Scaryfridgidairy

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Skair - ee - frid - gid - air - ee

Sentence: Roscoe had a scaryfridgidairy dream that because he had not cleaned out his refigerator in several weeks, the dairy products had all become scary mutated beings. In the dream, he opened the door and was assaulted by moldy green cheese curd men with icicle swords. The smelly odor of curdled milk assaulted him and he turned to see menacing clots seeping out of his fridge and growing into large sour pools of white goo that were attempting to trap him and stick him to the floor. Even his beloved vanilla mocha chiller had taken form and was glaring at him in a creepy way. Last but not least, the potato salad was encrusted with some type of scaly green substance that had become “armor” and the whole container had formed The First Salad Regiment of the Refrigerator Army ready to do battle….

Etymology: Scary (frightening, intimidating, scary) + Fridge (short for refrigerator) + Also Fridgid (play on work frigid which means cold).... The word then ends with Dairy (foods that contain milk products)

Devittles

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: Deh-viht-tills

Sentence: Off turned the light, and the nightly terror began for the as-yet-unexpired food. The nosferatuna slid stealthily into door hopper, where the condiments rested. A silent shadow, it sunk its celery fangs into the neck of the mayonnaise jar, gorging upon its salty fatty humors. Having turned, the zomayo lurched itself over its retaining wall and began to feast on the cauliflower, which it had mistaken in its saturated stupor for brains. A large sasquash ripped its way through the forest of broccoli and emerged upon a family of tomatoes, huddling in the corner of the produce crisper. A gout of seeded ichor sprayed across the front of the clear plastic drawer. Then, a hush fell through the refrigerator as the elder god of the cooler, Cthulhummus rose, an amorphous evil clad in finest shimmering Saran. Muffled screams issued from the magnetic seal around the door, but fell upon sleeping ears. Tonight the devittles reigned, and no food would go untainted.

Etymology: devil (or possibly deviant) + vittles

Salamonella

Created by: bananabender

Pronunciation: suh-LAHM-mun-el-uh

Sentence: It was hiding behind the egg carton festering technicolours, foul odours, and a plan of escape. "I'm not supposed to be in here" it thought, "I'm a hot salami and it's way too cold in here for me." It waited... and waited... and festered... and festered. She opened the door, light flooded the room, warm air rushed in like a breath of spring and it knew that this was the moment to seize the day! Salamonella was born and salamonella will reign supreme! Until the frankfurtenstein develops grandiose ideas, that is.

Etymology: salami + salmonella

Reanimunchies

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: ree-AN-ih-mun-cheese

Sentence: Charles Dexter Ward maintained a slovenly flat down near the river. His blasphemous experiments occupied most of his time, so he enlisted the services of a cleaning woman. One bleak December night he heard a scream from the kitchen above him. Dropping his ancient leather-bound volume of spells, Charles bounded up the rotten stairway to find Heidi's partial remains steaming on the pantry tiles like a heap of microwaved bratwurst. In a flash, Charles realized the awful truth: His poorly refrigerated leftovers had become REANIMUNCHIES and attacked the hired help in a way that made an open coffin for Heidi...unthinkable. The icebox door was ajar, and a greasy streak led out to the moors like the trail of an irradiated slug. Perhaps, with a little more work, his breakthrough in supernatural food preservation WAS possible, thought Charles as he tenderly slipped Heidi's remains, and her Swiffer, into the grey waters beside the pier.

Etymology: REANIMate+mUNCHIES=REANIMUNCHIES.......REANIMATE:To give new life to,To bring to life by scientific or mystical means.....MUNCHIES:light snack foods, sometimes exhibiting motion and reproductive capabilities.
