7) Sadness
8) Excitement
9) Confusion; i.e., the dichotomy of mixed emotions

We haven't had a TWISTED LINGUISTICS Storytime in a while. I think it's high time we rectify that. Here are the Words Gone Wild we have to work with:

humna
greast
whooips
shamfull
mabey
herslef
leabians
unphased
karokee
coaxil
sinched
5 minuets away
klike
the personell is cocky ill mannert and potentious to costomers
imbred marrages


And here's the story I think they suggest:

Once upon a time, there was a faux gang filled with shamfull women who took great joy in implementing, in no particular stages, unphased whooips. Some of the members were girly-girl in a soft pink and white way, and some were rough and tumble and, well, perhaps just a tad androgynous. Their leader was a chick called Mabey, she her being a slef and an avowed activist for the fabled Leabians League. They leabed a lot, but not much else was known about them.

One night the gang was bored and decided to go out to a karokee bar for beer and pancakes drenched in Karo syrup. Things were going okay until Mabey took the mic and someone insulted her singing. Suddenly, there was a humongous humna going on and, when someone grabbed Mabey's slick greast and pinched her left slef, things took a downward spiral. She turned to the nearest ruffian, never mind that they all looked like products of imbred marrages plopped down in an oasis, and knocked him on his coaxil. Soon, the whole gang was involved in the imbroglio and blood and teeth were flying everywhere until the bartender, Ched, finally got fed up and yelled, "Klike! Klatu! Whatever! Y'all stop that fighting before I sic the barmaid, Nell, on you. You all are about 5 minuets away from going to jail! Now, pipe down, put on costumes, and either sing happy songs or dance sinfully, damn it!" At that point, somebody familiar with and scared of the Junoesque Nell's reputation fed a quarter into the jukebox. A waltz began to play, and everyone picked themselves up, bowed to their partners, and commenced to dancing slowly and carefully as Nell looked on, glowering menacingly through the eye slits of her mask.

"Hmph!" declared Mabey. "You call that sin, Ched? That's dancing, Nell? Whooips! That's some bad vibrations, you kliker. Whooips this! Let's blow this joint, girls. The personell is cocky ill mannert and potentious to costomers and we don't have to stay here and put up with this unphased abuse."

And they all went home for snacks of potentious tea and humna before heading out back for some sinched in the shed.

You know what, G? Although your answers don't exactly define the parameters of the listed emotions, I like them. A lot. When Cape Fear and New Orleans are mentioned in the same breath, what's not to like?! And hell's bells, I even got a haiku out of you. Yeah!:)

Mabey took a look at Herslef. Herslef of course asked what the heck she thought she was looking at.
Mabey's reply was "I'm looking at a karokee tribe wannabe, whose dancing end is 5 minuets away."

Herslef spread more humna on her pita and harumphed. "If I were younger, I'd scratch your eyes out, but the Coaxil(tm) I took this morning keeps me calmer these days. As it affects my electroencephagraphy my alpha waves are unphased."

"Well, we leabians and the rest of the conservatives don't like your kind. Fact is conservatives don't like any kind but their own." Mabey was letting Herslef have it. "You're nothing more than shamfull of dust bunnies and a maid where the personell is cocky ill mannert and potentious to costomers."

"At least I don't get all greast up and have a bunch of kids trying to catch me."

"Whooips! That sinched it, your intelligence is the result of imbred marrages and other optical illusions."

"And you're nothing more that a klike."

The next day's headlines read "Double Murder at Mentally Challenged Dance."
