Cultasy

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: cul/tas/ee

Sentence: See 'Comments' below - My cultasy requires that I chant each morning and it distracted me and I put my sentence in the 'Comments' box. Please forgive me and may all the earthbound X-rays find your path today and lead you to freedom, purity and adventure.

Etymology: cult + fantasy

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Jimmy and Jenny met at a 'X-Men' conference in New York last year. What they love most about their cultasy are the costumes and the chants recited three times a day in hopes that they will come in contact natural earth bound x-rays which will transform them like their heros. - Stevenson0, 2007-06-19: 07:56:00

My cultasy would be travelling in the Tardis. It would be great for holidays and shopping and you'd never have to worry about parking - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:26:00

Or making phone calls. - Clayton, 2007-06-19: 12:30:00

You _could_ take the Tardis shopping, though the driver would probably drop you off a few decades either too early or too late. Depending on what you want to buy, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. Showing up 10 years late to buy a Wii: good. Showing up 10 years late to buy a limited-edition Pokemon card: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a personal computer: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a passenger pigeon: good. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:57:00

You'd also probably have to save the lives, livelihoods, and/or rights of anyone who didn't die immediately upon your arrival, but that's a small price to pay, isn't it? - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:58:00

Fanchise

Created by: Filthy

Pronunciation:

Sentence: Lloyd should have known that the Toxic Avenger had reached fanchise status when Troma fans errected a statue of Toxie in Lloyd's front yard and began a re-enactment of the final scene to the first film, complete with cascading intestines.

Etymology: There is disagreement on the origins of this word. Basically an altered spelling of 'franchise,' the term 'fanchise' may have it's other roots in either 'fan' (an ardent admirer or enthusiast) or the more extreme 'fanatic' (excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion). Most scholars have settled on the latter, citing the common conflation of religious fervor and fanaticism in American culture.

COMMENTS:

once again - a great sentence - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:53:00

it could have been better, but i was pressed for time with a project here... - jadenguy, 2007-06-19: 12:29:00

And for his next feat, jadenguy went on to prove that black is white and white is black before getting run over at the next zebra crossing. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:00:00

Having read THHGttG as a kid in the U.S., it took me several years before I realized that a "zebra crossing" was the same thing as a crosswalk. I also thought that Arthur Dent had been forced to wander into the basement of the planning office carrying a fire-burning "torch" as opposed to an electric one (a flashlight). - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:03:00
