Blimpstaken

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Blimp ms taken

Sentence: Blimpstaken for the fifth time today, Tom pondered why circumstances, (he preferred to accuse Lady Destiny) thrust him towards lactating females who were not in fact lactating. He then wondered if his constant blimpstakes was his psyche trying to tell him something... he looked at his wife, shuddered, and turned over. Thank God for birth control! The next morning his wife was to exclaim that she was pregnant, and when confronted by an agonized Tom she admitted she had been off the pill for months, that she was tired of people coming up to her with congratulations for an non-existent pregnancy. "To say 'yes, thank you very much' for once, Tom! How wonderful that would make me feel!"

Etymology: Blimp (bloated) & mistaken (in error)

very nice play on words ... but the meaning could be mistaken for a man's padded belly while playing Santa.
