Pronunciation: rum peld still skin
Sentence: Despite ironing her Wabassos before bed each night, Josie and her husband, Max, woke up with Rumpledstillskin each morning. Each birthday they would joke that she should iron their Birthday Suits to get out the wrinkles! She knew it was hopeless, but she pressed on. Iron-ically, her name in Swedish was Irene Ingboard!
Etymology: Rumpled (having wrinkles) & Still (despite anything to the contrary (usually following a concession)) & Skin (Epidermis, Outer layer;a natural protective covering of the body; site of the sense of touch)& Rhymes with Rumpelstiltskin (a dwarf in one of the fairy stories of the brothers Grimm; tells a woman he will not hold her to a promise if she can guess his name and when she discovers it he is so furious that he destroys himself)

Sentence: "You can't sleep at the circulation desk !" screamed EvilPat at the bored, bleary-eyed library assistant. " I WASN"T sleeping !" he replied with the standard look of indignation. "But there are PROOFONODZ all over your face !" replied EvilPat, in her best administrative patois. Faced with such irrefutable evidence, the chastised library assistant crafted an appropriate sign for the desk: "PLEASE WAKE ATTENDANT FOR SERVICE".....and drifted off to sleep with a clear conscience.
Etymology: PROOF+(of)+NOD+(catch some) Zs= PROOFONODZ.....Proof: the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact,something that induces certainty or establishes validity;Middle English prof, prove, alteration of preve, from Anglo-French preove, from Late Latin proba, from Latin probare to prove....."O": tastless substitute for the word "OF", usually seen in pretentious advertising:(cup o soup,bac o bits,etc)....NOD:To fall asleep,to make a quick downward motion of the head (as from drowsiness);Middle English nodden; perhaps akin to Old High German hnotōn to shake.....Z: suffix brashly used to imply pluralization (in a tacky way)derived from the slang expression "catch some Zs"-meaning to sleep. Pretty farfetched combination, eh?
