Shameleon

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: shamēlyən

Sentence: Joey is a shameleon. When he goes to a movie or play, he often leaves with the feeling that he is somehow connected to the hero and can do much of what was depicted. He has to be very careful choosing what he goes to see. Bond movies? Trouble! Dukes of Hazard? Wrecked his car! His pet gecko may be in trouble if he goes to see **How to train your dragon**.

Etymology: sham (a thing that is not what it is purported to be) + chameleon (a small slow-moving Old World lizard with a prehensile tail, long extensible tongue, protruding eyes that rotate independently, and a highly developed ability to change color)

Transforminator

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: transfôrmənātər

Sentence: Billy has no personality of his own. He is a transforminator. Whatever "super" character is presented in a movie, TV show or video game he becomes. When he saw Star Wars he was convinced that the force was with him. He re-named the family sheepdog Chewie. When the Matrix was released it was a long trench coat and shades. There was a lot of snarling and grunting emanating from Billy's room when the Hulk was in the theater. His mother doesn't know what to expect if they make a live-action version of Wonder Woman as rumored.

Etymology: Transformer (Transformers is a 2007 live-action film adaptation of the Transformers toy franchise) + Terminator (The Terminator is a 1984 science fiction/action film directed and co-written by James Cameron. It features Arnold Schwarzenegger

Transmogulfry

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: tranz-MOE-gull-fry (transmogulfried;transmogulfriar)

Sentence: Cosmo was a very likeable chap-superintelligent and kind to small furry things. I knew him briefly in junior high school, before he disappeared into the sordid subculture of the sixties. No more was heard from him until surfaced one day at Eva's Soup Kitchen. In the intervening decades, Cosmo had TRANSMOGULFRIED to a significant degree. He regaled everyone with his stories about his fortune, made and lost, as a Sheep Wrangler in New Zealand. A few minutes later, he explained his life with the Cargo Cults of the South Pacific. He had been a rocket sled test pilot, a dental floss tycoon, and he could reel off a list of movies he had starred in under various names. Cosmo had TRANSMOGULFRIED his brain, but he was sure to inherit Ted Turner's vast fortune after he liberated Inner Mongolia and become an Ascended Master. Cosmo was a close personal friend of Doctor Terwilliger, whose thousand piano students would one day perform the ultimate piano recital. Cosmo perfected perpetual motion and the motor-operated pushover, but was cheated out of the royalties. He refused to accept money or tobacco, even if it wasn't damp. However, there was ONE favor he asked...please refer to him by his rightful name: Alexander Vasilievich Ungern Von Sternberg.

Etymology: TRANSmogrify+MOGUL+FRY=TRANSMOGULFRY...TRANSMOGRIFY:to change or alter one's perceptions or lifestyle,greatly and often with grotesque or humorous effect, often to the detriment of one's sanity;origin unknown.....MOGUL: A person wielding great power, however imaginary- a tycoon or magnate;Persian Mughul, from Mongolian mongγol Mongol.....FRY: To abuse one's brain to the point of delusion through accidental or intentional ingestion of psychotropic substances, particularly SOMA-the divine mushroom of immortality.... Or an industrial accident or other traumatic event.

Oughttobiography

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ott to by og rafee

Sentence: Jimmy could identify with James Bond in all the books and movies. With his dashing good looks and suave,debonair comportment and je ne sais quoi, he could relate to James Bond, Agent 007, "License to Kill". He thought Ian Fleming had written an Oughttobiography for Jimmy when he wrote his books, as the similarities were very evident, if one had a "GoldenEye" for details. When he went for his annual physical, it was "Dr.No"; When he bought vodka (for his martinis, shaken, not stirred) it was "From Russia With Love"; when he got engaged it was "Diamonds are Forever"; when he got married, it was "Goldfinger"; when he got his hair done, it was "Live and Let Dye"; If he couldn't get an appointment, he could "Dye Another Day", because "Tomorrow Never Dyes"; when he bowled, it was "ThunderBall"; when he went hunting, it was "A View to a Kill"; when he played tennis with the Queen, it was "On Her Majesty's Secret Service"; when he went to the optometrist, it was "For Your Eyes Only"; when he enlisted in NASA's space gardening program, he became "Moonraker" and when he ate seafood, instead of kalamari, he ordered "Octopussy". Yes, Jimmy shared a bond with James Bond, he could scare "The Living Daylights" out of anyone who tried to steal his Aston Martin. When he got bored, he would head to "Casino Royale." He enjoyed a"Quantum of Solace" when he was caught speeding chasing "The Spy Who Loved Me" and after Blofeld's men, he was clocked at 95 mph by the "Man With The Golden Gun". There was some "Quantum of Solace" in the fact, he had to find a new pad,with all the best of Q's gadgetry. Although Jimmy was a citizen of this world,he thought "The World Is Not Enough"!

Etymology: Ought to (should, had better, need to) & Autobiography (a biography (life story) of yourself)

There's a lot of Bonding going on here, Walther PPK! One of the best lines from the movies was in Moonraker, when James (Roger Moore)and Lois Chiles are making love in zero gravity on a shuttle on their way back to Earth. M asks what is he doing?(because he can see them on the monitor) and Q answers, "I think he's attempting re-entry!" - Nosila, 2008-11-17: 20:36:00
