Verboticism: Gocartons

Gocartons

Created by: silveryaspen

Definition: n. The creative, yet blatantly illegal use of plastic milk crates, and the latent fear of prosecution associated with this alleged crime. v. To create and build home furnishings using stolen milk crates.

Pronunciation: go cart ons

Sentence: Con Taynor filched milk crates from the supermarkrate where he unloaded delivery trucks. He fabricrated appealing boox cases from the stolen milk crates and sold them at bargain rates. However, Con did not get rich until he put a seat, wheels, and an engine on one of those plastic milk crates, and made them into gocartons!

Etymology: To FABRICATE from CRATES = FABRICRATE. BOOKS in BOXES = a BOOX case. GO-CART made from a milk CARTON = GOCARTON. --- It was hard not to make fabricrate the chosen verbotomy, but there were/are already enough with crate in the etymology, so I went with gocarton.
