I just learned the word locavores, the word for people (excuse me, culinary adventurers) committed to eating locally, say, within a 100-mile radius.
It was the 2007 Word of the Year of the Oxford Amercan Dictionary.
Little did I know I'm so yesterday.
Locavore. It has a certain ring to it, don't you thnk? It sounds like a tourist destination on Spain's Costa del Sol.
All of this reminds me it's time for The Laughorist to coin some words, just for fun.
Jump in. Try your hand. There's plenty of room in this pool.
finavores -- sharks on Wall Street eating up all your retirement so-called money.
amoravore -- one who is famished for love.
toreavore -- one who feeds on bullshit (cf. bullivore).
pairavore -- one who eats two of everything.
hurtivore -- one who feeds on others' pain.
I need your help.
Why am i sticking to the -avore suffix?
