Etymology: Blend of 'flatulence' (The presence of excessive gas in the digestive tract) and 'fabrication' (something fabricated, esp. an untruthful statement)

Regretulence

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: re gret yu lens

Sentence: Sarah hated eating with her brother Sid, as he delighted in torturing her with his bad manners.

This was also galling as the dog was never in the house at meal times!

Nospareagas

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: no sper a gass

Sentence: Rudy was aptly named. Being an immature twit, he took great delight in using bodily functions to offend people, especially his sister, Prissy. His favourite was anything to do with passing gas. He could summon expulsions from either his mouth or the end he sits on, at will. He had worked hard to develop this "skill" and thrilled to torture his sister with it. He figured he should be harnessed aa a natural resource. Of course he insincerely apologized first, but his policy of being a nospareagas ninja (not silent, but deadly) meant he could do it on demand, throughout the meal. Who needs wind power...he had it perfected. One night Prissy had had enough. She made the meal with cauliflour, beans, artichokes,onions, sprouts and ensured that his portion was liberally doused with parsley juice, bran and other fibres and crushed laxative pills. Oh yes, Rudy could have his fun at supper, but she would have the last laugh all through the long, long night!

Etymology: no ( used to express refusal or denial or disagreement etc or especially to emphasize a negative statement ) & spare (save or relieve from an experience or action ) & gas (attack with gas; subject to gas fumes) & asparagas (edible young shoots of the asparagus plant, after which digestion causes gas build-up and emanates a peculiar smell)
