Sentence: Irma had survived many bosses in her long career. She developed many survival skills to weather the changes brought on by the next best manager she'd get stuck training. One secret to her success was to bosstitute herself. She figured out early that these guys had such egos, they loved nothing better than gazing in a mirror. So she reinvented herself to copy traits or physical qualities of each boss. There was Rex the cowboy boss, whose inspired her chaps and stetson. There was Richard the Ivy League yuppie who inspired her 3 piece pin-striped suits and designer briefcase. There was Howie, the used car salesman, who inspired her polyester suit and open neck Aloha shirts. There was Hubert the nerd, who inspired her mismatched clothing and pocket protector and glasses with white tape on the frames. And there was the womanizer, Jake, after whom she dressed like a rake. She couldn't wait to greet her new boss, Davinder Ravinder Pinderjit, in her new Nehru jacket with a marigold lei. Yes, Irma was definitely a bosstitute, a working girl and a hustler!

Etymology: boss (chief, leader, person in control) & substitute (copy; a person or thing that takes or can take the place of another;act as a replacement) & prostitute (to sell ones self for money or favors)

I love it. It rolls right off the tongue and into the ears of gossiping co-workers.
