Didn't we all go through Bulletchewer's 'dopple anger' a few months ago? Where is that 'Chewer'? I miss his sarcastic comments. - Stevenson0, 2007-06-14: 07:53:00

Did he do a doppel word? Yep, he was quite the charhackter. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 08:05:00

I just thought of a better word - mimeostaff. It's up for grabs for anyone wants it! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 10:39:00

personally I like your xeroxymorons - that's a terrific word - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-14: 10:49:00

I liked it too, but it doesn't have any boss connotations. Perhaps it could be used for people who imitate pop culture icons. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:21:00

Another one - imbosster. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:27:00

that's very good - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-14: 11:37:00

Personally, I was going for a combination of mimicry and the lowliest worker I could think of, rather than use the boss. But a word like "employsonate" could go either way. - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 11:42:00

Good word there, also... three points! - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 11:43:00

Oooo, I like employsonate! Quite versatile. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:57:00

Ted Doppel would be proud. - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 12:05:00

xeroxymoron can be equated to any government official that I've come across - employsonate reminds me of some of the people I've 'worked with'or should I say 'hand held' through the day doing their job - Stevenson0, 2007-06-14: 14:41:00

petaj Imbossination/imbossinator was another one I toyed with, on the impersonation idea. - petaj, 2007-06-14: 23:52:00

Bosstitute

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bos stit toot

Sentence: Irma had survived many bosses in her long career. She developed many survival skills to weather the changes brought on by the next best manager she'd get stuck training. One secret to her success was to bosstitute herself. She figured out early that these guys had such egos, they loved nothing better than gazing in a mirror. So she reinvented herself to copy traits or physical qualities of each boss. There was Rex the cowboy boss, whose inspired her chaps and stetson. There was Richard the Ivy League yuppie who inspired her 3 piece pin-striped suits and designer briefcase. There was Howie, the used car salesman, who inspired her polyester suit and open neck Aloha shirts. There was Hubert the nerd, who inspired her mismatched clothing and pocket protector and glasses with white tape on the frames. And there was the womanizer, Jake, after whom she dressed like a rake. She couldn't wait to greet her new boss, Davinder Ravinder Pinderjit, in her new Nehru jacket with a marigold lei. Yes, Irma was definitely a bosstitute, a working girl and a hustler!

Etymology: boss (chief, leader, person in control) & substitute (copy; a person or thing that takes or can take the place of another;act as a replacement) & prostitute (to sell ones self for money or favors)

Copykate

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: käpēkāt

Sentence: CopyKate wants so much to be like her boss that it hurts. The trouble is that her budget for the extravagant is nowhere near his. He wears European designer suits and drives a top-of-the-line Fiat. She wears knockoffs and drives a counterfiat, a Ford Fiesta with an after-market simulant grill. The shaved head wasn’t difficult to pull off. The chest hair may take some doing.
