Pronunciation: bloōsnēz

Sentence: Bill thought he’d play his famous bleusneeze prank on his new girlfriend, leaving the cap loosened on the bottle of salad dressing so that she would spray it all over herself when she shook it. The joke was just as funny (or funnier) when she reached for the bottle, tipped it over and spilled the contents in Bill’s lap. Unsure if she did it on purpose or not, he quietly screwed the lids back on the salt and pepper shakers.

Etymology: bleu cheese (cheese containing veins of blue mold, such as Gorgonzola and Danish Blue) + sneeze (make a sudden involuntary expulsion of air from the nose and mouth due to irritation of one’s nostrils)

Pronunciation: vin ee re gret

Sentence: Rosemary knew that her husband Basil was up to his old tricks again. Despite his being warned of the consequences. When she went to take out the salad dressing from the fridge, he had loosened the lid so that she would have a vinairegrette if she tried to shake the bottle. Luckily she was on to him and decided that payback was long overdue. She would artichoke him, then beet him, pepper him with a salt and they'd eventually find his chard romaines in her backyard, where there was not mushroom. Yes, Basil would vinairegrette his capers and rue the day he'd given Rosemary such a hard thyme!

Etymology: Vinaigrette (oil and vinegar salad dressing with mustard and garlic) & Regret (feel remorse for; feel sorry for; be contrite about)
