Marrwedge

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: marwej - If you say it right, you'll sound like Elmer Fudd

Sentence: John and Mary found themselves becoming more distant from each other. It wasn't that they didn't care for each other deeply. The problem was that Mollie, their Norwegian Elkhound had taken to sleeping in their bed. Sure it was cute when she was a puppy and slept at the foot of the bed. As she got bigger and the weather got colder Mollie crept towards the pillows. She is no longer just a dog, she is a marrwedge. Now she is a full-fledged, cover-stealing, fur-shedding, intimacy-quelling bed hog.

Etymology: marriage (matrimony)+ wedge (a piece of wood, metal, or some other material having one thick end and tapering to a thin edge, that is driven between two objects or parts of an object to separate them)

Corabbitation

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: ko-rab-bi-TEY-shun

Sentence: I heard scratching; was that Cotton-tail - had he returned?" Quickly, I leapt out of bed, and opened the bedroom door. Sweeping my furry little friend up in my arms, I said, "Where have you been?" In a nanosecond, I knew the answer, six little bunnies were running over my toes. Cotton-tail had brought his family home. Jumping up onto my bed, they all snuggled around me: it was cozy: it was contentment: it was corabbitation. Suddenly, and it seemed like only seconds later, a jagged elbow buried itself into my ribs. Roxie rasped, "Wake up; dreaming again; I suppose, what about this time?" "Rabbits," I said. "More like Playboy Bunnies," she responded.

Etymology: Rabbit & Co-habitation.

Goatobed

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: go - to - bed

Sentence: No sooner had the infomercial finished, than Jerry had dialled the number to order his goatobed, for just $49.95. It was not just the chance to reduce his electricity bill, but the electric blankpet was now downright dangerous, the shleep had proved unsuccessful with his insomnia, and there was the prospect of home-made feta. He was hoping to phone his order in early enough to score a bonus pillow shampoodle to keep his ears warm at night. He just hoped that the duVET bills would not be too expensive. No longer would he be dogtired after his catnaps.

Etymology: "go to bed" + goat
