Follachele

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: FALL ake ul

Trichotrauma

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: trick-o-traw-ma

Sentence: It was a cold Halloween and the neighbourhood was filled with the joyful sound of families laughing and enjoying themselves. Suddenly a horrendous screech filled the night and an eerie silence descended on the revellers. Was it a spirit raised from the dead, was it an escaped pet cockatoo, was it Aunty Em practising her singing? No. It was a hairy legged Dad who had banned his children from trick or treating. In revenge his darling children had ripped duct tape from his knee, to see him suffer from trichotrauma. "Faaaaaghlicle" he screamed as the second piece was stripped off.

Etymology: tricho (hair) + trauma (injury)
