Corpugeal

Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: n: corp'/u/jeel v: corp/u/jeel'

Etymology: corpulent (fleshy, fat) + congeal (to solidify or jell)

Epilipidsediment

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: Epee-lip-id-sed-ih-ment

Sentence: Jason's penchant for pounding beers and caffeinated drinks throughout the day belied his half attempted efforts to lose weight.

Etymology: Epi (put on) + lipid (fat) + sediment (a play on sedentary, to stay in one place/ mendacious, to lie)

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Killergrams

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kil ler gramz

Sentence: Melanie had tried everything to lose a few pounds, like Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Atkins, LA Weight Loss, Herbal Magic, Scarsdale, The Zone, heck even Oprah Winfrey's latest method. She visited their sites everyday, but lost not an ounce. She had also tried every possible fitness regime, too. But no matter what she tried, she still had those extra killergrams on her that she could not shed. She actually got a lot of exercise in her daily routine: she surfed the Net, jumped to conclusions, ran out of money, juggled her tasks, pushed her luck, drove her family mad and plowed through her paperwork, but still a thin body eluded her. How would she ever look as good as those women on the magazine covers in the grocery store? You know, the ones who stared back at you accusingly as you bought ice cream, pop, chips, candy and booze!

Etymology: Kilograms (metric weight unit of 1000 grams) & Killer (a difficulty that is hard to deal with;the causal agent resulting in death Example: "Heart disease is the biggest killer in America")

artr Thanks for entering elepants. That's the first time I had someone pick up a secondary word from one of my sentences. - artr, 2009-01-09: 18:07:00

Sixpackflabs

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /siks-pak-FLABZ/

Sentence: Russell had switched to whole-grain doughnuts, light beer, and he was now using only low-fat mayonaise on his bacon and cheese sandwiches, plus, he'd been taking the stairs up to his 2nd floor apartment once a day, instead of using the elevator, and he'd even started doing armchair aerobics — trying to reach down to touch his knees during the TV commercials — and yet he was still gaining weight. Now he had sixpackflabs to show for it, and was well on his way to sporting a keg-belly.

Etymology: blend of; Six-Pack-Abs - well developed abdominal muscles (colloqiualism for the three pairs of bulges apparent in well defined abdominal muscles) + Flabs - soft fatty body tissue (back-formation from flabby, from Middle English, flabband "flapping")
