Gafforgaffer

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: gaff for gaf fer

Sentence: If they needed a lucid answer or wanted to make a request that would be remembered, it was wise to ask the boss in the mornings. That was because the boss,Sheldon Sober, had a liquid lunch every day. His lunches also ran overtime, so while this cat was away,the mice would play. Mimi the Mimic could do a hilarious impersonation of inebriated Sheldon, which would endear her to and entertain her co-workers. One day, the pub Sheldon normally frequented ran out of beer several hours after he got there, so he headed back to his office to get a "stiffener" from the "First Aid Kit" in his desk. He arrived in time to find Mimi taking the mick out of him and the staff roaring with laughter. They meekly slunk back to their desks and nothing was said for the rest of the day. In the morning Mimi timidly reported into work, wondering if she still had a job. Sheldon apparently had forgotten her gafforgaffer and commented to her that she did a great Dean Martin impression!

Etymology: Gaffe (a socially awkward or tactless act) & For(Because; by reason that) & Gaffer(a person who exercises control over workers)

Paronody

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: per o no dee

Sentence: Shelley was always the life of the party, even at work. She could imitate anybody, but especially her boss, Fred. Unfortunately, Fred gave her lots of material to work with. Like many bosses, Fred was always too busy to answer his staff's concerns. If you wanted to get his attention, it was usually a challenge. Unfortunately for Shelley, Fred also had a knack for showing up when she least expected him. If you talked to him, he would not hear, but if you talked about him, he had omnipresent hearing. Fred could managerialize out of thin air. This happened on Shelley's last day of work, when she was doing her paronody of Fred dancing at the Christmas party. "Out, Shelley", he yelled..."you will be a slambossador no more"!

Etymology: Parody (humorous or satirical mimicry; a composition that imitates somebody's style in a humorous way) & Oh No! (Exclamation of regret, remorse, unpleassant surprise...like SNL's Mr.Bill who always said "OHHH NOOOOO!)
