Egomotortist

Pronunciation: ee-goh-moh-tawr-tist

Sentence: It was ten minutes to close at the only store in town when my baby's mama held up the last diaper in the house and announced that junior had suddenly developed an explosive case of diarrhea.

For the rest of the night I wished that junior could have spent just one minute in that guy's car.

Lanepain

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: layn payn

Sentence: It never failed, thought Mario, just when I am in a hurray, I get stuck behind some lanepain. He feels that it is his duty to observe the posted limit, even though he is the only one in traffic to do so. You never see him when you are not in a hurray yourself...just when you need to get somewhere really quickly. Well, if this slug didn't move over soon, Mario knew he would have to take desperate action, even if he had to drive right over his car. Afterall, he was not going to be lanepained on this first lap and lose the entire Indy 500!

Etymology: lane (a way or road or a well-defined track or path,like in traffic) & pain (emotional distress; a fundamental feeling that people try to avoid or something or someone that causes trouble; a source of unhappiness or to cause emotional anguish or make miserable)
