Stealthfood

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: stellth-food

Sentence: The scale gave a small muffled electronic scream when Andy brought his full weight to bear. He was just about done with trying to shape up; two weeks of treadmill and proper diet had led to a 5-pound gain. Unfortunately, Andy had been mistaken in his meal-selecting logic, and all of the sensible meals he had recently consumed were in fact stealthfoods. The 8-oz portion of fish the night before, for example, had come from an Eastern Stoned Lardwrasse. After a lazy afternoon on the reef smoking reefer, the fish had consumed a bag of Funyuns, 3 Big Macs, 2 orders of fries, a chocolate shake, and a carton of Haagen Daazs. Leaving his friends laughing in his enormous wake, calling him names like "Marlin Brando", the lardwrasse had groggily stumbled into a waiting net, his certain doom, and another veneer of fat on Andy's barely denim-constrained buttocks.

Etymology: stealth + food; ala healthfood

COMMENTS:

What a witty twist to come up with an eat-it-self-to-death fish that packs weight on humans! Topped off with a meaning full great pun! Excellent Won! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-19: 10:06:00

Now I know why I almost bought that bag of Bloomin' Onion Crisps at the store tonight. Bastard Banky! (Sorry James!) Nice word! - purpleartichokes, 2008-03-19: 20:55:00

Rolbax

Created by: Biscotti

Pronunciation: role-backs

Sentence: John couldn't figure out why he had a horrible case of the rolbax. He weighed himself every night before bed and then weighed himself every morning at about 5 pounds more than the previous day's start. He used the weight set day and night for weeks; and was ready to file a complaint to the company until his wife told him he had a horrible midnight snack attack every night...to which John replied, "But I only ate 5 pork chops, two gallons of ice cream and drank half a keg of beer..."

Etymology: roll (to move) + backs (coming back)

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Like those rollbacks at Walmart ... that keep creeping up on you! Best part of your words is the 'ax' ... for chopping fat off! Fun Won! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-19: 10:15:00

Created by: wayoffcenter

I know that artr used elepants in his sentence but I thought it was so much fun that it needed to compete on its own. :) - wayoffcenter, 2009-01-09: 09:00:00

artr Thanks for entering elepants. That's the first time I had someone pick up a secondary word from one of my sentences. - artr, 2009-01-09: 18:07:00

Reincarbnation

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: rē-inkärbnāshən

Sentence: It wasn't his fault. It was a matter of reincarbnation. The more Phat thought about it the more he believed in regirth. He must have been a sumo in a former life or perhaps a large animal. That would explain the hippobottomus. It was all in his jeans. After another fruitless trip to the gym, he went out and bought another pair of elepants.

Etymology: reincarnation (a person or animal in whom a particular soul is believed to have been reborn) + carb (short for carbohydrate)

Fridgimen

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fridj a men

Sentence: Martin was on a strict fridgimen to change his eating habits and body shape. Six times a day, he would vigorously stride (a cardio pulmonary exercise) to his refrigerator, open and close the door twenty times (to get a good upper body workout) and then bend over to get a beer from the bottom or reach up into the freezer to get an iced beer mug or ice cream treat (stretching exercises). He might also reach far into the back of the fridge (more stretching) to get cold fried chicken or lemon meringue pie out to eat. His theory was that if the food was cold, his body would have to burn more calories to warm it up so that he could digest it. Yes, his fridgimen was a good thermal workout and yet despite his fine muscle tone (for a 300 pound man) he never seemed to lose any weight. He just put it down to the fact that muscle weighed more than fat...

Etymology: Fridge (nickname for a refrigerator in which the coolant is pumped around by an electric motor, designed to keep foods cold) & Regimen ((medicine) a systematic plan for therapy (often including diet)

Girthumstances

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: GURTH-kuh.m-stansz

Sentence: Bob used every motivational tool and slimming trick out there in endeavouring to be trim, taut and terrific. And he believed that it was only a matter of time before he hit upon the right formula to overcome his adipose issue. However, friends discovered the unhoggable truth about his girthumstances; when, at 2am, they spotted him, somnambulatory, at his local all-night eatery, flaboyant in his dressing gown and slippers, ordering for himself enough food to feed a family of ten.

Etymology: Conflation of GIRTH:the distance around a persons body & CIRCUMSTANCES:The surrounding or pertaining facts, means, influences, etc.,especially asrelated to one's/ones support and way of living.

Killergrams

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kil ler gramz

Sentence: Melanie had tried everything to lose a few pounds, like Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Atkins, LA Weight Loss, Herbal Magic, Scarsdale, The Zone, heck even Oprah Winfrey's latest method. She visited their sites everyday, but lost not an ounce. She had also tried every possible fitness regime, too. But no matter what she tried, she still had those extra killergrams on her that she could not shed. She actually got a lot of exercise in her daily routine: she surfed the Net, jumped to conclusions, ran out of money, juggled her tasks, pushed her luck, drove her family mad and plowed through her paperwork, but still a thin body eluded her. How would she ever look as good as those women on the magazine covers in the grocery store? You know, the ones who stared back at you accusingly as you bought ice cream, pop, chips, candy and booze!

Etymology: Kilograms (metric weight unit of 1000 grams) & Killer (a difficulty that is hard to deal with;the causal agent resulting in death Example: "Heart disease is the biggest killer in America")
