Pronunciation: Mess Cat ology

Sentence: Leonard was a man of deeply held convictions. Through obsessively cleaning and ordering everything he sought to rid the world of chaos, and thus change and progress. Once everything was thusly (de)filed, his dreams would be realised: the end of civilisation as we know it! Tuesday presented Leonard with an opportunity. Penny, a kind hearted and gentile soul from across the hall had invited him for dinner. While the disorganised Penny unpacked her groceries, Leonard attempted to move one step closer to his goal by relieving Penny of Sheldon's litter box detritus. Sheldon however had agendas of his own, namely the detritus that had collected in Leonard's head. Feline hissery and chaos ensued, and instead of hitting the fan, the contents of Sheldon's litter box, along with Leonard, hit the floor. Later as Leonard wandered home he pondered the evenings events. The mission had been thwarted, but his will remained iron clad. He would reaffirm his faith and end his evening with another reading from the book of Messcatology.

Etymology: Eschatology - pertaining to bringing about the end of days, Biblical style. Mess - a disorderly state of affairs. Cat - the reference to the genus Felis Catus is (almost) entirely coincidental

But the reference to "The Big Bang Theory" was deliberate...
