Pronunciation: mahl-APP-row-PELL (malapropeller)

Sentence: Hank was quite gross in his youth- and now he's so crude and uncouth. He hacked up some moisture- and launched a thick oyster- so hard it included his tooth. Yes, Hank the Skank would belittle- all those who would swallow their spittle- For him it was sport- to land one in the port- We hope that he gags on a Skittle. (Hank was a MALAPROPELLER of the worst kind. An unrepentant DISGUSTOLAUNCHER, he would decorate the sidewalk with loathome lung by-products, repellent dollops of drool and vulgar volumes of vile vapours, too.)

Etymology: MALAPROpos+proPEL= MALAPROPEL.....MALAPROPOS: in an inappropriate or inopportune way; French mal à propos (1668).....PROPEL: to drive forward or onward by or as if by means of a force that imparts motion;Middle English propellen, from Latin propellere, from pro- before + pellere to drive.

Metrohumanx, I was imagining the graphic details as I read your sentence :)~ EWWW WEEE Old Hank is one Malapropel type Fella! I just hope he doesn't smoke as he starts to choke and fling out something YELLOW! (GOOD one!)
