Remuddle

Created by: Mustang

Modusoperandouble

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: mo dus op er an dub ull

Sentence: Carson wanted everyone to think he took excellent care of his Lambhorgini, so he washed and waxed it every week before he took it to the custom car center for it's weekly wash and wax. Carson topped off all the fluid levels, and changed the oil, oil filter, fuel filter, and air filter just before he paid a mechanic to do them all again. He felt gratified, that it was worth the double work and double cost, when they would tell him "You take better care of your Lambhorgini than any other customer takes care of their car." His need to impress was a success. Carson's wife, however, was not impressed by this senseless double work grind involving the sweat of two's brow, because Carson's modusoperandouble, was also highway jobbery on his wallet. She wasn't impressed by Carson's high way snobbery, either!

Etymology: Modusoperandouble is a pun on modus operandi and highway jobbery is a pun on highway robbery. MODUS OPERANDI - the way and method of doing anything; in this case the way of doing it yourself then paying others to do it again. DOUBLE - twice; as in double the work and double the cost.

Wifeswabbing

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: wyfe swab bing

Sentence: Marla was racing around cleaning every nook and cranny in her large home. She had been at it for 2 days and had swept, vaccuumed, dusted, scrubbed, washed and sanitized every surface in her home, until it sparkled. Her husband Jerry came home and was bemused to find her toiling away so hard. "Isn't the new cleaner coming this afternoon?" he asked puzzedly. "Yes, and I have to rush to finish all this before she gets here". "Why is our home getting such a thorough wifeswabbing when a cleaner is on her way? Isn't that redundant?" he asked innocently. "You don't understand...she was recommended by Simone Smith from the Country Club and I cannot have her finding us the way we really live and tattling back to the ladies at the Club about what slobs we are. It is a matter of home pride! Besides, at $200 an hour it would cost us about a grand every week to have her do the real work!" Jerry thought this over and then asked, "What can I do to help before she gets here?"

Etymology: Wife (female spouse) & Swabbing (cleaning/scrubbing with a mop) & play onm Wife Swapping (what swingers do...trading spouses for a night, wink wink, nod, nod)
