst dancer in town.

What should have been a fabulous foxtrot turned into a horrible honkstrot. The judges cried fowl. Xander had to fly south to escape the dishonor he had brought on the dance academy, Poultry in Motion.

Etymology: Honks (sound a goose makes) & Trot (a ballroom dance in quadruple time; combines short and long and fast and slow steps fixed sequences)

Poultrysamba

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: poll tree sam ba

Sentence: At the Gizzard's wedding, Vi was a bridesmaid and was forced to dance with the best man, the obnoxious Tom, who was drunk on Grey Goose Vodka. She was mortified when he dragged her up to do the Chicken Dance and everyone in the room stopped what they were doing to take a gander at his poultrysamba style of twerpsichore. He had no trouble getting "down" but he kept honking for Vi to get him back up. That's when he start calling her his little Viagra. When the seemingly endless dance mercifully was over, Tom goosed Vi and she in turn clipped his "wings". Of course, this was caught on video and is now all over the Web!

Etymology: Poultry (a domesticated gallinaceous bird though to be descended from the red jungle fowl) & Samba (a lively ballroom dance from Brazil) & Play on Paltry Sum (not worth considering)
