Top verboticism of the day created by lumina

Pronunciation: mil-doopt

Sentence: The twins were thrilled to be in their first and very own apartment. No more Mom and dad breathing down their necks or peeking out windows when dates were dropping them off. Their new place looked so good when it had the last tenants belongings in it. It somehow even looked cleaner than it really was. Molly's first shower sounded to Holly like a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock's movie Psycho. When Holly ran in to see what was going on, Molly was standing in the shower screaming and pointing, "LOOK! We've been milduped! This shower does did NOT originally match the peach colored walls and decor!"

Etymology: Mildew: A superficial coating or discoloration of organic materials caused by fungi, especially under damp conditions. Duped: slang for: To deceive
