Pedesastrian

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: ped es ass tri an

Sentence: She'd seldom seen pedesatrians bare-foot their way through the busy drive-thru (when the store front was nearly empty)! She tersely told him, "No barefoot pedesastrians in the drive thru lane"! Cars behind him honked. The man didn't seem to care. She reluctantly watched him proudly, mechanically, pad his feet onto the busy six-lane road, his soles black with car exhaust. This pedesastrian was even ignoring the red light! AHHHH!

Etymology: From the words pedestrian, ass and disaster. A person who unwisely or unknowingly, travels by foot on vehicle-only routes, often to disastrous consequences.

Peregrump

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PAIR-uh-GRUMP

Sentence: Unable to afford the most elementary form of wheeled transport and not having the skills needed to operate even a skateboard, Fritz nurtured a lifelong grudge against scooter pilots, cyclists and anyone flaunting their customized chromium wheelchairs. Rejected by the Rebels, Fritz had become a PEREGRUMP ever since he meandered down from the hills and across the highway. Asserting his pedestrian rights, he would often step arrogantly into the flow of traffic, protected only by his hundred-meter stare and imaginary aura of invincibility. Fritz had ample time to adjust his attitude as his mangled body recovered from an all-too-close encounter with an S.U.V. Now he's in traction, staring at the hospital ceiling as he mentally composes his Speedbumpkin Manifesto and creates verbotomisms with a pencil clutched between his teeth.

Etymology: PEREGrine+gRUMP=PEREGRUMP....PEREGRINE: having a tendency to wander, sometimes obliviously;Middle French peregrin, from Medieval Latin peregrinus, from Latin, foreign.....GRUMP:a person given to complaining,an act borne of ill humor or sulkiness, sometimes malicious.
