Pronunciation: ōpənôfiswərkər

Sentence: With the release of OpenOfficeWorker version 2.3 MozillaCorp was finally able to create a truly happy workforce. No more concerns about individuality. No treating workers differently because they brought different talents and experiences to the job. No more concerns about workers trying to personalize their cubicles. They*re all the same and they seem to prefer it that way. The company did have to consider how to house the workers. Too many together and they would flashmob the local grocery or bottleneck arrival at work. They found they could sell off most of their parking lot property by opting for the eco-mod and allowing the workers to ride to work on their Unixcycles.

Etymology: Open office (open-source software that mimics MS Office) + office worker (person who*s employment primarily involves working within the confines of an office)

Supersimulate

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Soo-per-sim-yu-layt

Sentence: Mary was so annoying, she would supersimulate everything that Jean did. If Jean bought some new shoes, then Mary would go and buy an identical pair for herself a few days later. Her husband told her she should be pleased as Mary obviously held her in great esteem, but the last straw came when she told Mary she was pregnant and guess what, a few months later Mary was pregnant too. I suppose Jean should have been grateful that she had a husband of her own and didnt need to borrow hers!

Etymology: Super (excellent) + Simulate (Imitate or reproduce the appearance, character, or conditions of) ORIIN Latin simulare 'copy represent' = Supersimulate
