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 these 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 is 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

Sentence: Sending Billy to spend the Summer with his Grandpa seemed like a great idea at first. It turns out that PaPa is a terrific cusstodian. Sally sent away a cute, sweet 4-year old and retrieved a foul-mouth terror. The first inkling she had was when asked Billy to help collect and load his stuff into the car. "Get it yourself, bitch!". She was stunned. PaPa's snickering didn't make her feel any better.

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

Anticsrudeshow

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: an tix rood sho

Sentence: With no other babysitting options when she left town on business trips, Marcie had no choice but to live with the anticsrudeshow than ensued after her kids went to stay with her elderly Aunt FiFi. Aunt FiFi was ancient but spry, had never wed, and among other things, had travelled the world, been mistress to many famous and notorious men and entertained in burlesque in Vegas and Atlantic City in her checkered career. From her, Marcie's 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son had learned how to shoot craps, read the racing handicaps, mix martinis extra dry, swear like troopers, dance the Charleston and tango, load a derringer, and had watched every mob movie ever made. They had learned to say a lot of new words in Sicilian, spell "Witness Relocation Program" and knew that "RICO" stood for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Yes, Show and Tell days at school after visits to Aunt Fifi were always riotous and resulted in Marcie's being called to the Principal's Office. Marcie thought that the word describing those days should have been called "Aunticsrudeshowandtell" instead!

Etymology: antics (a ludicrous or grotesque act done for fun) & rude (socially incorrect behaviour) & show (a public exhibition or entertainment) & Antiques Road Show (showing off something old whose value is relative and usually not worth as much to others.

Wow, clever creation and amusing story! Was Aunt Fifi inspired by Auntie Mame, perhaps? - Tigger, 2008-02-26: 02:07:00

great story - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 11:43:00

Clever and funny story! Anyhow, it could have been worse: imagine if Beavis & Butthead were Marie's only choice as baby-sitters! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-26: 15:59:00

Admire the inventiveness of your word and the play on the tv show! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-26: 18:46:00

Cheers, my friends and in the words of the show....How much do you think it's worth?.... - Nosila, 2008-02-26: 22:15:00

Tigger, I think it was spelled Auntie Maim in this case... - Nosila, 2008-02-26: 22:52:00
