Comemotions

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: come motions

Sentence: It wasn't a low-rider, but a loud-rider tunebuggy, Teenie was stearing down the streets. The amplifliers sent everything on the dash flying. Only his seat belt kept the constant sonic booms from sending Teenie flying. He rolled along with woofears and tweetears blaring, a deaf-defying menace loose on the streets. I'm so sick of the these comemotions all over the streets. I've written my state representatives to introduce a law to make all these comemotions disalloud.

Etymology: COME, COMMOTIONS. Come - as in approach, which is what vehicles do as they move down the streets. Commotion - a ruckus: a scene of noisy confusion or activity, which is what such vehicles with deafening sound systems are. - - - Might as well throw in MOTIONS - for all the movements involved, including those to try to get away from these comemotions!

Testostemonium

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: tes-toss-teh-moan-i-um

Sentence: Every spring young dudes are gripped by the pangs of testostemonium, exhibited by driving 50 mph in a school zone, blaring teenage angst music until their speakers blow up, and acting out "Rebel Without a Cause." They do this because testostemonium convinces them that this attention seeking behavior actually impresses potential mates. In reality this behavior does nothing to increase their desirability to the opposite sex and actually has the counter effect of impressing other single males who want to sit in front of a television and drink beer.

Etymology: testosterone: male sex hormone responsible for male characteristics + pandemonium: very noisy place; a wild, chaotic, noisy uproar; the abode of demons

Musclecardor

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mus sel kar dor

Sentence: At the fist sight of spring all the young males in town display their musclecardor. They rev up their Challengers, Mustangs, GTO's, Barracudas, Corvette's, Chargers, Camaro's, Firebirds, T-Birds and Gran Torino's that they have spent all winter suping up with more gadgetry. The quiet neighborhoods then become NASCAR raceways and the sound of engines and stereos can be deafening. It's all part of the rites of spring to attract the attention of future mates, even if only for one night. Females seem to not need to participate in this noisy pastime, except as passengers. It is similar to the mating rituals of some birds, where the males puff up their feathers and strut to attract an interested female...like what grouse or peacocks do. These males drive around for hours, never leaving their precious vehicles, to ensure they have been seen and heard by all. They forget each spring of the side affects of sitting for hours revving motors. They waste a lot of expensive fuel and they can become afflicted with hemi-roids!

Etymology: Muscle Car (a flashy car with a big noisy engine, designed to look like a sports car; often symbolic of other macho attributes...) & Ardor (feelings of great warmth and intensity;a feeling of strong eagerness (usually in favor of a person or cause) Encarta® World English Dictionary [North American Edition] © & (P)2009 Microsoft Corporation.
