Deadibles

TimTheEnchanter

Created by: TimTheEnchanter

Pronunciation: DED-i-bulls

Sentence: Rob was stumped. Lizzy couldn't stand the fact that his parents disliked her, so she insisted on hosting his parents for dinner in an attempt to make them like her more. Considering the last time she'd hosted a meal, 3 people ended up in the hospital he tried to convince her they should take his parents out. But she would not budge. "Well", Rob thought, "If we give them some of her deadibles, they probably won't be around to complain about her any more."

Etymology: Dead (no longer living) + Edibles (Food) Food that makes you dead = Deadibles

Guesstronomy

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: gess tron om mee

Sentence: Rose and Herb always hated being invited to her sister, Saffron's, for dinner. They enjoyed her company, but hated her cooking. Saffron had a knack for combining inedible and unpalatable concoctions. She did not believe in throwing out food and so she "used" up whatever had withered/expired/gone bad in her fridge, freezer or cupboards to make her ghastly meals. She often added critters and noxious plants she found around the neighbourhood to the mix. To make matters worse, guests had to guess what was in these creations. Saffron joked that this was her Guesstronomy skills at work. Any one who survived their hospital visits after her cooking refused to return. Wishing to spare her feelings, Rose & Herb pretended to eat, but never did actually partake of these horrible repasts. They thought Saffron should become an Army cook, in an enemy's army! Sam & Ella, Toe Maine, Steph Infection, Mr. E. Coli and Bott Chewlism were the only other guests that attended these feasts and they always came back for more!

Etymology: Guess (an estimate based on little or no information; a message expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence) & Gastronomy (the art and practice of choosing and preparing and eating food)

Demealiorate

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: dee - meel - eor - ate

Sentence: Sandra had a cooking jinx on her. She could demealiorate a frozen pizza. When she boiled water, the air began to smell foul. So, you can imagine the Thanksgiving feast her family was soon to be in for. Everyone was gladly offering to help cook or bring dishes. Funny thing was that Sandra actually considered herself to be a cooking genius. "Let's see, I think I'll start out with turkey beast, stuffed with makerel-raisen cornbread. Hmmmm potatoes mashed with curry/anchovie paste would be good but I'll leave the rolls alone this year.

Etymology: The base of this word is ameliorate (to make better or more tolerable, improve or grow better). The word meal is inserted and the prefix "de" is added which changes words to mean less smaller or decreasing.
