Pronunciation: DEK-hor-ay-ter

Sentence: My friend, Wendy, is such a decwhorator that she has an entire month's worth of festive sweat shirts and sweaters.

Mammary, well, I think it's slightly obscene.

Etymology: decorator, whore (an obsessed person)

Very funny. Amusing reference to that 'sledding' location too... - Tigger, 2007-12-03: 21:13:00

Bauballer

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: Bah ball er

Sentence: Miss L Toe, the lady snowman loved Christmas. She had a ball (well actually, she had three very nice ones) buying lots of Christmas balls. She used them for buttons instead of lumps of coal, and even for her eyes and nose. Miss L Toe put them on the trees, hung them from the street lights, car antennas, any where to please. She pinned them on the jackets of all who came to see her, too. She was the greatest bauballer of all

Etymology: BAUBLE, BALL, ALL, ER Bauble - synonym for decoration. Ball - round Christmas ornaments, also means to have fun as in have a ball (and any sexual connotations I leave to your imaginations). All - everthing and everyone as in where she put them.
