Overlappinglish Partwo

See here for the original Overlappinglish charter. Unfortunately the third entry below does not quite follow the rules. I will call it Overlappinglish slang.

Abundance + dancer = abundancer: one who dances abundantly.

Mousetrap + trapezoid = mousetrapezoid: a trapezoid with a mousy shape.

Liquidity + idiot = liquidiot: one who keeps all their savings in cash instead of buying into high-yield investments. As in, "Don't be a liquidiot."

Clobber + bury = clobbury: murder by clobbering, followed by burial to cover up the evidence.

Nostril + trilogy = nostrilogy: the study of nostrils.

Woodchuck + chuckle = woodchuckle: the laugh of a woodchuck.

What's the "tri" in "nostrilogy" stand for? The study of people who have three nostrils? :)

Don't you mean "one with buns who dances"?

And hey, isn't Greg Mankiw your wool-scarf friend? He was on tonight's Fresh Air.

Don't you mean "mousetrap + trapezoid"?

And the definition for abundancer should be someone who wiggles their buns excessively while dancing.

Nostrilogy ought to be a series of mystery books about hound dogs.

How about: clobberate--(1)clobber with words;(2) severely berate. (Actually sort of a redundancy of both words). "I hope you're never clobberated for expressing your honest opinions"

I thought you meant to say "mousetrap" and "trapezoid"...maybe a mousetrap in the shape of a trapezoid?

But Freakwenter, you mustn't sit on it like that, all corrected. You want to get your buns pinched bad?
