Narcissilly

artr

Created by: artr

Sentence: The schools have gone mad. The rush to promote positive self-esteem has gone over the edge. With programs like **STUDENT OF THE WEEK**, **CITIZEN OF THE MONTH** and even **HERO OF THE WEEK**, as well as fashion shows for pre-teens, young people have no interest in anybody but themselves. Where teen years used to be a time for introspection, now it is time to be narscissilly.

Etymology: nascissism (extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one\\\'s own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type) + silly (having or showing a lack of common sense or judgment; absurd and foolish)

Mundanecook

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: mun-dane-cook

Sentence: Sally was a mundanecook, taking great pride and demanding accolades for her "gourmet" meals which often featured pigs in a blanket, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and Jello Instant Pudding. A hapless victim of the self-esteem approach to raising children, Sally believed every move she made was worthy of excessive praise, and had quit a string of jobs because her promptness was not appropriately rewarded. Bolstered by her culinary skills, Sally turned her attention to stand-up comedy, where she became the mundanecook of open mic night and was known around town for her 20-minute monologue of knock-knock jokes. (And yes, it really was a monologue...after the first one, no audience member would even say "who's there")

Etymology: Mundane combined with Dane Cook, who some people find hilarious but I think is just an average guy who has somehow propelled himself into celebrity.
