Pronunciation: myu kas KAYD

Sentence: Vy Russ had had the flu for the past three days, and the tissues that she had been dropping in the little trash basket next to the couch had accumulated and begun to overflow. She was so tired and dizzy that she didn't even feel like emptying the basket when she went to the bathroom, so it had become a mucascade of snot rags tumbling, avalanche-like, to the floor. Too bad she lived alone. Or maybe, good thing she lived alone and no one else had to be subjected to it....

Kleenexsport

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kleen ex sport

Sentence: Lying in his sickbed, watching the Olympic Sports Channel all day, Ernie knew that he could win a gold medal for his country in the pathogen pentathlon: his nose runs, his eyes soar, his lip curls, his fever pitches and his body heats. He could do a slalom down the mountain of kleenexsport by the side of his bed. He would have to do a viral spiral to get to the bathroom before he had to luge again. Yes, his biohazard biathalon would end if he could only get some schuss time. His ailing body was truly an international competition: He put the "Germ" in Germany; the "chill" in Chile;the "I Ran" in Iran; the "Catarrh" in Qatar;and he had been feeling "Laos-y" all day!

Etymology: kleenex (a piece of soft absorbent paper usually two or more thin layers used as a disposable handkerchief) & export ( to transfer goods or to cause to spread) & sport (an active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition)
