Cawrupt

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: caw rupt

Sentence: My biggest pollygripe about picking up my pet parrot,Polly Walnuts, from my brother after my vacation was to find that he tried to cawrupt the Gullible bird. Instead of saying his usual "Polly wanna cracker", my brother taught him to swear and to answer the phone and impersonate others. He'd say his name was Capt.Jack Sparrow or Peter Finch or Walter Pigeon or Bird Reynolds or Jay Leno or Dan Quail or Denny Crane or Robin Leach or Russell Crow or Feather Locklear or Placido Flamingo. He also taught him rude sentences like, "Come over and I'll show you a cockatoo" or "You should see the big Parakeets in the next cage" and "You're a Raven Loonatic". One thing about birds is that you cannot unteach them to say something once it is wired into their tiny brains on a Condor that they aren't too Swift and that is something that is very hard to Swallow!

Etymology: corrupt (alter from the original;place under suspicion or cast doubt upon; containing errors or alterations)& Caw (a sound made by birds)

Animmorality

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: ann - immore - ahl - itee

Sentence: If it was possible for an animal to be immoral, so it was with my Parrot Belvidere. After we left him in the care of our friends John and Marcee, he came back to us with a foul mouth, lewd behavior and a new vocabulary that would make even George Carlin cringe (if he were still alive). In fact, Belvidere started to say things like "Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town"....and he truly became the monkey on our backs, the finest example of animmorality you could ever find....@$$$$@!!e3 and everything in between to you pal!!!

Etymology: This word starts with Animal and is joined with immorality (the quality of not being in accord with standards of right or good conduct).

Rolemuddle

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: Rohl-MUHD-l

Sentence: No, no, don't give up. I must put the words into my mind's blender. Beaugross; Impravity; Paracretinize. Damn it, they haven't mixed too well, have they? I must stick to my system to the letter. Faginize -that's a new twist. Don't panic; don't despair. I gotta keep my negativity in check. Peccachickie, braternize, "wickedpedia". I give up, it's all skyscrimble. My mind's in a muddle, a muddle, a muddle. Muddle - that's something a bit more like it - that's it, I think I've got it: "rolemuddle".

Etymology: ROLEMUDDLE: role: part played by a person in life; Muddle: to cause to be confused, mixed up; to muddy

COMMENTS:

libertybelle good word! - libertybelle, 2008-02-26: 08:49:00

Oh, this is a good one. Though "faginize" would've been nice too if it weren't for the fact that our Dickens-starved, PC society would probably think to lump the first three letters together instead of the first five. "You've got to pick a pocket or two, boys..." - ErWenn, 2008-02-26: 10:11:00

you certainly ended up with a god word - I go through the same mental gymnastics every morning - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 13:17:00

sorry - I meant good word - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 15:54:00

Not only is it an excellent word ... it fits my mind and life to a T today ... sometimes we just have to muddle onward! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-26: 18:50:00
