Masquereater

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mas ker ee ter

Sentence: When Sue Doe met Shammy Davis Junior at a society cocktail party, he was sampling escargots, grenouilles and caviar with great zeal. Although she pretended to be worldly, she had never tried these delicacies either. Shammy was actually a masquereater and hated the taste of these new flavors. She commented on how savvy he was to dine on snails, frog legs and fish eggs, at which point his lack of knowledge made him pale. She asked him if was going to have some Baked Alaska for dessert. He wondered which part of Alaska they were baking and hoped it was not Deadhorse or Valdez...the former might give him nightmares and the latter might still have an oily taste to it! You can't have your Kake and eat it too. Juneau Nome what I mean?

Etymology: Masquerade (making a false outward show;pretend to be someone or something that you are not) & Eater (someone who consumes food for nourishment). Deadhorse, Valdez, Kake, Juneau and Nome are all towns/settlements in Alaska.
