Transmogulfry

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: tranz-MOE-gull-fry (transmogulfried;transmogulfriar)

Sentence: Cosmo was a very likeable chap-superintelligent and kind to small furry things. I knew him briefly in junior high school, before he disappeared into the sordid subculture of the sixties. No more was heard from him until surfaced one day at Eva's Soup Kitchen. In the intervening decades, Cosmo had TRANSMOGULFRIED to a significant degree. He regaled everyone with his stories about his fortune, made and lost, as a Sheep Wrangler in New Zealand. A few minutes later, he explained his life with the Cargo Cults of the South Pacific. He had been a rocket sled test pilot, a dental floss tycoon, and he could reel off a list of movies he had starred in under various names. Cosmo had TRANSMOGULFRIED his brain, but he was sure to inherit Ted Turner's vast fortune after he liberated Inner Mongolia and become an Ascended Master. Cosmo was a close personal friend of Doctor Terwilliger, whose thousand piano students would one day perform the ultimate piano recital. Cosmo perfected perpetual motion and the motor-operated pushover, but was cheated out of the royalties. He refused to accept money or tobacco, even if it wasn't damp. However, there was ONE favor he asked...please refer to him by his rightful name: Alexander Vasilievich Ungern Von Sternberg.

Etymology: TRANSmogrify+MOGUL+FRY=TRANSMOGULFRY...TRANSMOGRIFY:to change or alter one's perceptions or lifestyle,greatly and often with grotesque or humorous effect, often to the detriment of one's sanity;origin unknown.....MOGUL: A person wielding great power, however imaginary- a tycoon or magnate;Persian Mughul, from Mongolian mongγol Mongol.....FRY: To abuse one's brain to the point of delusion through accidental or intentional ingestion of psychotropic substances, particularly SOMA-the divine mushroom of immortality.... Or an industrial accident or other traumatic event.
