Eclectruthic

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: i-klek-TROOTH-ik

Sentence: Friday night's Happy Hour was an eclectruthic time for Bob and his best mates, Sizza and Kuz. With the Tetley's Smoothflow, Moosehead, Foster's and a few other brands of "truth serum" flowing freely, all kinds of truths fitted together ecumenically. And, as the evening rolled on, this tried-and-true trio: a Kiwi, a Ruskie and a Yobbo, in perfect harmony and absolutely right about everything, solved the problems of humanity in just under three hours.

Etymology: ECLECTIC: selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas; TRUTH: faithfulness, quality of being true.
