Parliamendacity

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: par lee a men dass it tee

Sentence: The Right Honodorable Member of Parliament for the riding of Stenchley-Stink Lake, Saskatcheeewwwan was Mr. Reek Ansmell. He displayed his dis-scent with his fellow MP's with his fuming rants about big business, kickbacks and pollution. He was the King of parliamendacity, as his riding had a pulp and paper mill, a large abbattoir and a sour gas plant running 24-7, in which he held shares. These smelly plants also accounted for the fact that he and his constituents had lost their olfactory senses and never knew how bad their B.O. was to the rest of the country!
