Ecolinized

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ee kol ee nyzed

Sentence: Pathogenia thought she was alone in her abode. It was not until after she had had several showers in the less-than-new apartment that she felt crowded out. At first it was the odd spot or streak on the curtain or wall, but after a few days, she realized she was ecolinized by a different life form. Thank goodness for her new boyfriend, Mr. Klean.

At least until the mice, silverfish and cockroaches drop in for a visit...

Orangmoldgrok

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Or ang mold grok

Sentence: There she was calmly minding her business with a deep lathering of her armpits, her mind wandering into the next hour to compile a lengthy list of what she would, might wear. Her eyes focused on this queer orange smear on the tile. She peered closer through the steam. Her eyes focused once more, uncomprehendingly, as a languorous orangmoldgrok slipped down the length of her being. Then the dam broke loose and her larynx trembled, pouring forth a torrent of platitudes that continued until she realized there was no help in the coming. Now calm, she finished her shower and shuddered with relief as she stepped out of the stall. She had been orangmoldgrokked!

Etymology: Orange (the color of the fruit) & mold (rapidly replicating fungus) & grok (to understand)

Schnopulasm

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: SHH-nopp-yew-lazz-umm

Sentence: Claire's first weekend at her boyfriend's apartment went well enough- until she attempted to shower. Comfortably wrapped in a plush monogrammed guest towel and armed with high-end pseudoscintillating hydrating bogusflavinoid SHAMpoo, as well as a small beaker of realpoo, Claire got one sexy foot into the shower and was stopped cold by a severe SCHNOPULASM. She choked down her revulsion like a shot of Southern Comfort and backed away in disgust, repelled by the matured colony of living pestilence she had almost touched. Supressing her gag reflex, she opened the window and gasped for air until her SCHNOPULASM receded enough for logic to regain a toehold on her cosmetic saturated brain. Claire quickly doused the entire shower stall with a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and fled from the deadly vapours for the relative safety of the bedroom and her industrial-sized bottle of generic booze. As Claire's brain slipped quietly into a comforting bath of ethyl alcohol, her SCHNOPULASM began to recede, but she knew that it just wouldn't work. If alcohol hadn't killed HER by now, what chance did it have against the hybrid orange slime just a few deadly feet away?

Etymology: No etymology. SCHNOPULASM is entirely fictitous and based upon the silliness of it's sound.

metrohumanx I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the defense budget and the Russians and crime in the street. All I know is first you['ve] got to get mad.

zxvasdf A garden that is overgrown needs more nutrient, and not getting that, it dies off the rest and leaves only the strong. Your life has value, yes, but in the big picture, it is a cog. I predict a massive die off real soon, be it by a human hand or the indifferent shrug of mother nature. - zxvasdf, 2008-09-29: 12:51:00

Mushgroom

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Mush-gr-oom

Sentence: Sally decided the only way to get rid of her hangover from the previous nights pub crawl was a good scrub in the shower.

Being short sighted she had not spotted the disgusting gooey mess before and therefore it had grown to quite a size. Her piercing screams coud be heard for miles, the police arrived expecting to attend a homicide and could not believe it when Sally explained what had actually happened.

Today we have a special "scary" definition just for Halloween. It was suggested by purpleartichokes, who not only sent in a photo of bathroom suffering from such an infestation (It is not hers!), but who also offered to model for today's comic. Thank you purpleartichokes! ~ James
