Staretle

Pronunciation: steyr till

Eyesickle

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: AHY-si-kuhl

Sentence: The icy glare of the glass eye Bob got from the KGB Disposal's shop in Moscow was as chilly as a Siberian winter. And out of the shadows of darkness, Roxie swore that it was watching her. Often she would wake from sleep and yelled, " My God! It knows what I dreaming about." Bob told her not to worry, that the Cold War was now but an icicle and she was reading too much Orwell. Furthermore as he was so happy with his eyesickle, and having heard about a new Russian made prosthesis, named: "glassnose", he was thinking of ordering one also.

Etymology: Blend of EYE & SICKLE, with ICICLE in mind.

You'd think Bob would get pink eye from such a creation. I'm sure Roxy will find a way of Stalin, instead of letting Bob go Russian out to buy a new nose! It would be quite a Tass to blow his glassnose without breaking it! I am sure he could buy a couple of moles from that KGB Shop, too! Great sentence, Comrade!(Or should I say Tovarich!) - Nosila, 2008-03-18: 20:04:00

Bedrheumeyes

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bed room ize

Sentence: Buck was one of those cats with bedrheumeyes. He would watch you sleep all night until his penetrating, watery glances would stare you awake. When he did this to his owner, Lauren,she knew upon waking 2 things for sure...A) Buck had used his bedrheumeyes on her and B) He wanted her to let him out, now! If Lauren ignored him, it was at her peril, for he would leave some bodily fluids or other masses in her bed. Phrases like "The Buck stops here" and "She would do anything for a Buck" originated with Lauren...

Etymology: Bed (where one sleeps at night) & Rheum (A watery or thin discharge, of serum or mucus, especially from the eyes, especially from eye strain or infection) & Eyes (The windows to the soul;peepers;optical organs of sight)

Sentence: Although I had clearly told my daughter that she was not to wake me up early on Christmas morning, I felt her gazerbeam focused on me, cutting through my dreams, and opened my eyes to see her staring at me.
