Bendaholic = me.


Actually, a bendaholic is what happens when you give some copper wire to a bored person and they discover they love bending it back and forth till it breaks so much, they wind up never accomplishing anything useful. Some bendaholics do get work, however, employed with electricians who are snipperloseiacs (keep misplacing their wire cutters).

cryinanalysis

To determine the health of the endocrine gland, laboratory testing requires that a patient submit a cryinanalysis tear sample by weeping into a small plastic tube. Patients who complain that they don't have the urge to cry are either handed an onion to peel or required to watch The Color Purple over and over again until they are weeping buckets.

liapaed

this is obscure indeed. but old shakey's classical acumen is not easily baffled, even by an allusion as orphic as this. a liapaed is one of three adenoidal sisters, daughters of liapeas, the mouth breathing guardian of the opuntian underworld. the sisters were assigned to torment ajax the lesser, or locrian ajax, for the rape of Cassandra. the sisters, complete with platinum bubbles and matching chiffon scarves, would sing off key mo-town hits in ajax' ear as he tried to pilot his ship back to locris. it was their plaintive, warbling rendition of "my guy" that finally caused ajax to lose the his grip and founder his ship, impaling himself on the rocky coast of leuke island. --s6

Lumpicker
Ahhh, Woof, ye take us back to the Court of King Pheelopholos. King Pheel, as he was known to his loving subjects, was a big fan of the sultry sounds of the Lum; a 125 string instrument so soft sounding that the instrumentalist had to hum along in harmony. These rare musicians were called Lumpickers. They were all killed and buried with their Lums when King Pheelopholos was blinded by a snapped lumstring.

semipendiculoric

Managers of diet clinics and fat camps weigh in their clients weekly on the pendiculoric scale to determine weight loss or gain. If a client has gained weight, the weight meter reads maxipendiculoric while a light flashes and an alarm goes off. The client is then punished by having to spend an extra 6 hours on the treadmill. However, if the client has lost weight, the meter reads semipendiculoric, soft classical music plays, and the client is rewarded with an extra slice of tofu.
