Xenocturnalia

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ze-noc-tur-na-li-a/

Sentence: Sleeping on the same bed with Clarisse Starling is one thing, but this was above and beyond the XENOCTURNALIA that Daizy the Sheep signed up for when it joined agent Starling to be a true and faithful sidekick. As Hannibal Lecter smiled and whispered his customary: “Good evening Clarisse,” the poor lamb went silent and quietly left the bedroom.

Etymology: XENO - prefix that usually refers to an across-species process or act (e.g. XENOtransplantation; XENOgraft); NOCTURNAL - night-related, usually sleep related; -ALIA - a suffix reserved for a ritual of a sexually suggestive nature (e.g. SaturnALIA)

Bedgehog

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /bej-hog/

Sentence: Bandit had started out as a cute Border Collie puppy, but now he'd grown into a huge bedgehog. Not only did Bandit hog all the pillows and yank the comforter to the other side of the bed, but he had literally pushed Stewart out of his own bed three nights in a row. Stewart decided to seek professional help, and started wondering how hard it was to contact that 'It's Me Or the Dog' lady. What was her name again?...

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

Menagerieatrois

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: men a jah ree a twa

Sentence: When Angus moved in with Cattelena, he herd that her bovine was to menagerieatrois with them. Sometimes he wished he had been more of a maverick and had had time to ruminate; take a poll or gotten a Papal Bull about the hayrrangement. Suddenly, phrases like "Hit the Hay", "BedSpread", "Counterpain", "Rustling the sheets", "Udder ecstasy", "Beef Tongue", "Ranch Dressing", "Ride a Limousin" and "DetOX" took on a whole new meaning for him. And many's a night he awoke Friesian because someone had steered the covers off him or he had a very sharp pain in his calf! Every morning, there was a stampede for the bathroom. At this rate,and with his short horn, he would never be a fodder.

Etymology: menage a trois ("sleeping" arrangement of 2 with a third participant, wink, wink, nod, nod, say no more, a wink's as good as a nod to a blind horse) & menagerie (a facility where animals are kept)

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)
