My Obfuscatory Sentence

Obfuscatory Sentence - A long sentence with no apparent meaning, often containing made-up words and a straying from the original topic.

I had to write an "obfuscatory sentence" for my creative writing class this week, and I was so pleased with it I thought I would share it with you. I am delaying the post about the hard freeze because my pre-calculus homework took a long time to do, and I don't have time to write it tonight. (In case you haven't figured it out, I write my posts ahead of time and just publish them early in the morning.) So, now for my obfuscatory sentence...

The capitulating water ventriculated through the incredible bolzaca of sitrentoc trees, through the compenzulation of yufurbenators that bolezened high into the menzaca, through which the flewbers flewbed and the geebers geebed, as the bloibers bleebed and the bloobers bloobed, as if they had some kind of happiness unknown to man, but kind of known to women, especially to liberal femenists who delight in the kind of bleebing and bloobing that so many find beautiful, but so many others find as disgusting as the pile of feces that was left by your little dog in the living room over one week ago, and the smell and the stain that is left behind afterward.

Yikes. I can think of lectures from teachers here at college that would DEFINITELY fit that definition, as they seem to just be one long, run on sentence with no apparent point. Nice work

What paint said. It also reminds me of some politicians and other pseudo-intellectual 'talking heads'. Good job!

Paintsmh said...

Yeah. I didn't think of those. And definitely a lot of politicians at election time.

sophie - mmmmhmmm.

Good grief, no wonder my son is freaking out over the FCAT writes if that is what his English teachers are teaching him! I give it a 5 out of 5 points. You pass 10th grade! :0)

How did y'all fare through the storms, HurTeen? Lots of bodacious weather here, but no tornadoes, PTL!

cathy - That was from my creative writing class...we have very unusual (but fun) writing prompts. Florida Writes is much less fun.

sophie - We got through it with just some rain, a little thunder, and a little wind. I was supposed to go out into the swamp yesterday morning, but we got so much rain, I imagine it's pretty muddy.
