Designerlibel

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /di-ZAI-ner-lai-bul/

Sentence: It all started when Jack was a teenager, and he tried painting a Reebok logo on the department store, no-name-brand sneakers that was all his family could afford, and now he would make regular forays into the men's fashion stores where they sold Armani, D&G and Hugo Boss, to look for loose brand labels that he could affix to his own bargain clothing. Jack had been commiting designerlibel for years, even though he now owned his own successful department store chain.

Etymology: Blended malapropism of "Designer Label": Designer - bearing the name or logo of a specific designer (from Latin, dēsignāre "to designate") + Libel - to misrepresent damagingly (from Latin, libellus "little book, pamphlet")

For those not old enough to have heard the song, or are not familiar with the song, the Great Pretender, the actual lyrics to the chorus are: Oh yes I'm the Great Pretender! Just laughing and gay like a clown! I seem to be what I'm not; you see ... I'm wearing my heart like a crown, Pretending that you're still around. - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 01:00:00

Thanks, silveryaspen...guess which song is replaying over and over in my head??? Neat approach anyway! - Nosila, 2008-03-03: 01:14:00

Me too, Nosalia. I'm a newbie: is there a verbotomy for this? "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." - stache, 2008-03-03: 10:27:00

Sure, stache! Go ahead and submit it! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 22:30:00

Shoot! I posted the above before I read under comments on your verbot, stache, that it has been done before! Today I'm a day late, a dollar short, a fingerslipping, and in a mindripping muddle! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 23:02:00
