Stewage

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /styoo-ij/

Sentence: From the smell, Ron thought that the kitchen sink had backed up again, and he was making toward the closet with the plunger, when Bridget ran into him in the hall and said, "You do remember that my mother's coming over today, right? Oh, and I'm making lutefisk — it's a Swedish delicacy." We'd be having stewage for dinner tonight.

Etymology: Blend of 'stew' - to cook by simmering or slow boiling (Middle English, stewen "to bathe in a steam bath") & 'sewage' - liquid and solid waste carried off in sewers or drains (from Anglo-Fr. sewere "to drain off water")

Ewwchef

libertybelle

Created by: libertybelle

Pronunciation: eoooo- sheph

Sentence: Mark the ewwchef that he is, made us a cassarole made of chocolate bars and smoked oysters. Sure, i suppose both are aphrodisiacs, but the combination together is deplorable. At least it was a little better, though, than his kidney bean, pickle and horseradish salad. (the worst part is that i didn't make any of theose combinations up... they are real recipes that people in my family have tried to pass off...)

Etymology: sous chef - a culinary role of assistant to the executive chef + Eww - an exclaimation said when something is gross
