Pronunciation: mil/doopt

Sentence: The twins were thrilled to be in their first and very own apartment. No more Mom and dad breathing down their necks or peeking out windows when dates were dropping them off. Their new place looked so good when it had the last tenants belongings in it. It somehow even looked cleaner than it really was. Molly's first shower sounded to Holly like a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock's movie Psycho. When Holly ran in to see what was going on, Molly was standing in the shower screaming and pointing, "LOOK! We've been milduped! This shower does did NOT originally match the peach colored walls and decor!"

Etymology: Mildew: A superficial coating or discoloration of organic materials caused by fungi, especially under damp conditions. Duped: slang for: To deceive

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)


metrohumanx I grok the hip malchiks shunrunning amok. horrorshow! - metrohumanx, 2008-09-29: 16:42:00

Oh well... found out. And they do clash with the orange slime. Guess I should decorate in Tangerines.
