Normcrosbeing

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: norm croz bee ing

Sentence: Norma Crosby was the quintessential Normcrosbeing in our office. She thought by using big words (that she had seen in print, but apparently failed to check the definitions of), people would think she was far more educated than the Grade 10 level she had actually achieved, barely. When she had transferred into our HR Office, she felt it obliged her to speak far above the intellect of our internal clients, even if it meant inventing her own words. The clients were often left shaken and confused when she spoke in large words that had nothing to do with the topic at hand. As a result, people avoided her like the plague and chose not to believe any facts that she presented. Her personal crusade was that unless words were at least eight or ten letters long, why bother to use them?? It would be redumbdant and wasterly and youtilize no hexpediant deliverables.

Etymology: Norm Crosby - (Comedian, considered the Master of the Malaprop, who uses the wrong words, usually big ones to make confusing, funny comments.(i.e he speaks from his diagram and drinks decapitated coffee) & Being (a creature, a living person)

Inflatoad

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: in-FLAY-toed (inflatoading, inflatoaded, inflatoady)

Sentence: Generica became insufferable after receiving her promotion to flunky (second class)...She would INFLATOAD every sentence she uttered, making her simple thoughts swell like the bloated carcass of a dead corporate amphibian. Although her INFLATOADING endeared her to the sniveling rat-faced deviant administrators who practiced reverse sexism while touting the wonders of enlightened cultural diversity, everyone had to agree that Generica had become an INFLATOADY of the worst kind...the kind we all know.

Etymology: INFLATe+tOAD=INFLATOAD.....INFLATE:to swell or distend with air or gas, to puff up, to expand or increase abnormally or imprudently; Middle English, from Latin inflatus, past participle of inflare, from in- + flare to blow .....TOAD, TOADY: a contemptible person or thing, one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors; by shortening & alteration from toadeater- Middle English tode, from Old English tāde, tādige.
