Zombitogs

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: ZZZOM-bee-tawgz (pronounced slowly, with an spooky inflection)

Sentence: Jean-Luc was reluctant to discard his old cabana wear, elephant bells, Lazarus jeans or Nehru jacket because he was SURE they would complete the great "Circle of Life" and be trendy once again. His daughter considered them ZOMBITOGS and looked askance when he asked her if she'd seen his dickie. Undaunted, Jean-Luc donned his tie-dyed t-shirt, slipped on his Earth shoes and denim jacket, then stumbled down to the wharfside beer garden where he pounded down a few bottles of fine Dominican rum and lamented the sartorial treasures which lay unappreciated in his fungi-filled basement. ZOMBITOGS INDEED !

Etymology: ZOMBIE+TOGS=ZOMBITOGS.....Zombie: Haitian Creole term meaning a supernatural power or ectoplasm able to enter and re-animate a dead person or fashion accessory.....Togs: colloquial term meaning "clothing"

Ha! "Dickie!" My dad had a few AND a couple times in the winter my mom would shove one of them in my white uniform school blouse...you know when I seemed to be coming down with a cold? Wow...talk about flashback...ha - lumina, 2008-09-15: 05:45:00

metrohumanx I presume you survived Catholic school? - metrohumanx, 2008-09-15: 15:25:00

metrohumanx PS- I never wore a "dickie"....I preferred the cold war look- white turtleneck and sports jacket. - metrohumanx, 2008-09-15: 15:27:00

Zombitogs...need zombitogs, must have zombitogs...I am getting sleepy. Just kidding and I too love the word dickie...who the heck thought of that idea? I mean it's not as if a full turtleneck is called a Richard, is it? - Nosila, 2008-09-15: 21:41:00

metrohumanx I know...it's embarrassing to even say "dickie"....My misguided friend once bought a pair of BAN-LON socks whick were kinda filmy and had florescent green pinstripes, too...they actually BURNED away from his foot when he tried to stomp out flaming newspaper. His name was Fast Eddie. - metrohumanx, 2008-09-16: 03:44:00

Yes, I survived eight years of Catholic school AND?????????? Your "cold war" style was my brother's Confirmation "get up." ha - lumina, 2008-09-16: 10:48:00
