Seatraction

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: seet/trak/shun

Etymology: seat + contraction

Interesting combo! - silveryaspen, 2008-01-29: 09:12:00

I first thought of your word as seat attraction which would make sense if the seat on either side got closer - great word - Jabberwocky, 2008-01-29: 13:28:00

good word! twelve hours in traction after the flight to straighten out the limbs would do the trick... but not with the 300 pounders as the weights! - bananabender, 2008-01-29: 22:21:00

John - Go by sea next time ! good word. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-01-30: 16:17:00

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: nhar-oh-byn-ded

Sentence: Zinnia liked to think of herself as open-minded but her commute to work, via public transport, had slowed changed her mind. Indeed, she was now so anxious of being narrowbinded that she would go to great lengths to assure a seat by herself. The fake dog stool she found at a gag shop was a good deterrent, but she left it on too many buses and was arousing suspicion among the drivers. She finally discovered that the best way to protect her person space from breech was to softly sing while eating canned tuna.

Etymology: narrow (small space) + binded (sic. secure by tying) play on "narrow minded"

Lunettetic

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: loon-net-tick

Sentence: As soon as the second obese man had settled to his right on the aisle, Roger noticed the seat in front of him. Down it crawled, inexorably lower with every passing second, wicking the sweat out of Roger, turning his hands clammy as the corpse he would inevitably become. His heart raced furiously as he calculated his escape, but it was too late; the plush polyester blade sat before him, adorned with a tacky 80s multi-color motif. So this is how it ended, huh, wedged between two Brandoesque men, a crazed lunettetic whose last meal was 5 stale pretzels.

Etymology: lunette - the portion of the guillotine that fixed the head in place, composed of two blocks each with semi-circular indentations + lunatic - an insane person

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Lunette describes Marie Antoinette ... so perfectly, your word we aren't likely to forget! Very interesting! - silveryaspen, 2008-01-29: 09:35:00

fantastic paragraph - Jabberwocky, 2008-01-29: 10:43:00

great sentence! Your word and sentence captures the essence of the definition so well. - bananabender, 2008-01-29: 18:46:00

Ampak

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ampak

Sentence: As Monday morning approaches Jason dreads his trip on the Ampak commuter train. Never one to enjoy crowds, this rolling sardine can is no fun.
