Lackcelerate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lak sel er ayt

Sentence: When Sydney drove his old sports car out and about, he drove very slowly even in the fast lane, behind a big cow. His failure to lackcelerate caused many passersby to give him the finger and hurl abuse at him. Sydney did not care...he was nearly deaf, wore thick glasses due to his myopia and put-putted his way along. One day the local constabulary pulled him over for obstructing the flow of traffic. The officer was confused why Sydney was always following a cow. Sydney pointed out that the cow was towing him because it saved him a fortune on gas!

Etymology: Lack (to be without) & Accelerate (to move faster)

Egomotortist

Created by: verbherder

Pronunciation: ee-goh-moh-tawr-tist

Sentence: It was ten minutes to close at the only store in town when my baby's mama held up the last diaper in the house and announced that junior had suddenly developed an explosive case of diarrhea. I would have made it there and back with time to spare if not for an egomotortist in a Prius. When I returned without reinforcements, things went south down south. For the rest of the night I wished that junior could have spent just one minute in that guy's car.

Etymology: egotist + motorist + tortoise (in sound mostly)

Slotorist

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: slōtərist

Sentence: It never fails. The only day that you are behind schedule, you get stuck in back of a slotorist. Through the rear window all you can see is a fedora and a set of wrinkled white knuckles. The brake lights pop on at every curve or dip in the road. Just when you think you\'ll explode, you get a section of the road where you can pass. On you go to make up some time only to get pulled for speeding. The procedure takes a few minutes. Just long enough for you to resume your position behind Methuselah.

Etymology: slow (not quick or fast) + motorist (driver of an automobile)

Slowffeur

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: slo fewer

Sentence: Archie drove his ancient Triumph convertible every day down the freeway to his appointments and errands. He was a slowffeur and believed his car lasted longer if he drove slower. Luckily he was very hard of hearing, so he missed all the honks he got from his fellow commuters in the fast lane. He believed that a safe speed was one that was exactly one half of the posted limit. He was finally pulled over one morning by the Highway Patrol. The officer naturally requested to see his license and insurance papers, to which Archie finally shouted: "Never needed either, since I never go over the limits. I don't need papers, I know how to drive!"

Etymology: Slow (not moving quickly; taking a comparatively long time) & Chauffeur (someone paid to drive a person in a car;to drive someone in a vehicle;a person who drives vehicles for a living)
