Good word and spot-on with the sentence. - ErWenn, 2008-02-19: 19:04:00

I really like the sound of this word. Question though: Your pronunciation (fakt-ser-dent) sounds like how someone from Long Island, New York would say it (adding 'r's). Was that intentional? - Tigger, 2008-02-19: 20:48:00

Meaculprit

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: me - ah - cul - prit

Sentence: "My lunch was in a white sack. It's missing from the fridge. Did you take it?" said Trudy. "It wasn't me! As you can see, I'm eating the yogurt, the apple, and the iced tea I brought. " Erica replied. Trudy took the last brown lunch sack, not white like hers, from the fridge. She opened it. As she set the yogurt, apple and iced tea on the table in front of Erica she said, "Oh, we brought the same lunch in different sacks! You did take my lunch! So now, I will take yours! When it comes to stealing lunches, we are both mea culprits!

Etymology: A blend of culprit and mea culpa. Culprit: which carries the double meaning of both an accused person and a guilty person. Mea Culpa: means "accepting guilt." And of course the admission of guilt in bad grammar "me a culprit!"

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

Neat word. While reading your sentence, a previous submission, from a few months ago, came to mind - Sandwicheroo. - Tigger, 2008-02-19: 13:04:00

since Trudy deliberately ate the wrong lunch I would say she's guilty of being the meamaximaculprit - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-19: 14:29:00

libertybelle great word! - libertybelle, 2008-02-19: 14:57:00
