Tizzleaboutomy

Created by: emdeejay

Pronunciation: tizzle about a me

Sentence: Despite being a rather fetching looking girl, Jemima's self esteem was always a little on the low side. When a conversation turned to negative things, she always found a way to make a self deprecating remark. In the presence of opportunistic young lads she usually got what she wanted, and offers of more to boot! Unfortunately though Jemima's friends were flattered out sick of it; they wanted to give her a Tizzleaboutomy.

Etymology: Tizzle: silly lie or other hogwash. Aboutomy: as in 'abouta me' - tis all abouta me!

Shuckster

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: shuk ster

Sentence: Melanie was a shuckster. Everytime she was given a compliment, she'd turn it into a negative, so that people would have to compliment her more to convince her it was sincere. When Georgia complimented her on her new purple dress, Melanie said she thought it made her look fat. Then Georgia would insist that the colour suited Melanie so well. Finally Georgia, who had not had any compliments in a long time, got fed up with Melanie's act in demureness. Georgia told her flatly to enjoy any compliments she got now, because in 25 years, 2 kids and a divorce later, she probably wouldn't be able to fit that little purple dress anymore. Georgia knew from whence she spoke.

Etymology: Shucks (an expression of disappointment or irritation;something of little value...phrase Aw Shucks, is Characterized by a shy, self-effacing, often unsophisticated manner, intended to show humble reaction to compliments) & suffix "-ster" (Someone who is, or who is associated with, or who does something specified.) Rhymes wkith Huckster (a seller of shoddy goods)
