Fuzzmunnies

Fibercentricks

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fy bur sen trix

Sentence: It started when George T. Sampson invented the clothes dryer on June 7, 1892. His invention lint itself to, well, lint. Lint had never been manufactured in such large quantities before. This gave the idea to doctors that dryers seem to run better when they had lots of fiber. Perhaps that theory would work for humans, too. Analyzing the end product was the study of fibercentricks. Running trace evidence of dryer fiber gave scientists and criminologists the evidence that both socks had entered the dryer at the same time, but only one came out. Have all these missing socks been turned into piles of fluffy, fiberous lint? Or did Mr. Sampson have a more sinister trick up his sleeve when he made his now famous invention? This would be a hard case to unravel...

Etymology: Fibre (a thread or filament from which a plant or animal tissue, mineral substance, or textile is formed;dietary material containing substances such as cellulose, that are resistant to the action of digestive enzymes) & Cybercentrics (meeting of business ideas with the broadcast opportunutues of cyberspace) & Tricks (an attempt to get you to do something foolish or imprudent)
