Sentence: After going so far as to dig a small crater in his front yard to get rid of that hideous weed, Adam decided this was war. He rented a bazooka and blasted the sucker half way to China. But nevertheless, he woke up next morning to an entire yard of walking dead zombelions. Not even the exterminator could rid him of this curse...

Etymology: Zombie (living dead, never dies) + Dandelion (a common weed which never seems to go away either)

Reminds me of "Day of The Triffids"- an old sci-fi movie about ambulatoty killer plants.
