Smugstruggle

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: smug strug gill

Sentence: Nigel was always up for a smugstruggle. He was competitive to the point of nauseum. He'd cheat, connive and find a way to always win the argument and then rub everyone's nose in it. To prove himself right about dangerous butterknives, he cut off his finger with it. Many wished he had severed his tongue instead!

Winnebeego

Created by: bananabender

Pronunciation: win - uh - BEE - goh

Sentence: Alf, now friendless because of his winnebeego ways, is reduced to travelling the dusty roads of the outback in his Winnebago, all the while on his ultimate quest searching for the original black stump.

duhrections - apologies to zebrahdh but I just love that word! - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:41:00

Beyond the black stump is a favourite old Aussie saying. It basically means beyond the back blocks, far off in the backcountry, far from civilization. For the curious the history of the saying is in this link: http://www.abc.net.au/queensland/heritage/stories/s680695.htm - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:51:00

The Dog On The Tuckerbox is an Aussie icon. The statue is located at Gundagai in NSW. - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:57:00

Gliberation

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: glib-er-A-shun

Sentence: Monique knew that being right wasn't always worth the eye-rolling exasperation she induced in everyone around her when she belabored a point until all her would-be opponents had given up arguing. However, she did find the gliberation of those moments a little intoxicating, gliberating even.

Etymology: combination of glib and liberation, with the bonus of getting berate in there, too.
