kashman

Created by: kashman

Pronunciation: anee-mun-sea-ate

Sentence: Lauren has always been an animal lover. Her parents supported her animunciation hoping that it's just a phase in her growing up life. But when they were told by Lauren's teachers that she animunciates with the rats and frogs in her school's biology lab, they knew something was wrong. Later on when she went to college and one Thanksgiving week they received a call from her that she is bringing "someone" with her, it got them all excited. Finally, the Thanksgiving day arrived and the door bell rang; Lauren's parents opened the door beamingly to find her animunciating with a dog!

Petagogue

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: PET ah gog

Sentence: The reason Ann Noy talks with animals is that no people WANT to talk with her. She is a petagogue, spewing her dog-ma all the time. She talks until she's horse. People are too cowed by her obviously superior intelligence to ox her what she's talking about, and it's too difficult to ferret out the meaning. Everyone ducks when they see her coming, and they just want to bat her away. So she long ago gave up trying to figure out why people were so catty about her, and retreated, tortoiselike, to her cocoon to live out her days as an animal whisperer.

Etymology: pet + pedagogue (a person who teaches, instructs, or talks in a manner that is excessively dogmatic, shows off his or her learnedness or overemphasizes minor details)

Zooracle

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: zho-or-ah-kil

Sentence: "The Master demands a sacrifice, David," said Harvey, his canines bared as he paced along the fence next door, "He finds your limited faith insufficient." The labrador stopped and stared through the chain links at him vacantly. David held his head in his hands. Could this be happening? Was he a zooracle or just losing his mind? Either way, he had to silence the persistent animal, so he would silence him with sacrifice. "My fealty to the dark lord will be apparent by this afternoon." He disappeared into house and grabbed his .44 caliber Bulldog revolver, and stalked to his car. The tires squealed and the Ford Galaxie sped off into the city. When the car was a waning mirage the two teenage boys stepped out from behind Sam Carr's house, cackling with laughter and holding a walkie-talkie. "That Berkowitz kid is an IDIOT!" the taller of the two said, as they walked to the black lab and unstrapped the other handset from the dogs collar.

Etymology: zoo - prefix relating to animals, oracle - a chosen person who can interpret normally unintelligible communications from non-human sources

COMMENTS:

I considered 'oracle' as a component. I was thinking along the lines of, 'animoracle.' Nice combination. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:27:00

oh...my...god. er, dog. - stache, 2008-03-28: 01:38:00

excellent - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-28: 11:24:00

Wow, Banky! Very imaginative theory on the 'Son of Sam' serial killer story, (in case anyone didn't catch that), and, I might add, chillingly morbid. Great stuff. - Tigger, 2008-03-30: 03:42:00
