Now, how can I put a spin-nachurely, and preserve our green peace, Oh, help me a-spare-agus from a rude-a-bega, please. "Dear Peter, my friend, two-mate-toes, we can never be ... for in me, all that sprouts ... is a rosyred comradish for thee."

Declarashun

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: deck-lair-ay-shun

Sentence: The scene was set--cozy table in the back of a nice restaurant, a nice bottle of wine, me looking good in my favorite red shift from Ann Taylor Loft (Ok, it was the outlet, but it looked full-price). Just after our dinner plates were cleared, my date looked into my eyes with that moo-ey look that signifies trouble when it comes from the wrong person. I became intensely interested in the dessert menu. He placed his hand on mine and said, "Kate, I have to tell you. I love--" "Creme brulee?" I said a little too loud and too fast. "Me too! Should we split one or get two? Let's get two. I am not ready to share dessert with you yet." Then I focused all my attention on flagging down the waiter to avoid the declarashun that was headed my way. Dang. I should have worn the Old Navy jean skirt instead.

Etymology: Declaration: a statement that is emphatic and explicit changed to include Shun: avoid and stay away from deliberately; stay clear of
