Cursuccumbungler

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: cur-suck-come-BUNG-lerr (cursuccumbungled) (rhymes with capsicum-dungled)

Sentence: Gordius was making a fine living from his new enterprise... walking canine-americans for a small fee. But Gordy's initial success unleashed his greed, and he soon realized that he'd bit off more than he could chew. Walking several out-of-control dogs ensnaggled him in a rat's nest of leashes and curses. Gordius had become a CURSUCCUMBUNGLER- He meekly surrendered to the primal instincts of the alpha dog, and was last seen participating in an involuntary tour of all the fire hydrants and poo piles in the sleeply little hamlet of Baskerville.

Etymology: CUR(curse)+SUCCUMb+BUNGLER=CURSUCCUMBUNGLER......CUR:a mongrel or inferior dog,Middle English, short for curdogge, from Middle English *curren to growl (perhaps from Old Norse kurra to grumble) + Middle English dogge dog.....CURSE:a prayer or invocation for harm or injury to come upon one,a cause of great harm or misfortune,evil or misfortune that comes as if in response to imprecation or as retribution; Middle English curs, from Old English.....SUCCUMB:to yield to superior strength or force or overpowering force,to be brought to an end (as death) by the effect of superior forces;French & Latin; French succomber, from Latin succumbere, from sub- + -cumbere to lie down; akin to Latin cubare to lie.....BUNGLER: One who blunders or acts ineptly in an incompetent manner,One who proceeds unsteadily; alteration of bungle, perhaps of Scandinavian origin; akin to Icelandic banga to hammer.

Leashlash

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: LEASH lash

Sentence: The imprudence of having four dogs dawned on Susie when she was left alone early one morning to walk the dogs. She could have taken each one out separately, but instead boldly harnessed each dog onto a separate leash. Susie closed the door and they were off! They veered left, then suddenly ran circles every which way, giving Susie leashlashes to her ankles. OOOuch! The four dogs hopped and jumped, entagled in their knot of leashes. Susie let go of all the leashes and mouthed a swear word. The dogs struggled in a tangle so she managed to unclip the four leashes. The dogs continued to walk gracefully up the street.

Etymology: Leashlash n or v. From: leash, to keep on a cord; and lash, the action of whipping back, out or at someone.
