A petuna bouquet: This week's contest is to coin a term for a life form whose name has no repeated letters. (Bob Staake/for The Washington Post )

Petuna: A flower that’s a bit too fragrant. (Jeff Shirley)

Iguano: The zookeeper’s least favorite reptile cage. (Jeff Shirley)

Womant: A creature who can lift many times her own weight but won’t tell you what that weight is. (Seth Brown, from a 2004 Invite contest to combine two animals.)

It’s been a couple of months since our last neologism contest, causing the English language to languish desperately until we saw fit to inject a couple of dozen new words into it. Our latest twist on the genre comes from Loser Jeff Shirley, who suggested this week’s contest: Name and describe a new life form — and no letter in the term may be used twice, as in the examples above. “Life form” is pretty vague on purpose; the E always appreciates creativity, and of course The Funny.

Winner gets the Inkin’ Memorial, the Lincoln statue bobblehead that is the official Style Invitational trophy. Second place receives a fascinating volume called “American Sex Machines: The Hidden History of Sex at the U.S. Patent Office”; it’s a look at hundreds of various devices reflecting “our national quest for sexual innovation,” from everything from whalebone corsets to condoms implanted with computer chips, and including some downright scary electrical gadgets. Donated by Loser John Hutchins, who swears that his Twitter handle is not @AmericanSexMachine.

Other runners-up win our new “You Gotta Play to Lose” Loser Mug or our Grossery Bag, “I Got a B in Punmanship.” Honorable mentions get one of our new lusted-after Loser magnets, “No Childishness Left Behind” or “Magnum Dopus.” First Offenders receive only a smelly tree-shaped air “freshener” (FirStink for their first ink). Deadline is Monday night, May 22; results published June 11 (online June 8). See general contest rules and guidelines at wapo.st/InvRules.
