Panpaltry

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: pan-PAL-tree

Sentence: Veejay was constantly amazed by modern technology. His three-minute egg timer only set him back $59.95 per month with a two year commitment. But it was SO much more than a communication device. It was a full-blown ringamajig, and he was proud of it. To Veejay his phone was a PANPALTRY without which his traditional lemon curry dishes would be impossible to prepare. It was a wondrously indispensable tool, a symbol of his upward mobility, and the world's only splatula which could download ringtones. Unfortunately, it left a metallic aftertaste in the falafels.

Etymology: PANtry+PAL+panTRY=PANPALTRY.....PANTRY:a room (as in a hotel or hospital) for preparation of foods on order;Middle English panetrie, from Anglo-French paneterie, from paneter servant in charge of the pantry, from pain bread, from Latin panis.....PAL:a close friend;Romany phral, phal brother, friend, from Sanskrit bhrātṛ brother; akin to Old English brōthor brother.

Utencell

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: yu ten sell

Sentence: Gary was the gadget guy. If it hadn't been already, he would invent it. Like his microwave TV,his food-word processor, his short-wave electric frypan, his blogblender, his curling-clothes iron and his toaster stereo. His latest multiappliance was a cell phone which could plan a menu, phone in a grocery delivery order, provide recipes and signal when to do what and for how long. He called it his Utencell. His girlfriend, Myra, wondered how long it would be before all these devices plotted to get rid of Gary, because they really did not need him, except to replace their batteries and plug them in. Yes, the Gadgetry Revolutionaries, the Widget Fondas, the Contraptionistas and the Political Apparatus were building up steam to end the Gizmo Gitmo in Gary's Kitchen!

Etymology: Utensil (an implement for practical use (especially in a household) & Cell (cellular telephone;a hand-held mobile radiotelephone for use in an area divided into small sections (cells), each with its own short-range transmitter/receiver)

Very funny: Makes me think of songs about food: Here's a "musical morsel" Can the Motorollingpin help this poor man? On top of spaghetti, All covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball, When somebody sneezed. It rolled off the table, And on to the floor, And then my poor meatball, Rolled out of the door. It rolled in the garden, And under a bush, And then my poor meatball, Was nothing but mush. The mush was as tasty As tasty could be, And then the next summer, It grew into a tree. The tree was all covered, All covered with moss, And on it grew meatballs, And tomato sauce. So if you eat spaghetti, All covered with cheese, Hold on to your meatball, Whenever you sneeze - OZZIEBOB, 2009-01-26: 16:55:00
