Pronunciation: thrift - rap

Sentence: Benjamin always used thriftwrap for his gifts. He reclaimed all wrappings from gifts he received throughout the year and sometimes reused styrofoam take-out containers as boxes.

Etymology: thrift (parsimony: extreme care in spending money; reluctance to spend money unnecessarily) + wrap (enclose or enfold completely with or as if with a covering)


Good one! - Mustang, 2008-12-23: 00:39:00

Pronunciation: Rap it tran sit

Sentence: Paper Rosey had quite a system. She was a paper clip. She clipped paper from any source she could. She removed paper from gifts, copy machines, comics books, paperbacks, newspapers, even paper dolls, and toilet paper rolls. Paper Rosey even stripped the paper from the walls. Paper Rosey was also the ultimate paper resighcler. Her paper clippings were used, over and over again, to wrap her gifts. Paper Rosey even made paper jams, by taping and pasting small bits and pieces together, until she had enough to cover her gifts. Paper Rosey called all this her ... wrapitransit system.

Etymology: RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM, WRAP IT. RAPID TRANSIT - exspeedient rapid transition system using papers that should have been buried undergound but were quickly re-elevated to the status of gift wrap. WRAP IT - cover it with paper.
