Spillunching

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: spil-lənch-ng

Sentence: Harry was so clumsy that if he didn't believe in spillunching, he would have to almost double his food budget. He loved to cite the 5-second rule as he did his best to extract any dog hair or other foreign matter that may have come along for the ride. What he couldn't understand was why people always wanted to ask him if he had ever been caving.

Etymology: spill (cause or allow (liquid) to flow over the edge of its container) lunching (a meal eaten in the middle of the day) derivative of the word spelunking (the exploration of caves, esp. as a hobby)
