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.
