Steporidae

Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: step/or'/i/dee

Sentence: Warren loved to surf to leporidae.com where he could chat about all 54 species of rabbits with other rabid fans. He didn't like to log on, however, if "Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog" was already online. Caerbannog was the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered creature ever to visit a website, and Warren could just imagine Caerbannog's big, pointy teeth! Warren had plans to attend night school and become a veterinarian. After getting his degree, he would finally be able to leave his current job at "Hoppers", the pet store specializing in rabbits and hares. Caerbannog, on more than one occasion, had steporidaed all over Warren's idaes about self-betterment which made Warren furryous. "Some people just don't carrot all," sniffed Warren as he surfed to a different site.

Etymology: step + leporidae (the rabbit "family" in scientific classification)

COMMENTS:

I hope Warren finds somebunny to love. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-02: 09:54:00

"Caerbannog was the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered creature ever to visit a website" He might have bunion or myxomatosia - he should seek treatment. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-04-02: 20:50:00

Clemenemesis

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Clem-en-em-eh-sis

Sentence: Richard Snodgrass was a passive man. He was bland and meek and wore lots of beige. His clemenemesis was Judy, his secretary, who ran the office with an iron fist and steel capped stilettos. He was ok with that, even though it made him feel weak. It meant people hated her instead of him, and his little rebellions consisted of meekly implying a decision was in fact hers and there was little he could do. Often that was right. He practiced sharp shooting on the weekends and dreamt about being a Pythonesque ferocious killer bunny.

Etymology: Clement - gentle, forgiving, pleasant; Nemesis - one's most villainous enemy. Eminem - popular and has no doubt stepped on some toes to get there; Mennuhmennuh - part of the chorus of the Muppet song, sung best by Animal, who is both an animal and fluffy..

Membrrrr

Created by: purpleartichokes

Pronunciation: mem-burrrr

Sentence: Hitting the "Create-a-Word" button on Verbotomy, purpleartichokes was "rewarded" with James' pre-programmed response: “Membrrrr” Loading: Checking dictionary for possible matching words... Spelling: Looks like your keyboard got stuck on one letter. Do you want to spell it like that? Existing: As expected, with such random letters Membrrrr does not match any existing dictionary words. Unique: And... (another insult that didn't copy. Care to fill in the blank James?) Purple now suspects that James is not only the host, but also a membrrrr.

Etymology: member, brrrr (an icy reaction to being given the cold shoulder)

COMMENTS:

Verbotomy Are you suggesting that the our automated tech support and creativity hints are a little icy? ~ James - Verbotomy, 2008-04-02: 07:26:00

suggesting?! heh! Very creative, purple! (May I call you purple?) - Jamagra, 2008-04-02: 07:53:00

I dunno James, why don't you just make the comments more succinct; say something like, "Wow, that's a really, really, crappy word! Care to join another site?", and give a link to Hooked on Phonics. Of course I jest... I love the verbsnottery! And thanks for the sentence! Jamagra, I think Miss Speller may be a better moniker for me. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-02: 09:44:00

and her's one for you purple 'Try to remembrrrr the kind of Septembrrrr' - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-02: 12:51:00

oops should have been 'here's' - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-02: 12:52:00

Gawd, I hate that song. (then follow, follow-follow-follow...) Gee, thanks. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-02: 19:07:00

Fauxpaw

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: fōpô

Sentence: Buffy just can't seem to get things right. She doesn't quite understand the etiquette of the local dog park. She is always the one who creates the fauxpaw. All the others are having fun roughing around when she arrives. As soon as she tries to join in, the people there start screaming at her and pulling their dogs away. Its not her fault that the Pomeranian looks and sounds just like a squeaky toy. Such is the life of a pitbull.

Etymology: faux pas (an embarrassing or tactless act or remark in a social situation) + paw (an animal's foot having claws and pads)

Besiegious

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: beh seej ee us

Sentence: Gretta suffered from an ingrown sense of entitlement and superiority. Often she would join a group and try to quickly assess how to rise up in the ranks of coolness by selecting the weakest link. Her years in middle and high school prepared her with many opportunities to crush anyone who were not worthy of her attention and who would not be spineless followers of her entourage of cliquiness. However, this all came to a screeching halt when she decided to enter the workforce and had to make nice with all of the other employees. Her besiegious behavior was not tolerated and when she attacked the nicest person within the established office culture, she was immediately shown a different pecking order.

Etymology: besiege + egregious
