Lineoleyum

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lin o lee yum

Sentence: Barry hated to waste food. He did not know why, but if it fell on the floor, it tasted a bit better. It was embarrassing to go anywhere with him, as he devoured this lineoleyum no matter who was watching...it was even more embarrassing when he did it at his wife's boss's parties!

Etymology: Linoleum (floor covering) & Yum (exclamation when something looks/tastes delicious)
