Etymology: besotted, Becks

Pronunciation: /sel-leb-BAR-nuh-kul/

Sentence: Most people felt a little bit sad for Rose, because she was such a celebarnacle, reading all of the gossip rags and watching the entertainment news — she was a real pop-culture parasite. Due to her celebsession, she could tell you more stories about Britney Spears' social life than about experiences from her own, lonely life.

Etymology: celebrity - a famous or well-known person (from Latin, celeber "frequented, populous") + barnacle - marine crustacean that clings to the bottoms of ships (likely from Celtic-Breton, bernik "a type of shellfish")


Barnacle! I was thinking of going for some sort of parasite, but now I'm glad I didn't. This is perfect. - ErWenn, 2008-02-15: 09:36:00

The last 19 words of your sentennce, like your verbot, sticks in the mind! Everlasting creation! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 10:43:00

Tigger im so sorry for using your celebsession, but i didnt know it wa in your sentence! great word by the way! - dalmero8, 2008-02-15: 14:35:00

No problemo, dalmero8. I was debating over using 'celebsession' vs. 'celebarnacle' and, well, I've been thinking about an upcoming cruise, craving lobster, and my mind's been 'out to sea' lately. So I guess that explains my choice... - Tigger, 2008-02-15: 21:50:00

I guess she read all the celebrags with rosey-coloured "barnacles!" Nice word. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-17: 17:02:00

Tigger, great idea! Did you think of it when you were hanging out with Demi/Ashton/Bruce at Sundance or as a guest at Eddy Murphy's fake wedding or schmoozing with Heidi and Seal at that Versace Fashion thingy?? Do tell, enquiring minds want to know...

Tigger - 2008-02-15: 02:46:00
Oh, the Versace thing! Wasn't that just absolutely fab? All my peeps were there and... Well no, I wasn't actually there, but I uh — I read all about it. I could've gone, but I was still distraught over the Pam Anderson divorce. [Ok, I'm giving myself the creeps now — I hate people who talk like that!]
