Physicruel

Pronunciation: fizz ick! crew ull

Sentence: "Let me check you over" Dr. Max M. Rough said. He measured and pressured, prodded and poked, nudged and budged, thrust and dug, then jabbed and stabbed, finally shooting my body with concotions of innoculations and vaccinations ... all those hurtful 'tions' ... I wished I could shun! During the mammogram, I wish I could slam a gram, or two, of his most tender flesh between those smashing, mashing plates! When he was done, I asked him "Why does a good going over have to feel so bad? Why is a physical so physicruel?"

Hippocalyptic

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hip pok a lip tik

Sentence: It was with a hippocalyptic feeling that Henry went to the only doctor in town. Being a newcomer, Henry was unaware that most locals did not see old Doc Sawyer Bones. They went to the City Hospital instead. Henry's pain and discomfort at going to a new doctor was only overshadowed by the extreme abdominal pains which had attacked him for the past few hours. It was only when he was counting backwards from 100 that he spied the certificate on the wall...Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine. He just hoped that he'd not wake up and find himself neutered!

Etymology: Hippocratic (an oath taken by physicians to observe medical ethics deriving from Hippocrates...first do no harm!) & Apocalypic (prophetic of devastation or ultimate doom;dread)

Toothordare

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tooth or der

Sentence: Each time Wendell went to see his family dentist, Dr. Payne, he felt like he was playing toothordare. Just because Dr.Payne was in his eighties, was cross-eyed and had shaky hands, somehow Wendell felt weak and vulnerable. Dr.Payne also had a sense of humor and never failed to mention that he had a lot of pull or was trying not to look down in the mouth. His family had gone to Dr. Payne for years, and all just because Wendell's Granny had dated him. The old gal had always called Dr. Payne, brace yourself, The Leader of the Plaque!
