Clemenemesis

Created by: dochanne

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.

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..

Hostylist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hoss sty list

Sentence: Joy was the nicest hairstylist in town. Her clients loved her manely because she did the best coifs for miles around. Her sweet nature was an extension of the fact she loved her work. She worked with Bobbi Pin, Al Lopecia, Hairy Mullet and Dan Druff, who all loved her too. One day a new stylist joined their team. Her name was Delilah and after a short time, it became evident that she was jealous of Joy and made it her mission to be mean to her, lock, stock and barrel. The highlights of any given day were to shampoo-poo her work, upbraid her in front of clients, tease her mercilessly and cut her no slack. She combed Joy's work for flaws and ratted her out whenever she could. Poor Joy was getting s-tressed from all these brushes with Delilah. She had to find a permanent solution to her dilemma. Nothing she said or did could straighten Delilah out. On a tip from a client, Joy went to the bank and borrowed enough money to buy the salon. She renamed it The Joy of Hair. Delilah's face was colored red (actually auburn, with vermilion tints) when she found out that Joy would be her new head boss. As she streaked out of the salon to flyaway, she cursed Joy and the others(who gave her a finger wave)with that age-old hostylist's curse: "Curl up and dye!" Unfortunately for Delilah, outside, in her haste, she banged into a large mousse. The coroner later ruled her death a barbericide. The moral of this hair-raising story is that evil is at the root of all evil.

Etymology: hostile (characterized by enmity or ill will or impossible to bring into friendly accord) & sty (a place where pigs abound)& stylist (an artist who is a master of a particular style or someone who cuts or beautifies hair)
