thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

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. "Oh, it's so important to write your social security number on the seeds of your organic produce, otherwise Monsanto will sue you for copyright infringement" she told a few new friends. 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)

Metoometoo

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: mētoōmētoō

Sentence: Sheldon is a confirmed metoometoo. He has no opinions to call his own. Maybe it is his Swiss upbringing but he steadfastly remains neutral on every topic you could mention. He is great at collecting facts but somehow never gets to the point of deciding what he thinks. In a clear case of "whichever way the wind blows" any opinion expressed gets an immediate concurrence and cascade of supporting facts.

Etymology: me (used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself as the object of a verb or preposition) + too (in addition; also) slightly derived from Star Wars droid R2D2.
