The dinkum is truly a sexist monster. Honest! The dinkum is only interested in the male members of the human race. It quietly creeps into their shorts and causes them to suffer from a condition best known as balanoposthitis. The only way to get rid of the dinkum's scourge is amputation!

An insidious bacterial infection, specific to mallards, buffleheads and other migratory waterfowl. It messes with their migratory instincts, causing them to fly south in summer and north in winter.

An anacampserote is, in essence, one's virginity. An invisible spirit, it haunts the places into which it was lost, seeking to relive the moment. Generation after generation it will draw teenagers from the same family to the same "make-out spot" and show them the 'meaning of life'.

aside: I'll have to consider adding encliticization to the collection, although it might be just a tad too worthless.

Encliticization is a haunting. Although it manifests as an affectation, it's caused by the ghosts of suicidal actors whose long exposure to the heavy smog of L.A. drove them to speak, as if. That same smog holds the spirits of these dead at street level and, like, forces them to network with the, like, living. Totally.

An erme is a small weevil that lives in beauty salon implements. Its favorite haunts are perm curlers, brushes and the inner mechanisms of hair-driers. Once contact is made to the hair of the host, the erme wastes no time putting a jinx on the style in progress. No matter how talented the beautician, the hairstyle will be a disaster, resulting in the depression of the host and a swift trip to a different beauty salon. Thus, the erme colony expands.
