They had such wonderful, easy lives and really nice hair. These beautiful women never had to deal with real horrible beasts like Larry, the guy in marketing and her sister who always complained about her boyfriend. She just knew that if she waited long enough some handsome son of a god would come and take her off to a far away land where food was prepared by the chef gods and you didn't ever have to wash the dishes.

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
