Rolbax

Created by: Biscotti

Pronunciation: role-backs

Sentence: John couldn't figure out why he had a horrible case of the rolbax. He weighed himself every night before bed and then weighed himself every morning at about 5 pounds more than the previous day's start. He used the weight set day and night for weeks; and was ready to file a complaint to the company until his wife told him he had a horrible midnight snack attack every night...to which John replied, "But I only ate 5 pork chops, two gallons of ice cream and drank half a keg of beer..."

Etymology: roll (to move) + backs (coming back)
