Guardiantic

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /gahr-dee-AN-tik/

Sentence: It was only Eliza's third week teaching the 10-year-old class in Sunday School, but when the organist was late, she had to help out with choir practice, too. She reluctantly asked her father to stand-in and watch the Sunday School class. When she returned, she found her dear ole' Dad teaching the kids how to run a football pool, how to build a moonshine still, and other guardiantics.

Animmorality

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: ann - immore - ahl - itee

Sentence: If it was possible for an animal to be immoral, so it was with my Parrot Belvidere. After we left him in the care of our friends John and Marcee, he came back to us with a foul mouth, lewd behavior and a new vocabulary that would make even George Carlin cringe (if he were still alive). In fact, Belvidere started to say things like "Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town"....and he truly became the monkey on our backs, the finest example of animmorality you could ever find....@$$$$@!!e3 and everything in between to you pal!!!

Etymology: This word starts with Animal and is joined with immorality (the quality of not being in accord with standards of right or good conduct).
