Oddballimia

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: od bal EE mee ah

Sentence: Candy can't understand why she can't lose weight. She scrupulously avoids starches after 5:00 pm ("it turns right to fat"). She always carefully counts her daily calories. She eats lots of celery ("it takes more calories to digest it than it has in it, so that's negative calories"). She also eats a lot of spicy foods too ("that revs your metabolism and burns more calories"). Of course, drinks don't really count because they are mostly water; the same goes for soup. And everyone knows that the bites you take while you're cooking, to "taste test" the food, don't count. She does eat whatever is left on her kids' plates, but those calories don't count either because she eats standing up.

Etymology: oddball + bulimia

Lickosuction

Created by: galwaywegian

Pronunciation: lik o suk shun

Sentence: Her Catholic upbringing had programmed her to believe that acts were only sinful when you took pleasure in them, so she applied the same logic to eating, figuring that you wouldn't get fat if you didn't enjoy the food. Her lickosuction technique unfortunately had the opposite effect, as it didn't involve chewing, which was the only calorie burning part of the process.

Etymology: liposuction, lick, suction

Timothy should get together with Galwaywegian's character - sort of a Jack Sprat scenario - they'd chew and lick the platter clean - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-20: 09:07:00

Timothy could masticate And Gal could lick and suck And so betwixt the two of them The lunch was out of luck - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-20: 11:29:00

Timothy could eat a cake, and Gal could lick the bowl. But neither did so modestly. They had no self-control. - Clayton, 2007-06-20: 17:19:00

petaj Timothy could chew like mad, and Gal would snort it up. Chomp, grind, smack, slurp, lick, sip, sup. - petaj, 2007-06-20: 23:29:00
