Beepcreep

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: beep kreep

Sentence: The neighbors called Jeff, Captain Hornblower, because he never got out of his car when he called on Nancy. Her father thought him just a beepcreep, who showed no respect, because he'd never even bothered to meet the family when he first came calling on his daughter. One morning he woke up and thought somewone had been in his garage, but nothing seemed amiss. That is until he drove up to Nancy's house and pressed the car horn. Instead of the usual beep, the noise of a grunting pig bellowed throughout the neighborhood. The racket was so embarassing, he stopped pressing the horn. If only he'd bothered to meet Nancy's family, he would have learned that her brother was famous for his custom car horn jobs...

Etymology: Beep (a short high tone produced as a signal or warning;call, summon, or alert with a beeper;make a loud noise) & Creep (someone unpleasantly strange or eccentric
