Genieatall

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: jee nee at all

Sentence: Norbert was one smart, shy dude, but the ladies viewed him as a geek. One day he found a brass lamp and imagining himself to be Alladin, he rubbed it. A big blue genie floated out of the lamp and told Norbert he could have 3 wishes. Norbert's first wish was to look handsome, but have dark curly hair. Poof he got his wish. His second request was to be able to sing well and play the guitar...Poof, he became musical! His third wish was to have a sense of humour, so that he could talk to the ladies. Poof, he developed a ribald, ascerbic wit! He was so delighted that he went up to the first gorgeous girl he saw and started chatting her up. She reeled back in horror and said, "You're Weird Al Yankovic and you are way too old for me!" Norbert picked up the now vacant lamp and cursed it! "You're no genieatall and why are those Candid Camera people following me?"

Etymology: Genie (a spirit who lives in a lamp. The one who finds it rubs the lamp and gets 3 wishes, before the spirit can be freed from the lamp.) & At All (in the slightest degree or in any respect) Also wordplay on genital (of the sex organs) to which many wishes allude...

Dayscreaming

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: dāskrēming

Sentence: His mother always told him, \"be careful what you wish for\" and now he knew why. Ever since he had taken up boxing to get in shape Sidney would daydream about being good enough to go pro. Now, sitting in the ring across from the champ, his daydreaming had turned into dayscreaming. It was a full-fledged daymare. Sure, it was just a charity exhibition match but the look in the champ\'s eyes when Sidney teased him about his pink trunks left him hoping that his teeth were well anchored.

Etymology: daydreaming (a series of pleasant thoughts that distract one\'s attention from the present) + screaming (give a long, loud, piercing cry or cries expressing excitement, great emotion, or pain)
