Pronunciation: TEL-uh-bahy

Sentence: Bob didn't smell a rat, when Roxie's phone rang and she told him that she had to break their date and leave immediately, in order to return to her post at the local hospital and care for a patient suffering from bromhidrosis. It was a clever telibi, hatched together with her girlfriend, in case of an emergency, for in the end all they finished up doing was going to a theatre and watching "Lord of the Rings."

Etymology: Blend of TEL of telephone & LIBI of alibi, with a homophonic suggestion of bi, bi of goodbye. Alibi: an excuse, esp. to avoid blame or to use to find one's way out of trouble, work etc.

Amourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: a moor jen see

Sentence: Muriel thought there really ought to be a law against the lies people said about themselves over the Internet. Like her date tonight. He said his name was Mel Gibson (and that picture of a younger Mel Gibson on his site was really misleading). It turns out his name was Smell Gibson and that was the name his biker gang had given him. There were other clues: he was single (because his wife had kicked him out); had a career (as a criminal); financially secure (since his pogey had kicked in); loved home cooking (as opposed to prison food);liked to go for long walks (since he'd lost his license);loved children (had several in various cities);and seeking female companionship (by the hour). Muriel had arranged for an amourgency phone call from her best friend Lisa if this meeting turned out to be disastrous. Come on Lisa, hurry up and make the darn call...before Muriel's picture ended up on a milk carton!

Etymology: amour (love; a secret or illicit relationship) & emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)
