mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: dis-mem-ber-meant

Sentence: Rosie would always pretend that her obviously self inflicted bruises and scrapes were no big deal. When she walked into a wall she tried to pass off the black and blue mark as makeup for her performance. When she had a burn mark from making a roast she said that she wanted to get a tatoo and thought she'd see what it looked like first. But the day she came in with two fingers missing after playing with the dog there was no way she could pass it off as dismembermeant.

Etymology: dismember(ment): to lose a limb, sever, amputate + meant: intended, purposeful

Lackcident

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lak sid dent

Sentence: The upper management at the Quick Letter Company, who made big signs, brought in a new edgy Health and Safety Program designed to reduce the injury rate at their manufacturing facility. They offered rewards like cash, merchandise and paid days off as incentives to those employees who had few or no missed days due to workplace injuries. The theory was great, the company would get compensation rebates for no lost times and raise safety awareness. The lost time days vanished and it appeared that they had broken all previous safety records on the job. It soon became evident, however, that people failed to report the work injuries in the hope of winning fabulous prizes. People smuggled in their own first aid kits and treated themselves secretly as each mishap occurred, and failed to report them. The management should have been more suspicious of employees with staples stuck in their fingers, nails protruding from feet and all manner of bruises and bumps not visible earlier in the day. The common response to "What happened to you?" was "It happened at home." Since they could prove no corruption of their program, it continued, with all it's suspicious events. Everything was fine until one day, when someone drove a forklift too quickly into a company sign and one of the metal letters in the words "Quick Letter Company" fell from a high height on a manager's head, embedded itself in his cranium and reduced him to a blinded, blethering fool. Yes, having a lackcident is fun until someone loses an "i"!

Etymology: Lack (not have, be without) & Accident (a mishap; especially one causing injury or death)

Bluffoon

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: bluff oon

Sentence: There is no fool like an oaf fool. Clum Sy blundered and blustered around, often hitting his clunkhead and falling down. He was constantly embarrasssed by his lumpy and broken bonehead, black eyes, split lips, and an occasional broken nose, when he accidentally struck it, because he put it where it shouldn't be. Rather than admit he was just a bumpling box boy, he would pretend he was a boxer, and hoped no one would realize he was just a bluffoon.

Etymology: BLUFF, BUFFOON. BLUFF - try to mislead others about some thing. BUFFOON - a bumbling clumsy person, such people often unintentionally hurt themselves. Clowns often act this way to make people laugh and America's Funniest Home Videos tv show has lots of videos of buffoons. /// The first line contains the parody of oaf fool for old fool. /// His name Clum Sy is said clumsy. /// Clunkhead is a blending of the clunking a lunkhead takes. /// Bumpling is a blending of the bumps one gets when bumbling around. ///
