Pronunciation: dissed-service

The chickens decided to organize and sent a petition to the entire farm community, and everyone gladly signed. When the farmer read the petition, he looked at Henrietta and smiled. "I had no idea you felt dissed by me," he said, "but don't worry, I'll see you Sunday afternoon for dinner. Why don't you bring some buiscuts?" Moral: Don't squawk at someone unless you know what's on his plate.

Pronunciation: cuo ma

Sentence: Henny’s queuoma spared her life for quite a while! She pleasantly stood in line in a kind of queuoma, and failed to notice the other stupidly eager birds stepping out in front of the line. As she neared the start of the line the sights and sounds before her were reminding her she was a chicken! Horrid chops! Oh the panic! Running around with their heads cut off! Henny forced herself back into her queuoma, allowing all other rude birds passage a HEAD!

Etymology: From queu (to line up) and coma (a state of unconsciousness). Queuomas occur when lining up and not noticing others stepping ahead in line and not really caring.

Pronunciation: linēərāj

Sentence: Gerry was happy when he was finally able to take his kids to Disney World. He fully expected to have to wait in lines.

Etymology: linear (arranged in or extending along a straight or nearly straight line) + rage (violent, uncontrollable anger)

Pronunciation: Queue - irkt

Sentence: There was only one clerk at one register at Kame-Apart. Dismayed and waylaid, in a long line, those imprisoned in it found no time peace. Then, the chap at the end, like a defensive forward, with elbows attackling, made a mad line drive, surging queueickly to the front, leaving the rest of us waitstresses even more queueirked!

Etymology: QUEUE, IRKED, QUIRKED. QUEUE - waiting line. IRKED - annoyed, frustrated, exasperated, irritated and angry. QUIRK - the twist of fate that resulted in the long line and the line-jumper. /// Kame-Apart for K-Mart is not my invention. I have heard it many times and don't know who created it. /// Attackling is a verbotomy of attack and tackling. /// Queueickly is a verbotomy of queue and quickly.


clever blend - Jabberwocky, 2009-04-07: 15:24:00

You're so kind...Ya see I just voice my feelings to to others around me loud enough for the clerk to hear & feel foolish..and in the end when this happened to me it backfired on the RUDE "cutinfronther" that broke in became a joke :) Poetic Justice! hehehe - abrakadeborah, 2009-04-07: 05:27:00

Very much enjoyed your verse, and the way it did not make him curse, a nice twist to make his linewait end, with the making of a new friend! Nicest sentence of the day. Again your verbotomy is a good long word play! (in more ways than one - the play is the thing!) - silveryaspen, 2009-04-07: 11:41:00

metrohumanx Merci beaucoups! I don't have the pun-gent abilities that others do, but i try to keep it amusing. Some people think that puns are the lowest form of writing, but there's verse! - metrohumanx, 2009-04-07: 16:03:00

Puns are not only fun but good brain exercise ... and dittor for verse ... which also helps one to say it better with less words ... They are signs of intelligence, not dunce! - silveryaspen, 2009-04-07: 21:39:00

metrohumanx I was just attempting a pun....there's verse-MUCH verse... - metrohumanx, 2009-04-08: 01:12:00

:-) you are a very nice pun-gent! - silveryaspen, 2009-04-08: 07:09:00
