Pronunciation: CAR struck

Sentence: What an odd guy Tom is. First he just loved cars the way that a lot of young boys did. But soon it was more like an obsession. He had become completely carstruck. He took pictures of every new model that came out and pretty much wallpapered his room with them. Then it got even odder. He started to think like he was a car. He walked up to drive-throughs and ordered food, sat in a parking space at a drive-in movie, weaved in and out of traffic making honking noises and even worse...he started showering in his driveway.

Etymology: CAR: and STARSTRUCK: exhibiting a fascination with famous people

Pronunciation: fut - str - ong

Sentence: Murray was becoming too footstrong for his own good and others feared that he put himself in danger every day as he dared to go on foot where none would go before him... He crossed highways if there was not a better route, he walked through drive-thrus and today, he walked up to a toll-booth to get directions.

Etymology: A play on the expression "headstrong", instead foot + strong >> headstrong (Determined to do as one pleases, and not as others want) footstrong (determined to go places on foot that only vehicles should go) foot (travel by walking; "he followed on foot) strong (potent: having or wielding force or authority)


Wow! A foot trip and a head trip all rolled into one! Onederful! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-02: 10:34:00
