artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: stoōpərvizhən

Sentence: Denise*s supervisor is a super hero. He has powers far beyond those of mortals. The sound of his voice can crack glass.

When the **Big Boss** is on the prowl with productivity questions he employs his greatest power of all. He uses his stuporvision to look like he is deep, deep in thought. He is so good at it that **Mr. Bigpants** might even apologize for interrupting and return to the ivory tower.

Etymology: stupor (a state of near-unconsciousness or insensibility) + supervision (to observe and direct the work of others)
