COMMENTS:

I like your word! The onomatopoeia of the 'cisscisssorise' of it is awesome! The play on those two words is very clever. I think you could give this word a few more daffynitions ... than the one it was made up for ... or the one you gave ... like: cutting off the narcissist before he made you gag on his ego! - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 15:10:00

Ablewtions

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ah bleuw shuns

"How can you perform these ablewtions here everyday...have you no sense of pride?", said his co-worker, Felix. "And I hope you have not put your clippings in your coffee mug again!" said his other co-worker, Faith. "Don't worry", said Oscar, "I put them in your mug instead!" Ewwwwww!

Etymology: Ablutions (washing, cleansing, bathing, scrubbing one's self as a daily ritual) & Eww ( Slang expression of disgust or nausea...like yuck or ugh!)

Cliphibitionist

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Clip + hibi + shun + ist

Sentence: Stan was a busy man indeed. He was a splendid public speaker who liked to share his inspirational insights and stories with others. What with his book tours and public speaking schedules, he barely had time to brush his teeth, eat or dress some days. Trouble was, he seemed oblivous to other's disgusted reactions as he openly groomed himself; snipping, clipping, plucking and brushing any part of himself that needed upkeep. What a time-saver, he thought. Stan never concerned himself with the fact that he had turned into a notorious cliphibitionist.

Etymology: "Clip" as to clip a toenail, hair or moustache + "exhibitionist" - a flaunter, flasher or pervert
