Pronunciation: twin grat chee ayt

Sentence: It was subtle at first, the way George starting copying some of his manager's phrases and favourite words. Then it became more obvious to the rest of the staff that he was copying mannerisms and fashion style of his boss. He got a raise and a promotion by being able to twingratiate himself with the boss...same hair-do (now bald, like the boss);same big goggles; same polyester leisure suits and same hideous patterned shirts. Things went well for George for a time. Then his world was torn apart when the boss transferred and a new, sharp lady boss took over. How the heck was he going to twingratiate himself with her without looking like Tootsie???

Etymology: Twin (duplicate or match) & Ingratiate (gain favor with somebody by deliberate efforts)

Pronunciation: kwiz-LECT-oh-nose

Sentence: Mickey was already known to be the boss's puppy, following a step behind her, eating the same tasteless gluten-free bagels and wearing the same kevlar running shoes she had imported from Communist China, but everyone's collective jaws dropped open when she came to work with the same poorly-executed hairstyle and dollar-store sunglasses worn by our demented supervisor. Her secret nickname was forever changed from "The Wedge" to....QUISLECTONOSE ! She would rat out her comrades, applaud every hare-brained idea generated by management and now...gradually begin to resemble the wicked witch of the west. When a new director came to power after a Somali warlord-like interdepartmental coup d'etat, Mickey changed her appearance faster than an axis collaborator on the run. Now it was time to QUISLECTONOSE the new boss.....

Etymology: QUISling+refLECTion+brownNOSE=QUISLECTONOSE___quisling: traitor; particularly one who collaborates or panders to superiors_____reflection:to redirect something that strikes a surface, especially light or hairstyles, mennerisms,etc.usually back toward its cretin of origin_____(brown) nose:To curry favor with in an obsequious manner; fawn on_____thus:QUISLECTONOSE
