Pronunciation: Clem-en-em-eh-sis

Sentence: Richard Snodgrass was a passive man. He was bland and meek and wore lots of beige. His clemenemesis was Judy, his secretary, who ran the office with an iron fist and steel capped stilettos. He was ok with that, even though it made him feel weak. It meant people hated her instead of him, and his little rebellions consisted of meekly implying a decision was in fact hers and there was little he could do. Often that was right. He practiced sharp shooting on the weekends and dreamt about being a Pythonesque ferocious killer bunny.

Etymology: Clement - gentle, forgiving, pleasant; Nemesis - one's most villainous enemy. Eminem - popular and has no doubt stepped on some toes to get there; Mennuhmennuh - part of the chorus of the Muppet song, sung best by Animal, who is both an animal and fluffy..
