Stilettosis

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: stil-let-toe-sis

Sentence: Stilettosis is a chronic condition that afflicts a vast number of women, manifesting at first as a penchant for cute shoes then metastasizing throughout the entire budget to include matching outfits, purses and, in extreme cases, jewelry. Women who show signs of this condition should immediately seek help from their banker. In advanced stages a pursectomy may be needed to remove the credit card.

Etymology: stiletto: (from the Italian word for dagger or switchblade) is an uncomfortable shoe with a high thin heel that women think look sexy but can lead to all kinds of foot and back maladies + osis: (suffix) a chronic or abnormal condition
