Decwhorator

Created by: purpleartichokes

Pronunciation: DEK-hor-ay-ter

Sentence: My friend, Wendy, is such a decwhorator that she has an entire month's worth of festive sweat shirts and sweaters. The one with Snoopy carrying the plate of cookies is cute, but the snow scene sweat shirt with a little stuffed kid tacked on to a spot where he appears to be sledding down Mt. Mammary, well, I think it's slightly obscene.

Etymology: decorator, whore (an obsessed person)

Ornamaximental

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: or - nah - max - e - men - tal

Sentence: As I drove through the snowy, picturesque streets of my home town, coming back to spend the holidays with the family, I turned the corner and could see my childhood home. My mom had gone all ornamaximental again. Our home cast a halo of light which could be seen over the top of the hill. There must have been 20,000 lights everywhere, inluding trees, bushes, lawn decorations and even figurines on the roof. It was the same way when I was a kid. Our house glowed for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, July 4th and sometimes even Valentine's Day.

Etymology: This word has several other words incorporated. Ornamental has maxi inside of it. Also, ornate and ornament are prefixes. In the middle are max, maximum. Also as a suffix, mental can be added to signify someone who is a bit "over the top". Ornate (elaborately ornamented, often to excess; flashy, flowery or showy) Ornament, Ornamental (a decoration, serving the purpose of decoration or beauty ) + Maximum (the largest possible quantity) + Mental (Mind, the collective aspects of intellect and consciousness, affected by a disorder of the mind)
