Sentence: Prince Hammie Boy was so obsessed with and conflicted by his mother's marriage to his father's brother, he created a mamamiasma in the castle and left quite a few dead, giving truth to the expression "something is rotten in Denmark." Those involved in the clean-up soon suffered from mamamiasthma.

Etymology: Blending Mama Mia (title of musical/Italian for "my mama") + miasma (putrid air)
