Crabbibeano

Created by: jrogan

Pronunciation: crab-bee-been-noh

Sentence: Xavier was a real crabbibeano, and he liked his coffee the way he saw the world -- hot, strong and bitter.

Etymology: crabby + bean + cappuccino

Apouthetic

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: a-pow-theh-tic

Sentence: Linda rarely got up from her seat at the local Sternbucks. Only her eyes moved from side to side, tracking the happy-if-not-jittery over-cafeinated customers who happily went on their way throughout the day, while her own esspresso double latte with skim milk and a sprig of cinnamon emptied from her cup more from evaporation than from actually being drunk. Her apouthetic stance contributed nothing to the world but an elbow worn spot on the table, a permanent scowl on her face, and snickering comments from regular customers who would often purposely tried to engage her in overtly cheery conversation to see how she would react.

Etymology: apathetic with pout embedded in it.
