Funny that after all those COSMO-politans last night that his bedmate was no longer Wonder Woman, but Super-Fat Granny!

Immortified

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: ihm-mohr-tih-feyed

Sentence: Siggie's Id had always claimed he was immortal. His Superego told him if he ate his veggies, was a good boy, watched out for fast cars and bad women he might not die too young. But, looking in the mirror that day, his deflated Ego was immortified as he realized his real identity could no longer bounce between the other two. He was becoming self-fractualized!

Etymology: Blending IMMORTAL, meaning exempt from death + MORTIFIED (from the Latin/French MORT, meaning death), meaning humiliated. References are playing with Freud's theories of personality development and Maslow's self-actualization. (What do I know???)
