If there is anyone else out there who enjoys playing with words, I offer you this - Impressive sounding Latin/Greek wording for common expressions. Dazzle your friends at parties!

Monolithic biavicide: killing two birds with one stone
Felinolingual seizure: cat got your tongue
Chronopantraumatherapy: time heals all wounds
Vitrodomopetrojection: throwing a stone from a glass house
Xanthogaster: yellowbelly
Postovular gallinomics: counting your chickens after they hatch

LOL, Hobie those are some tongue twisters! The only thing that would dazzle my friends is the number of knots tied in my tongue trying to spit that tangle out! Wowzers, who talks like that?

Phraseology can be just as much fun using only English.Such as "In polluted purgatory without proper means of locomotion".
