Pronunciation: poll tree sam ba

Sentence: At the Gizzard's wedding, Vi was a bridesmaid and was forced to dance with the best man, the obnoxious Tom, who was drunk on Grey Goose Vodka. She was mortified when he dragged her up to do the Chicken Dance and everyone in the room stopped what they were doing to take a gander at his poultrysamba style of twerpsichore. He had no trouble getting "down" but he kept honking for Vi to get him back up. That's when he start calling her his little Viagra. When the seemingly endless dance mercifully was over, Tom goosed Vi and she in turn clipped his "wings". Of course, this was caught on video and is now all over the Web!

Etymology: Poultry (a domesticated gallinaceous bird though to be descended from the red jungle fowl) & Samba (a lively ballroom dance from Brazil) & Play on Paltry Sum (not worth considering)
