Plaidfad

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: plad fad

Sentence: After the moviE, "Braveheart" came out, Mary's Scottish boss wore only kilts and tartans and encouraged those who wished to seek his favour to do the same. This plaidfad was a problem to Mary and others, who found it hard to find enough plaid gear to wear to work. One poor soul finally flipped out and was fired for refusing to dress the part. He returned the next day in tartans, wild hair and blue paint on his face yelling "Frrrreedom!" In one of life's ironies, Mr. Burns, the manager was let go himself the next week, when one of his female staffers complained to head office that she did not like the tilt of his kilt when he came near her!

Etymology: Plaid (Tartan;crisscross design on a fabric) & Fad (craze, trend;current interest followed with exaggerated zeal)

Abcessory

moonquakes

Created by: moonquakes

Pronunciation: ab-sess-o-ree

Sentence: As Joel saw it, Karen's tie was no less offensive to his senses than the bloody pustule he once bravely bore on his 11 year-old wrist for a whole month after his 5th grade 'girlfriend' broke up with him by stabbing him with a pencil -- it was, in other words, an abscessory.

Apperil

Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: a/par'/el

Sentence: On a beautiful spring morning Jamagra could not decide what to wear to work. She always found this standing-in- front-of-the-closet part of the day disdressing and attiresome. After going through all of her apperil once again, Jamagra decided to skip the chafing and agcessorizing for one day. She phoned her excuses to the office ("illness and fatigue" because she was sick and tired of working) then went out to the garden. After donning her (non)tortureshell sunglasses, Jamagra pinched back some blooms and bound the peas to their trellis. "Much better than pinchy shoes and binding skirts," thought Jamagra.

Etymology: apparel (clothing) + peril (something that may cause injury; grave risk) "agcessorizing" - agonizing + accessorizing

Crapparel

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: krap per el

Sentence: Henry resented the dress code at his work. Mainly because he hated having to wear a tie. He called it crapparel and was always pushing for casual Fridays, without much luck. Finally one day, he snapped. He marched into the boss' office and removed his tie and that of the boss. The boss was taken aback, especially when Henry ranted that wearing a tie did not make him a better executive and not wearing one would not make him a worse one. He continued that the tie made everyman look uptight and not relaxed and was only good for catching his lunch spillings on it (or as he called it Tie Food). The boss turned red, banged his desk and smiled. He agreed and declared that the office would now be a tie-free zone everyday. After work they went out for a My-Tie.

Etymology: Crap (obscene terms for feces;obscene words for unacceptable behavior) & Apparel (clothing in general;attire)

Sadofashionistic

Created by: queenjane75

Pronunciation: say-dough-fah-shun-is-tick

Sentence: Sara prefers to wear thongs, which the men at work secretly refer to as clam hammocks, but the hammock comparison is far, far from the truth. Thongs are rather sadofashionistic, and, believe me, the un-hammock-like perma-wedgie is not worth that kind of attention from men.

Etymology: sadistic+fashion
