Pronunciation: rome/nee/no

Sentence: Juliet's father was a real romekneeno. Everytime an errant hand slid past her knee, he chopped it off.

Etymology: romeo + rome + knee + no


Every word in your etymology is so well chosen ... with romeo and knee topping the other two. Knees can be a turn on ... but alas ... they can also be a painful turn-off ... incorporating it into your verbot makes it so powerful! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-13: 13:21:00

Pronunciation: auto - e - rot - a - stop

Sentence: Six weeks had passed since the arrival of the new baby and Aaron and Kelly were feeling up to an attempt at romance. The baby was recently fed, dry and sleeping peacefully. Aaron leaned in for a much needed inaugural kiss and just before his lips met Kelly's, the baby squawked. Aaron pulled away and held his breath. The crying stopped. Kelly waved him in for a second try and again the baby screamed, only louder. This time the baby could not be stopped. She screamed like a fire alarm for an hour. The exhausted parents consulted the owner's manual and discovered that their bundle of joy had come equipped with the often standard AUTOEROTISTOP alarm. This option was apparently not refundable.

Etymology: auto + erotica + stop


Out-of-gas-stop! Being stationary ... stopped at the station ... unable to move! Evokes so many images ... Wonderful Creation! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-13: 13:18:00

Hmmm... sounds like a poor design, but then again, it never runs out of gas, does it? - Tigger, 2008-02-14: 00:48:00

Pronunciation: dôtərkoōlər

Sentence: Denise strongly encouraged her daughter Cindy to entertain her boyfriend at home. She would give them full use of the family room while she and Jim (Dad) would keep themselves busy in the kitchen. But Mom was a terrific daughtercooler. She would NEED the punch bowl or grill set from a closet at just the right moment to put a nyet blanket on any nefarious activities. Just a cough or clearing of the throat from the other room could send chills down Cindy's spine. On more than one occasion, Cindy searched the family room looking for a hidden video cam. In the end she decided that Mom must be psychic.

Etymology: Daughter (female offspring) cooler (a device or container for keeping things cool)

Pronunciation: third - wheel- er

Sentence: Gordon snaked his arm along the back of the lounge and looked longingly into Miranda's eyes. But only for a fleeting second!

Etymology: third wheel (one who deters the couple's activities - just by being there) + Rottweiler (a breed of dog often used for guard dogs)

Pronunciation: /LUST-bus-ter/

Sentence: Nothing could spoil the mood like Andrea's dog, Fang. Like a true 'lustbuster' he had an uncanny ability to sense a sexual advance coming on — Todd didn't even have to make a move toward her — all he had to do was just think about putting an arm around Andrea, and the flea-bitten cur would lift his head and start snarling at him.

Etymology: lust - intense sexual desire or appetite (Old Norse, lyst "desire") + buster - a person who breaks up something (Origin: 1825–35, Americanism; bust & -er)


lol! Excellent choice of words Tigger. :) - Dougalistic, 2008-02-13: 04:40:00

Simple but effective. - ErWenn, 2008-02-13: 10:13:00

Haven't we seen this before for a different definition? It's so good, twice is nice! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-13: 13:04:00

Nice word. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-13: 17:06:00

Doggone, Todd! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-13: 19:36:00

I didn't recall it being used here before silveryaspen, but if it was I apologize. I was thinking of rhyming the word 'lust' and 'bust' and thought it kinda sounded like 'dustbuster'. - Tigger, 2008-02-14: 00:30:00

Apologies to Stevenson0 — he submitted 'Lustbust' for a similar definition in January. It must've been stuck in the back of my head... it was such a good word. - Tigger, 2008-02-21: 02:20:00
