Malapropel

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: mahl-APP-row-PELL (malapropeller)

Sentence: Hank was quite gross in his youth- and now he's so crude and uncouth. He hacked up some moisture- and launched a thick oyster- so hard it included his tooth. Yes, Hank the Skank would belittle- all those who would swallow their spittle- For him it was sport- to land one in the port- We hope that he gags on a Skittle. (Hank was a MALAPROPELLER of the worst kind. An unrepentant DISGUSTOLAUNCHER, he would decorate the sidewalk with loathome lung by-products, repellent dollops of drool and vulgar volumes of vile vapours, too.)

Etymology: MALAPROpos+proPEL= MALAPROPEL.....MALAPROPOS: in an inappropriate or inopportune way; French mal à propos (1668).....PROPEL: to drive forward or onward by or as if by means of a force that imparts motion;Middle English propellen, from Latin propellere, from pro- before + pellere to drive.

Rasputum

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: rah SPYU tum

Sentence: I don't really enjoy eating with my brother-in-law or sitting anywhere with him for any length of time, because he chews tobacco and seems to think it's OK to spit anywhere, at any time.

Worst of all, Rasputum, as I like to call him, somehow got my sister to pick up his nasty habits, too.

Etymology: sputum + Rasputin (a person who is felt to have an insidious and corrupting influence)
