Marrage

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: mer/rage

Sentence: On finding her new husband and the maid of honour, she went into a state of marrage throwing and breaking everything she could get her hands on.

Etymology: marriage + rage

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

I considered something similar to this before deciding it didn't really allude to the sheets or the cheats as well as other words might. Marrage, to the casual observer, may as well be a nondescript form of anger directed at one's spouse (to be). It lacks specifics. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 08:00:00

Great word, simple and succinct - you just have to stress the second syllable to get the full effect - try it - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 09:55:00

That's nice (^^), but ditto my previous comment regarding it being too generalised for the definition, and that it makes the assumption that the mental state induced would be one of anger, as opposed to shock, disappointment, disbelief etc. For me, assigning rage as the sole emotion here is myopic. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 11:23:00

methinks we have a psychiatrist in our midst - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 12:19:00

No, just a fool who's seen too many shrinks in his time. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 15:31:00

Certainly not a fool - good sense of humour though - Jabberwocky, 2007-03-27: 19:54:00

Somethinblue

Created by: Bulletchewer

Pronunciation: Sum-thin-bloo

Sentence: She went somethinblue, a rage beyond red, an envy exceeding green, pure despair, having found the rat and his cat christening the most thoughtful gift. (my word that's pretentious nonsense)

Etymology: From the tradition that a bride wears something old, new, borrowed and blue. Also based on the idea that "blue" denotes both sexual behaviour and sadness. Note also "thin" (as opposed to "thing") as describing the sheets.

Very colourful. Especially "the rat and his cat", wearing her white dress I imagine... - wordmeister, 2007-03-27: 06:53:00

Bridalpathology

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bry dal path ol ogee

Sentence: It was a nightmare when Marey found her Groom Ed in bed with her bridesmaid, Fillymena...On the satin sheets that she had begat from her Grandmare, Mustang Sally, of all places and she did not like it one bit! She yelled until she was a little hoarse, okay, just a Quarterhoarse! She experienced Bridalpathology and found a need to harness her mane anxiety and buck the trend to overlook such horseplay. Of course, she knew that Ed had to sew his wild oats, the stud, but really...wasn't he more stable than that after becoming hitched? Spurred by the thoughts of a lengthy court battle and saddled with wrangling high legal fees, she decided divhorse was out of the question, even though he was no longer no pal-o-mino! She would instead pretend to curry Ed's favour, get into her Pinto, drive through the neigh-borhood gaits and go get her sire's Colt 45. No one was going to make a foal out of her! No one was going to rein on her parade or slow her gait, once she shod him, she would remane Appaloosa, whether he ended up in horsepital, gelding better or in an anonymous plod of land. She would live on thorough bread, seabiscuits and ponies of horse liniment if she had to and run off to Canter-bury. That was her tale and she was sticking to it...even if all the horse manure to be guilty!

Etymology: Bridal (of or relating to a wedding )& Pathology (any deviation from a healthy or normal condition;the branch of medical science that studies the causes and nature and effects of diseases ) & Bridle Path (the act of restraining power or action or limiting excess;a road fit for riders, but not vehicles)

COMMENTS:

A narrative that a Mustang would surely find equinable. A tail that even a neigh sayer would consider to be a whinnying entry. - Mustang, 2008-06-11: 07:47:00

Thanks, Mustang...glad it Triggered a Champion response in you. - Nosila, 2008-06-11: 21:45:00

Thanks for the horseplay. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-06-12: 07:25:00
