Omegalomaniac

GlobalGallery

Created by: GlobalGallery

Pronunciation: ow-meega-low-may-nee-ack

Sentence: "Their father won Best in Show at Crufts", said Carter with an air of arrogance. He pulled firmly on their leads but his treasured hounds ignored him and continued to sniff the Labrador's butt. Carter's overblown ego made him think he was top dog, but really he was just an omegalomaniac. The dogs ignored him unless he was at the grill cooking, sausages for himself, and rib-eye steaks for them.

Etymology: 1. omega - the last letter of the Greek alphabet. (as opposed to alpha male/dog which is the first). 2. megalomaniac - a pathalogical egoist.

Wounddog

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: wow und dawg

Sentence: Elvis took his hound for a walk. But the hound didn't like being held back by his leash, so he raced in circles around Elvis, coiling, looping, twisting, spiraling, and curling the leash around Elvis' legs and ankles, even his blue suede shoes. Elvis sang out in misery as he tripped and tumbled down: "You aint nothin but a wounddog, Now I'm cryin all the time. Making me nothin but a bound ground hog, Cryin all the time. Well, you aint never caught a rabbit And you aint no friend of mine."

Etymology: Wound Dog is a play on Hound Dog. There is a way to correct the spelling of the word! After clicking on edit beneath save and go back is "oops! I want to change the spelling of my word" and with a click on that ... voila!
