Pronunciation: mutt-n-floor-nt

Sentence: Once more, Esme, an incorrigible muttonflaunt, was rummaging in the bottom of the trunk for the midriff top and hotpants from her youth. When Ken walked in all he could see was her saggy derriere clad in a g-string wobbling about on top of her thigh-high-booted legs, with clothing being tossed in the air.

Etymology: mutton dressed as lamb (an older person wearing youthful clothes) + flaunt (to show off)

Pronunciation: boom-shack-a-crack-a

Sentence: In her heyday, the beach bunny once made the boys cry "boomshackalacka" when she sashayed by in her thong bikini. Now the saggy, baggy, aging boomer draws hoots, giggles and cries of "boomshackacracka" from the beach crowd as she shuffles by in her orthopedic thong.

Etymology: boomshackalacka -- from the bridge of Tina Turner's hit "I Want to Take You Higher," it has become an urban expression in reference to the jiggling of a woman's derriere. Tina Turner is undoubtedly one of the greatest rock divas of all time whose career soared in the 1960s and 70s with her husband Ike Turner. Born in 1939, she still records and her concerts continue to electrify people as she tears up the stage with her music, still looking amazing in short skirts and heels. + cracka -- you figure it out

Pronunciation: rip van rin kel

Etymology: Rip Van Winkle (fairy tale character who slept through his life;person who is oblivious to social changes) & Wrinkle (creases and folds in the skin due to aging and loss of elasticity)
