VERBOTICISMS: (Invented words created by the Verbotomy Writers)
Fridgimen: /fridj a men/ Martin was on a strict fridgimen to change his eating habits and body shape. Six times a day, he would vigorously stride (a cardio pulmonary exercise) to his refrigerator, open and close the door twenty times (to get a good upper body workout) and then bend over to get a beer from the bottom or reach up into the freezer to get an iced beer mug or ice cream treat (stretching exercises). He might also reach far into the back of the fridge (more stretching) to get cold fried chicken or lemon meringue pie out to eat. His theory was that if the food was cold, his body would have to burn more calories to warm it up so that he could digest it. Yes, his fridgimen was a good thermal workout and yet despite his fine muscle tone (for a 300 pound man) he never seemed to lose any weight. He just put it down to the fact that muscle weighed more than fat… Etymology: Fridge (nickname for a refrigerator in which the coolant is pumped around by an electric motor, designed to keep foods cold) & Regimen ((medicine) a systematic plan for therapy (often including diet)
