Sentence: Celldon was one Celleezy person. Whenever he took his latest girlfriend, Cellcilia out, he would repeatedly answer the calls he got from his future girlfriends Cellectra or Cellvia on his cell and talk to them for ages, in the company of Cellcilia. Needless to say, Cellcilia, would get upset and feel ignored, particularly when his chats turned to a more graphic nature. He often wondered why these women became so cellective and never wanted to go on a second date. Oh well, plenty more fish in the sea to cellect from... That is until one day he answered such a call in front of his wife, Cellda... It took the doctors three hours to surgically remove that cellphone from Celldon's cellected orifice. And yes, he can hear her now.

Etymology: cell (cellular phone) & sleazy (tawdry, lacking class, morally degraded, of poor quality)
