Ostraponicaw

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: oss-trip-ONIC-awww

Sentence: Herb really loved Lilly, but he only tolerated her infatuation with plants. Lilly had a necrarium in the living room in which nothing greater than fungi would grow. In the kitchen, spiderplants threatened Herb's every move. Forest litter and detritus was accumulating under the end tables. Herb, not being especially gifted at conflict resolution, decided to convert one houseplant each night into an OSTRAPONICAW. He gave secret thanks to the Frost Giants who visited the doorstep and turned each rare succulent into a slimy mass of burst cells which no plant food spike could ever hope to revive. Poor Lilly. AWWWWWWWWWWW

Etymology: OSTRAcise+hydroPONIC+AWWWW= OSTRAPONICAW .....OSTRACISE:a method of temporary banishment without trial or special accusation ; exclusion by general consent from common privileges or social acceptance.....HYDROPONICS:the growing, however unsucessfully, of plants in nutrient solutions without an inert medium (as soil) to provide mechanical support.....AWWW: 21st century exclamation intended to express dismay or mock sympathy, often uttered at the demise of an unloved decorative companion.

metrohumanx OSTRAPONICS: The Not growing of plants on any viable medium. Plants which thrive on abuse are particularly suited to this merhod of floracide. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-13: 01:42:00

how cruel - Jabberwocky, 2008-10-13: 14:08:00

metrohumanx Now that i look at OSTRAPONICAW, it sounds like an endangered sub-tropical bird. Oh well- there are no provisions for "taking back" a word, i guess. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-14: 02:51:00
