Lintassesment

Created by: Kennecticut

Pronunciation: lint~assesment

Sentence: With her thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool, it was confirmed that this filament could be removed. She turned to page 32 of the manual on ' The right tool for the job' and found she needed the enticement tool, stored adjacent to the crevice tool. Noting the enticement tool has a row of brushes to if not actually vacuum the lint then at least entrap it for later cleaning of the enticement tool itself. The thumb and forefinger lintassesment tool also works well for this specialized task. She might have done just as well utilizing the black slack lint magnet tool. Maybe next time, then she can leave the work up to the professionals and the dry cleaners.

Lintzilla

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: lintzilə

Sentence: Linda knew she was in trouble when she first saw it lurking beneath the sofa. It had apparently resisted previous attempts at extracation. She wasn't sure even her new cyclone vacuum was any match for this dust bunny from Hades, this Lintzilla. She was right. The best she could accomplish was to get the vacuum to choke on a small snippet. To vanquish this villian she had to resort to the ultimate weapon, The Hand!

Suctioenable

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: Suck-shi-en-ay-bull

Sentence: The process of suctioenabling the vacuum as it missed toenail, after finger, after earlobe was not the most efficient method for Roger to dispose of his ex-wife's body, but it certainly was entertaining.

Etymology: suction + enable

But did he have to stop and change the bag? Heh. - Jamagra, 2008-04-04: 08:18:00

Do you write horror films in your spare time? Great sentence but a little creepy. - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-04: 08:43:00

Haha, no I don't write much other than these verbotomy nanostories. I've been hitting the blood and guts a bit heavy as of late, haven't I? - Banky, 2008-04-04: 10:05:00

that's okay - your writing is great no matter the genre - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-04: 12:14:00

Yeah, Banky's mini-stories are good stuff. The sick, twisted and gory kind of good... - Tigger, 2008-04-04: 16:21:00

Vaccelibate

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: vak-SEL-uh-beyt

Sentence: "Fingernail", who for so long, somehow, managed to avoid being sucked up, finally succumbed. But just after she was lifted up, there was movement inside the bag and she feared she was about to be split in half. There in front of her was her friend, "Cotton-bud" looking used, abused, and a little worse for wear. Blackened by several layers of mascara, and her face covered in rouge, it was the bedraggled "CB" who spoke first. "Where's "Ivory Button," she said. "Oh, you know what it's like, with her its a matter of life-choice, replied Fingernail. Even Casahoova, himself - "Mr Super Deluxe" with his long proboscis and pulling power, couldn't move her. Sure he tried, and really sucked up to her; caressing, cajoling, cooing and wooing. But Heaven forbid she suckmit to him and his pushy ways. She's an inveterate vaccelibate, who wouldn't allow herself to be picked up by a sucker like him."

Etymology: VAC:short for vacuum cleaner & CELIBATE: one who abstains from sexual relations - and, certainly, wouldn't allow him or herself to be "picked-up."

I think she turned Casahoova into Casahoovanovay - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-04: 08:46:00

Eurekagain

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: yoŏrēkəgen

Sentence: Milly is one to give everybody a second chance. This even applies to dust bunnies. If her sad old vacuum isn’t able to pick up a lump of dust, she has been known to give them the Eurekagain treatment, running over and over these fuzzy little critters usually with less-than-wonderful results. She may even get down on her hands and knees to break up dustballs to make them easier to deal with.

Etymology: eureka (A brand of vaccuum)(a cry of joy or satisfaction when one finds or discovers something) + again (another time; once more)
