Cusstodian

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: kəsˈtōdēən

Sentence: Sending Billy to spend the Summer with his Grandpa seemed like a great idea at first. It turns out that PaPa is a terrific cusstodian. Sally sent away a cute, sweet 4-year old and retrieved a foul-mouth terror. The first inkling she had was when asked Billy to help collect and load his stuff into the car. "Get it yourself, bitch!". She was stunned. PaPa's snickering didn't make her feel any better.

Etymology: cuss (an offensive word or phrase used to express anger or annoyance) custodian (somebody who is in charge or looks after something or someone)

Rolemuddle

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: Rohl-MUHD-l

Sentence: No, no, don't give up. I must put the words into my mind's blender. Beaugross; Impravity; Paracretinize. Damn it, they haven't mixed too well, have they? I must stick to my system to the letter. Faginize -that's a new twist. Don't panic; don't despair. I gotta keep my negativity in check. Peccachickie, braternize, "wickedpedia". I give up, it's all skyscrimble. My mind's in a muddle, a muddle, a muddle. Muddle - that's something a bit more like it - that's it, I think I've got it: "rolemuddle".

Etymology: ROLEMUDDLE: role: part played by a person in life; Muddle: to cause to be confused, mixed up; to muddy

libertybelle good word! - libertybelle, 2008-02-26: 08:49:00

Oh, this is a good one. Though "faginize" would've been nice too if it weren't for the fact that our Dickens-starved, PC society would probably think to lump the first three letters together instead of the first five. "You've got to pick a pocket or two, boys..." - ErWenn, 2008-02-26: 10:11:00

you certainly ended up with a god word - I go through the same mental gymnastics every morning - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 13:17:00

sorry - I meant good word - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 15:54:00

Not only is it an excellent word ... it fits my mind and life to a T today ... sometimes we just have to muddle onward! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-26: 18:50:00

Cawrupt

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: caw rupt

Sentence: My biggest pollygripe about picking up my pet parrot,Polly Walnuts, from my brother after my vacation was to find that he tried to cawrupt the Gullible bird. Instead of saying his usual "Polly wanna cracker", my brother taught him to swear and to answer the phone and impersonate others. He'd say his name was Capt.Jack Sparrow or Peter Finch or Walter Pigeon or Bird Reynolds or Jay Leno or Dan Quail or Denny Crane or Robin Leach or Russell Crow or Feather Locklear or Placido Flamingo. He also taught him rude sentences like, "Come over and I'll show you a cockatoo" or "You should see the big Parakeets in the next cage" and "You're a Raven Loonatic". One thing about birds is that you cannot unteach them to say something once it is wired into their tiny brains on a Condor that they aren't too Swift and that is something that is very hard to Swallow!

Etymology: corrupt (alter from the original;place under suspicion or cast doubt upon; containing errors or alterations)& Caw (a sound made by birds)

Patribaldry

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: pat-rih-bull-dree

Sentence: Dear Mr. Silverstein, I'm writing to you today concerning the behavior of your son, Andrew Dice, in my morning kindergarten class. He has become somewhat of a distraction to the class, and I have to question whether or not he is being exposed to the proper developmental tools at home. His sense of humor is overly mature for a class of this level, and I don't think it would be inaccurate to state that he has the vocabulary of a longshoreman. When asked to share his favorite nursery rhyme in class the other day, he recited a profane perversion of "Jack and Jill". He laughs alound whenever someone mentions playing with balls at recess, or I chastise a member of the class for eating paste. I caught a member of the class a week ago giving herself a haircut with the safety shears, and Andrew suggested that she use them for a "Brazillian". He routinely pulls the covers off of female members of the class during nap time, throws a handful of change at them, and tells them "you gotta get outta here". Whether patribaldry is to blame or some other member of your family has instilled these poor behaviors, this must be corrected, or we will have no other option but to remove your child from our school. Sincerely, Mrs. Abagail Trenton, Sunny Heights Grade School

Etymology: patri - of the father, ribaldry - obscene or improper behavior
