Graindiosity

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: grain - dee - ah - city

Sentence: The stress of impending meetings and inane mission statements vanished in one fell swoop; the smooth soy ravaging her in sensational grandiosity.

Etymology: Grain + Grandiosity.

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

I wanted to combine the word grand and grain, but it didn't seem to well. Graind. But grandiosity means, using synonyms loosely, feeling really great about not a whole lot, and grains because the things mentioned were granular. But granular and grand and/or grandiose didn't really work. Grand. Pretty sure I've seen that word before. Grandule...? No, no, graindiosity's fine. - jadenguy, 2007-05-28: 19:52:00

great - it encompasses all grains - Jabberwocky, 2007-05-29: 08:45:00

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)
