Manoeuphoria

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: mahn-o-u-for-e-a

Sentence: "We have a name for it," the doctor had said, "manoeuphoria." All her life Bridget had felt only a slight guilt and unease whenever she stuck her hand into containers of small, cool, round, but firm, objects. They were especially pleasurable on a hot summer's day. She couldn't stop herself. Her first indulgence had come in childhood when she would stick her hand--she always prefered her left--into the large jar of buttons in her grandmother's sewing room. Later, when she was older, she had done the same with the peas, rice and other legumes her parents stored in the storm cellar of their farmhouse in Kansas. Now that she was a famous actress in New York City, the gourmet jelly beans she kept in the half-barrel by her bedside didn't quite produce the same high, but she had her memories. It had been a long process describing her feelings to the doctor, but in her last session she had been able to tell him she knew what it was to be one with a waterfall.

Etymology: From manos, for hand; euphoria, for intense happiness

Podifeelya

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: pod-i-feel-ya

Sentence: One of the oddest of behavioral disorders, podifeelya, is becoming more and more of a problem for grocers. Podifeels have the urge or fantasy to fondle legumes and may actually go up to unwatched barrels of the little veggies and thrust their hands in to experience a "rush" or release of tension. Grocery employees who witness this activity should confront the podifeel and demand that they pay for the entire barrel since this is unsanitary and really disgusting. (This unusual behavior should not be confused with arthritipods -- old Hippies, Deadheads and Tree huggers who will microwave bags of organic rice or beans for arthritis relief rather than use unholistic medicines.)

Etymology: (wordplay on podophilia - foot fetish, one of the paraphilia disorders in which a person has fantasies and attractions to non-sexual parts of the body such as feet or legs) pod: "leg"ume such as peas, beans, etc. + I + feel + ya (you)
