Transforminator

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: transfôrmənātər

Sentence: Billy has no personality of his own. He is a transforminator. Whatever "super" character is presented in a movie, TV show or video game he becomes. When he saw Star Wars he was convinced that the force was with him. He re-named the family sheepdog Chewie. When the Matrix was released it was a long trench coat and shades. There was a lot of snarling and grunting emanating from Billy's room when the Hulk was in the theater. His mother doesn't know what to expect if they make a live-action version of Wonder Woman as rumored.

Etymology: Transformer (Transformers is a 2007 live-action film adaptation of the Transformers toy franchise) + Terminator (The Terminator is a 1984 science fiction/action film directed and co-written by James Cameron. It features Arnold Schwarzenegger
