Blimpstaken

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Blimp ms taken

Sentence: Blimpstaken for the fifth time today, Tom pondered why circumstances, (he preferred to accuse Lady Destiny) thrust him towards lactating females who were not in fact lactating. He then wondered if his constant blimpstakes was his psyche trying to tell him something... he looked at his wife, shuddered, and turned over. Thank God for birth control! The next morning his wife was to exclaim that she was pregnant, and when confronted by an agonized Tom she admitted she had been off the pill for months, that she was tired of people coming up to her with congratulations for an non-existent pregnancy. "To say 'yes, thank you very much' for once, Tom! How wonderful that would make me feel!"

After she slapped him, at the Labor Day barbeque, he realized he was a victim of suggestation. Soon-to-be unemployed dunce that he was, he further joked in his Miss Prissy accent, "I don't know nothin' about babyin', Miss Scarlett!"

Mummawrong

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: muh m - ma-RONG

Sentence: Bob's chances for a Christmas bonus looked rather bleak after his momologue, congratulating his boss's wife on her impending motherhood, turned to profound embarassment; when she, without a pregnant pause, told him that he was mummawrong; and that, furthermore, both she and her husband were dinks- and intended to stay that way!

Etymology: Conflation of MUMMA, (mamma or momma), an informal word for mother & WRONG: not correct, in error. MOMOLOGUE (based on monologue) length speech about mothers and mothers-to- be.

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Great etymology. Mumma could also stem from mummy ... so this could have a really different daffynition like: being cursed for digging up the wrong mummy ... as in ... Digging up King Tut with it's curse was a real mummawrong. - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 15:21:00

Luv the daffynitions - keep them coming! - OZZIEBOB, 2007-12-13: 16:02:00

very nice play on words ... but the meaning could be mistaken for a man's padded belly while playing Santa.
