Crustfallen

Created by: astorey

Definition: n., That sad feeling you get when you open the pizza box, and there's nothing left but grease stains. v. intr., To sit in front of an empty pizza box and sulk.

Pronunciation: crust-fall-en

Sentence: Jeremy came in hungry after canvassing in nearby neighborhoods all morning. He was crustfallen when he went through not one, not two, not 17, but all 23 pizza boxes at the campaign volunteer center only to find some picked-off olives and crumpled-up napkins. So crustfallen was he that he stripped off his candidate flair and defected to the other candidate, who did not have as many volunteers but had way more pizza.

Etymology: Crestfallen: "Sad because of a recent disappointment" altered to incorporate crust, as in pizza crust.
