Celltechristmas

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sel tek kris mas

Sentence: Poor Santa. Although he toiled all year to produce excellent toys for boys and girls, he had no facility to manufacture batteries. He relied on the Eveready Bunny to supply Moms & Dads & other gift givers with the right power to get those toys moving/talking/shooting/walking/crying/beeping/barking/wailing or lighting up Christmas Morning. It was becoming more of a Celltechristmas each year. Most times the Bunny could work the circuit, but some times it was hard to enduracell all those battery piles, like the current time. Sometimes he wanted to join DoubleAA because he thought he was becoming an alkalineoholic. Sometimes he just wanted to drop acid and at other times he had so many positive and negative forces in his life, that he was afraid he would be charged with assault and battery if he had to bang his drum once more! Santa being wise and observant told the Bunny that he would get the elves to help him and that after Christmas, the Bunny should take a long-overdue vacation, before his situation became terminal. When the Bunny argued, Santa said, anode for a while that you were over capacity...you need a rest. Resistance is futile...you are suffering from North Polar disease so go take your lithium, meditate somewhere warm by saying your "ohms" and recharge yourself!

Etymology: Celtic Christmas(relating to or characteristic of the Celts; although should be pronounced Keltic, most North Americans pronounce it Seltic); Cell (battery;a device that delivers an electric current as the result of a chemical reaction) & Tech (technical, applied sciences, especially mechanical, communication)

Celleighride

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sell ay ryde

Sentence: It was time for the annual Christmas Celleighride. It became evident when the carol singing slightly changed. They subtlely sang Watt Child Is This?; I'll be ohm for Christmas;etc. Their batteries were losing power and only a celleighride to the local 7-11, the only shop open on this day, to get AA, AAA, C, D cell batteries would do. Poor Nick, he needed recharged himself, but to keep the peace, he'd make the trip and drag his exhausted self through the winter's exhaust. Their annual celebration always became a cellebration. Joule have a Blue Christmas without them!

Etymology: Cell (a device that delivers an electric current as the result of a chemical reaction) & Sleigh Ride (Popular Christmas Song and activity outdoors) Seligh also rhymes with slay (to kill something, like a battery)' Joule (a unit of electrical energy equal to the work done when a current of one ampere passes through a resistance of one ohm for one second).
