Didn't we all go through Bulletchewer's 'dopple anger' a few months ago? Where is that 'Chewer'? I miss his sarcastic comments. - Stevenson0, 2007-06-14: 07:53:00

Did he do a doppel word? Yep, he was quite the charhackter. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 08:05:00

I just thought of a better word - mimeostaff. It's up for grabs for anyone wants it! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 10:39:00

personally I like your xeroxymorons - that's a terrific word - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-14: 10:49:00

I liked it too, but it doesn't have any boss connotations. Perhaps it could be used for people who imitate pop culture icons. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:21:00

Another one - imbosster. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:27:00

that's very good - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-14: 11:37:00

Personally, I was going for a combination of mimicry and the lowliest worker I could think of, rather than use the boss. But a word like "employsonate" could go either way. - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 11:42:00

Good word there, also... three points! - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 11:43:00

Oooo, I like employsonate! Quite versatile. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-14: 11:57:00

Ted Doppel would be proud. - Clayton, 2007-06-14: 12:05:00

xeroxymoron can be equated to any government official that I've come across - employsonate reminds me of some of the people I've 'worked with'or should I say 'hand held' through the day doing their job - Stevenson0, 2007-06-14: 14:41:00

petaj Imbossination/imbossinator was another one I toyed with, on the impersonation idea. - petaj, 2007-06-14: 23:52:00
