Great sentence. - ErWenn, 2007-06-05: 02:56:00

could you imagine being held outside the country for not enough sexiness? that's why i always travel extra sexy. seriously, have you ever seen somebody extra sexy get stuck in a line anywhere? except the dmv, because no matter how many people there are waiting in line at the dmv, nobody can look sexy after 5 hours of hot breath and regrets. also, i like to imagine that there is a super sexy dmv where super sexy get their pictures taken and the pictures look good. also the workers are sexy. and the lines are shorter. - jadenguy, 2007-06-05: 10:08:00

Doppeldigitize

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dop pel dij it eyze

Sentence: Dorothy liked to communicate with many on-line friends. She felt much safer and sexier by having her real photo go through a doppeldigitze process, so that she looked younger, fairer, thinner and more attractive and possibly even a richer persona. Of course, at this rate, she could never risk meeting these friends in person, lest they see they had been fooled. What she failed to understand was that they also doppeldigitized themselves, so that she could never recognize them from their photo-shopped images. Sadly, these were the most honest and real friends she had ever cultivated.

Etymology: Doppel (German for Double; a Doppelganger is someone's exact double, thought by many to be seen on a different parallel as an exact double or even an evil twin) & Digitize (put into digital form, as for use in a computer;to change into computer format)
