Badditive

Created by: Nosila

Piquantoxifodder

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PICK-one-TOCKS-ih-fodder

Sentence: Chuck planted his corpulent posterior in the orange naugahide chair and settled down to his first day at the new job. Thankful to be employed, he relished his new assignment at Universal Test Kitchens...sampling and rating new food products before they were foisted upon the unsuspecting public.Being a true foodlum, he had quaffed, chomped, swigged and munched through an array of buyprodux, each containing an ersatz nutritute carefully engineered from corn syrup and cheap tropical fat. Some dishes were trendylicious and pungent, others had all the appeal of a used bovine salt lick. It wasn't until the late afternoon when Chuck found his favorite concoction. It was real PIQUANTOXIFODDER - stripped of any wasteful vitamins, yet replete with satisfying textures that reminded him of that strangest of foods- tapioca. After secretly cramming down his third helping, Chuck succumbed to a case of megacramps that a gallon of peptodismall wouldn't cure. On the way home, he had to pull over discreetly near an irrigation ditch and make a contribution.Plop Plop Fizz Fizz. Sweating like a cut of rancid pork, Chuck knew that the product he ingested was sure to be a great seller. It was....ambrosia!

Sinmatation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sin ma tay shun

Sentence: John's kitchen was a chemist's nightmare. His prepared and processed foods were full of ingredients with very long, complex and foreign sounding components. His fridge and freezer were filled with modified products like near-beer, fake-a-cola, meatcheat, shamham, narydairy, stiltedcheese, designwine, oughterwater, yolkjoke, pearsatz and artifishfingers. John had traded away nutrition and healthy sustenance for convenience and sinmatation. His pantry contained replicas of foods, like synammon, appeteasers, fakemixes, bastardpasta, forgeporridge, macaphoni, wannabeans, dupesoup,inbreads, fauxjoe, cornterfeits and other appetite simulants. Yes, John, would learn later in life that trading off cooking time and a few calories and possible tooth decay for mysterious, unpronounceable carcinogenic substances was a short-sighted exchange.

Etymology: Sin (an act that is regarded by theologians as a transgression of God's will) & Synthetic (a compound made artificially by chemical reactions;not of natural origin; prepared or made artificially) & Imitation ( copying (or trying to copy) the actions of someone/something else)
