Mundanecook

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: mun-dane-cook

Sentence: Sally was a mundanecook, taking great pride and demanding accolades for her "gourmet" meals which often featured pigs in a blanket, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and Jello Instant Pudding. A hapless victim of the self-esteem approach to raising children, Sally believed every move she made was worthy of excessive praise, and had quit a string of jobs because her promptness was not appropriately rewarded. Bolstered by her culinary skills, Sally turned her attention to stand-up comedy, where she became the mundanecook of open mic night and was known around town for her 20-minute monologue of knock-knock jokes. (And yes, it really was a monologue...after the first one, no audience member would even say "who's there")

Etymology: Mundane combined with Dane Cook, who some people find hilarious but I think is just an average guy who has somehow propelled himself into celebrity.
