synonyms:  arise, birth, derive, discharge, egress, emerge, emit, exhale, exit, exude, flow, initiate, issue, originate, proceed, radiate, rise, send forth, spring, stem

Instead of a crocodayl, a woman is more likely. Or a woman's.  ;D

3. hobosexual
The opposite of metrosexual; one who cares little for one's own appearance.

4. mid-day crisis
