Muttonflaunt: /mutt-n-floor-nt/ Once more, Esme, an incorrigible muttonflaunt, was rummaging in the bottom of the trunk for the midriff top and hotpants from her youth.

Indistreet: /indistrēt/ The workers in the assisted-living facility were stunned at how indistreet their charges could be. Someone had apparently left a catalog of streetwear where the elders could get hold of it. Suddenly the community was flooded with grannies in spandex and chucks, grandpas with boxers hiked up to their armpits and shorts well below their hips. Before long things returned to normal when the seniors discovered that thongs are not comfortable for anybody and that it is hard to do business with local merchants while they are laughing uncontrollably. Etymology: indiscreet (having, showing, or proceeding from too great a readiness to reveal things that should remain secret or private) + street (Street wear is a distinctive style of fashion not to be confused with hip hop fashion. Its roots are in skateboarding and the "skatewear" of the 1980s) Created by: artr.

Ripvanwrinkle: /rip van rin kel/ When Maisie showed up in the bikini she had worn more successfully forty years ago, she looked like a real ripvanwrinkle. Her skin looked like the surface of the moon and it was painfully obvious she had lost the fight against gravity here on earth. The poor bikini fought to enclose her Dead Sea rolls. 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) Created by: Nosila.
