Lanepain

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: layn payn

Sentence: It never failed, thought Mario, just when I am in a hurray, I get stuck behind some lanepain. He feels that it is his duty to observe the posted limit, even though he is the only one in traffic to do so. You never see him when you are not in a hurray yourself...just when you need to get somewhere really quickly. Well, if this slug didn't move over soon, Mario knew he would have to take desperate action, even if he had to drive right over his car. Afterall, he was not going to be lanepained on this first lap and lose the entire Indy 500!

Etymology: lane (a way or road or a well-defined track or path,like in traffic) & pain (emotional distress; a fundamental feeling that people try to avoid or something or someone that causes trouble; a source of unhappiness or to cause emotional anguish or make miserable)

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)
