Faultypowers

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fall tee pow urs

Sentence: Basil Fawlty is a faultypowers. He faultypowers his hotel guests for expecting too much from him, like sunny weather and decent food. He faultypowers his wife Sybil, his little nest of vipers, for his cynical world view, due to his prison camp of a marriage (she being the warden, of course and he the lifer). And mainly he faultypowers Manuel, his dogsbody, on everything and anything else that clouds his day, just because Manuel is from Barcelona and can never understand enough English to know he is to blame. In his own mind, nothing is ever Basil's fault. Luckily he has Sybil to constantly remind him that he is wrong about that, too!

Etymology: faulty (describes a situation where things are wrongly done; being responsible for errors or defects;gives reason to complain) & powers (in fluential persons; ability to act or make changes; superhuman skills) & for rhyming and reference, Fawlty Towers (popular British sitcom)

Scapegoad

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: SKAIP goad

Sentence: Lam finally realized that her boyfriend basically just enjoyed picking fights for no reason. Most of them revolved around her supposed failure to care about health, the environment, or other people. He scapegoaded her for the size of his OWN butt (it was her fault because she bought snacks with trans-fats). It was because of her that his elderly mother was unhappy ("She's lonely and you don't pay enough attention to her when she talks about all her aches and digestive problems"). He scapegoaded her for using too much hot water when she took a nice long hot shower ("wasteful and bad for the environment," he said). But once, when they stayed in a hotel, he took lots of long hot showers, and it was then that she realized that he just wanted to make sure there was enough hot water for HIM! She had the last laugh, though, when she decided to break up with him. She donated his beloved car to Aid for the Ancient. When he arrived home to find it gone, she said cheerfully, "I knew you wouldn't mind because I KNOW how much you care about helping old people. And an added bonus is that it's really good for the environment AND your health if you drive less and bike more!"

Etymology: scapegoat (to single out a person for unmerited blame or negative treatment) + goad (to harass, nag, antagonize)
