Pronunciation: kon-rad

Sentence: Kimberly hated her twin sister, Loretta. Loretta was an excellent conrade, quickly befriending strangers and extracting just enough information to steal their identities.

And just as soon as she finished her day of work at MegaPharm, Inc. she was behind her chum's houses with a shovel and magnifying glass. "She thinks everyone's a chump" Kimberly complained, "I haven't talked to her since my application for a gapcard was denied."

Etymology: con (to betray confidence) + comrade (close friend)
