Things That Look Like Other Things(Read Aloud in a Singsong Voice)
I'm a big fan of compound nouns - maybe it's the German in me. They lend themselves quite well to things that look like other things. Here are a few compound nouns that I wouldn't mind finding under the tree/in my nonexistant driveway this Christmas:
The BEARDRESS: It's a bear...and a dress. And it's three hundred and sixty dollarrrrs.
The majestic WHALEMOBILE: Ask me if I care if it's street legal.
The BANANAPHONE: I actually already have one. They are great for making your co-workers think you're an immature weirdo.
