Cliphibitionist

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Clip + hibi + shun + ist

Sentence: Stan was a busy man indeed. He was a splendid public speaker who liked to share his inspirational insights and stories with others. What with his book tours and public speaking schedules, he barely had time to brush his teeth, eat or dress some days. Trouble was, he seemed oblivous to other's disgusted reactions as he openly groomed himself; snipping, clipping, plucking and brushing any part of himself that needed upkeep. What a time-saver, he thought. Stan never concerned himself with the fact that he had turned into a notorious cliphibitionist.

Etymology: "Clip" as to clip a toenail, hair or moustache + "exhibitionist" - a flaunter, flasher or pervert
