Skitsophrenic

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /skit-suh-fren-ik/

Sentence: Every time Julian watches the movie Star Wars, especially the jedi fight scenes, he becomes a total skitsophrenic — he thinks he's Luke Skywalker, and he jumps up and starts fighting off illusionary enemies with his imaginary lightsaber. He's such an autobiografool!

Etymology: skit - a short literary or theatrical piece, or sketch (from Old Norse, skjuta "to shoot") + schizophrenic - term used to describe a person with multiple personality disorder (from Greek, skhizein "to split" & phrenic "of the mind")
