Pronunciation: maowl-troo-ist

Sentence: Alan had never been all that interested in the news. He couldn't tell you what area of the country was buried under a blizzard, or who Larry Craig was. It was much more relaxing to listen to music or play Xbox when he got home from his 9 to 5, instead of having to read about the latest genocide. So when the hand ran along the underside of the stall separator at the rest area just before St. Louis on I-70, he reached for the extra roll to hand to the stranger in need. Accusations, handcuffs, and a court date later, Alan the maltruist would be forced to learn how men cruise for men in prison as well, when he helped that clumsy guy in the shower with the bar of soap he had dropped.

Etymology: mal - prefix meaning bad, altruist - someone devoted to the welfare of others


Punningly, stunningly clever story. Excellent verboticism, too! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-07: 09:44:00

Pronunciation: Mess Cat ology

Sentence: Leonard was a man of deeply held convictions. Through obsessively cleaning and ordering everything he sought to rid the world of chaos, and thus change and progress. Once everything was thusly (de)filed, his dreams would be realised: the end of civilisation as we know it! Tuesday presented Leonard with an opportunity. Penny, a kind hearted and gentile soul from across the hall had invited him for dinner. While the disorganised Penny unpacked her groceries, Leonard attempted to move one step closer to his goal by relieving Penny of Sheldon's litter box detritus. Sheldon however had agendas of his own, namely the detritus that had collected in Leonard's head. Feline hissery and chaos ensued, and instead of hitting the fan, the contents of Sheldon's litter box, along with Leonard, hit the floor. Later as Leonard wandered home he pondered the evenings events. The mission had been thwarted, but his will remained iron clad. He would reaffirm his faith and end his evening with another reading from the book of Messcatology.

Etymology: Eschatology - pertaining to bringing about the end of days, Biblical style. Mess - a disorderly state of affairs. Cat - the reference to the genus Felis Catus is (almost) entirely coincidental


But the reference to "The Big Bang Theory" was deliberate... - emdeejay, 2008-12-02: 03:46:00

Pronunciation: hell - per - skell - ter

Sentence: Lenny was beginning to feel all hellperskelter. Instead of experiencing the warm fuzzy feeling that should come with doing good deeds for his friends, he had been thrust into some type of helper hell where everything had gone awry. He gave his friend Bruce an opinion about a relationship issue last week which had led to his breakup with Ilene. Now, Jenny was calling him to inform him that he had killed her prize Yucca plant that he had done his best to care for when she was out of town on business.

Etymology: The word helper (someone who assists another or helps) is combined with Hell to form the first part of this word + skelter (from helter skelter) tumultuous disorder; confusion.


Great word. Great etymology - silveryaspen, 2008-12-02: 13:08:00
