Sentence: The big day to meet the parents had been set and Alice nervously brought her Mr. Right home. Her father Ned was very curious about the man who could capture his little princess' heart.

When they arrived at the door, Ned was unprepared for the unkempt, illiterate, grimy trogolodyte who Alice had driven over. His name was Albert Capone, he grunted in answer to her father's pointed questions and leered at Alice's Mom, Phyllis in an entirely inappropriate way, while necking with Alice. Mr Right turned out to be Mrrightoutofleftfield, a caring father's nightmare. Alice would hear no bad things about him from her Dad and thought he was being unfair. She finally saw the light, literally, when the FBI Helicopter spotlighted their home and many agents swarmed them arresting Al on the spot for multiple charges including income tax evasion. Ned has now taken charge of finding a suitable replacement for Albert. Afterall, Father knows best.

Perrant

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: per ant

Sentence: Julius was always too perrant when he came into a new relationship.

They would laugh after and celebrate his candor and ferocity. Then they'd fetch beers, and he'd ask for the wrong brand; he'd be home drinking his watered down drivel while the family enjoyed a nice cool refreshing

Etymology: parent + errant (+ pair?)

Today's definition is inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Neanderthal trilogy, Hominids, Humans and Hybrids. (We couldn't go through the whole RJS week without mentioning Neanderthals!) It's a story of two parallel worlds -- a human one and a Neanderthal one. The story pivots around the romantic tension between a female human and male Neanderthal. How about that for spicing up the gene pool? And I wonder what their parents would think? Thanks to Rob for the great story, and the inspiration. ~ James
