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)

Does Mollie snore like my Rascal or steal your pillow if you get up to use the bathroom? - wayoffcenter, 2009-01-06: 04:47:00

Codepetent

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: co dee PET ent

Sentence: You know how 1-year-olds move around a lot when they sleep and wind up in funny and cute positions? And how if you sleep with them, you sometimes end up with a foot or a butt in your face? Well, it isn't so cute when they are 8 and still in your bed, but taking up a lot more room, and you get kicked or punched all the time. So you have to feel bad for Indy Cysive, whose 8-year-old happened to be a chimpanzee who still insisted on sleeping in Indy's bed every night. Indy had even bought a special bed just for Harry the chimp, but every night when she tried to put Harry in it, he whimpered and wrapped his arms around her. Indy secretly missed those chimp baby years when he had needed her so much, and she was too much of a codepetent to say no to Harry. So the expensive pet bed remained unused. And almost every morning, Indy woke to find a fuzzy arm draped over her face. At least Harry was willing to keep his diapers on, since he did weigh 150 pounds by then.

Etymology: codependent + pet

Baadfellow

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: baad fel lo

Sentence: Baaraack Obaamaa had shared Cissie & Oscar's bed since he was a little lamb. Every night he jumped up onto the spread and cuddled in and became their baadfellow. The only problem was that now he was full grown and weighed a good 200 pounds, there was no room for him...he could no longer pull the wool over their eyes. Every night was an udder nightmare, as he kicked like Dan Merino in his sleep. "How can we tell him he's not human and needs to go into the farmyard and find himself a wife?", asked Cissie. "We just set him out and make him find his own way...it's tough love!", said Oscar. They enjoyed about 6 months of peace, until one cold night, their door was rammed open and in walked Baaraack Obaamaa, his Embraceable Ewe and their triplet lambs: Rambo, Ewelysses and José Fleeciano. It was when they all piled onto Cissie & Oscars bed and settled in for a nice warm sleep that Cissie & Oscar realized one thing. You really cannot get to sleep by counting sheep!

Etymology: Bedfelow (someone you share a bed with) & Baa (a sheep's cry)

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.
