Dresstapo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dress sta po

Sentence: Muffy and Bitsy were snobs and considered themselves the Dresstapo in their workplace. The two of them shared a brain (which usually one of them would forget at home)and felt it their duty to inform other people in the office of the fashion faux pas which were committed everyday. Fashion magazines were the required reading for these Faux-Pair Girls and they patrolled the office religiously to seek out and humiliate the offenders. Then they would feel self righteous about the fact that they were crusaders for a higher purpose, the fashion industry. One day as they rode up in the elevator, a new girl shared their ride. The Decorative Duo sensed fresh meat and lost no time in criticizing the hapless female about her lack of flair. They derided her for her lack of class and elan, about how plain and untrendy her garments were and the fact that she wore no accessories. The girl just smiled smugly and got off on the next floor. When they got to their desks, the Primpcesses were called to the boss' office, where he introduced them to the same fashion victim. Too late they discovered that she was his daughter and their new CEO! They would, however, be the best dressed people at the unemployment office.

Etymology: dress (clothing of a distinctive style or for a particular occasion) & Gestapo (secret police, known for its terrorist methods)
