Erroraparent: /er or ap per rant/ Trust Richard Dufus to say to the boss' wife at a party that she looked pregnant, when she wasn't. You could always count on him to make an erroraparent comment. He only ever opened his mouth to change feet. As if that remark did not endear him enough, he spied a person with lots of make-up, jewellery, a fancy wig and gaudy outfit on his way to the bar. When he asked the boss' mother what her Drag Queen name was and which drag bar she worked in, he found himself looking for another line of work... Etymology: Error (mistake) & A Parent (someone who has offspring)/ Apparent (clearly apparent or obvious to the mind or senses) & WordPlay on Heir Apparent (an heir whose right to an inheritance cannot be defeated if that person outlives the ancestor) Created by: Nosila.

very nice play on words ... but the meaning could be mistaken for a man's padded belly while playing Santa.
