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.


metrohumanx SPEEDBUMP: a low obstruction placed on a roadway to limit vehicular speed (1972).....Bumpkin:an awkward and unsophisticated rustic;perhaps from Dutch bommekijn small cask, from Middle Dutch, from bomme cask Date: 1570 :) - metrohumanx, 2009-03-02: 05:26:00

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
