Spotluck

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: spot/luk

Sentence: Muffy the poodle had gotten used to the fact that family parties were no longer a smorgasbord of tasty delights. Ever since her family was introduced to the "If you pick it up within five seconds AND kiss it up to God it is clean and safe to eat" by that little brat Megan, Muffy had not enjoyed the family potlucks much anymore. She has settled however for the first hour or so, when all the guests are gone and the Mom person is cleaning up. The spotluck that is left behind by all the "five second" droppings isn't as filling, but almost as tasty.

Etymology: From Potluck: A potluck is a gathering of people where each person is expected to bring a dish of food to be shared among the group.

Graviteat

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: grav it eet

Sentence: It got to be too much for Julie. Taking her partner Matt out to trendy cocktail parties and other social outings were too embarrassing for her. You see, Matt would graviteat anything that he "accidentally" dropped on the ground. The first ten or twenty times it happened one could put down to clumsiness. But it now became apparent to Julie that he was doing it on purpose. He finally admitted to her that he loved to floorage for food...it somehow tasted better to him. She would have to find him a support group, like Parqueteaters Anonymous or ThirsaTiles or LinoleYum or Carpet Consumers and their Underlaying Causes. If she didn't, there would be no Welcome, Matt.

Etymology: Gravity (The force of attraction between the Earth's mass for bodies near its surface) & Gravitate (be attracted to;move toward) & Eat (consume food)
