Decorcrating: /de-core-crate-ing/ Everyone who stopped by my studio apartment felt the need to comment on my decorcrating. And you could always tell the recent visitors by the telltale grid imprints on their behinds after spending some time on my milk crate bar stools. These beauties were milk crates turned upside down and mounted on heavy duty orange construction cones. Very classy. Etymology: Decor and decorating modified to include crate. Created by: Nuwanda.

Gocartons: /go cart ons/ Con Taynor filched milk crates from the supermarkrate where he unloaded delivery trucks. He fabricrated appealing boox cases from the stolen milk crates and sold them at bargain rates. However, Con did not get rich until he put a seat, wheels, and an engine on one of those plastic milk crates, and made them into gocartons! Etymology: To FABRICATE from CRATES = FABRICRATE. BOOKS in BOXES = a BOOX case. GO-CART made from a milk CARTON = GOCARTON. --- It was hard not to make fabricrate the chosen verbotomy, but there were/are already enough with crate in the etymology, so I went with gocarton.
