Nutrabingo

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: new-tra-bing-o; new-tra-binj

Sentence: Hamish didn't know Nutrabingo was the latest fad in dieting. It made eating a game. Yes, a game! The player, or eater, could play solitarily or with others. The game involved gathering bits of nutrition of as many colors as possible on a base of pizza crust and licking them off. Extra points were given for foods of secondary colors. Points were lost if any of the crust was eaten. Whoever got full first yelled "Nutrabingo!" And everyone laughed which is good for digestion. You could laugh, too, even if you were eating alone. It was a complicated and ever-evolving game, but very rewarding as the pizza base could be used over and over again. Even so, Cerise couldn't blame Hamish--she had just found out about Nutrabinging herself. She loved the game almost as much as she loved playing Verbotomy.

Etymology: nutrabingo: noun, from a combination of nutrition + the game of Bingo; nutrabinge: verb, from a combination of nutrition and binge
