Flotsophage

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: FLOT-so-FAGE

Sentence: SickVic was a textbook example of an unrepentant FLOTSOPHAGE.In most social settings he appeared quite normal, but if he saw the smallest particle of food fall, he went down faster than Bush's approval ratings, often intercepting the wayward morsel before if hit the food court floor. One time he inhaled a FLOTSOPHAGE before it was even identified as one of Sookie's artificial fingernails. SickVic hasn't been seen lately, and legend has it he is presently a resident in the cafeteria at Doctor Beddow's Institute for the Culinarily Challenged.....and a more revolting "challenge of the day" I have not seen.

Etymology: FLOTSOm + PHAGE= FLOTSOPHAGE.....FLOTSOM:miscellaneous or unimportant material unintentionally jettisoned or dropped (as opposed to JETSAM:deliberately cast overboard)Anglo-French floteson, from floter to float, of Germanic origin; akin to Old English flotian to float, flota ship.....-PHAGE: suffix meaning "to eat" (latin)
