Afronalysis

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: afrōnaləsis

Sentence: People could tell Latonya\'s mood by a simple process of afronalysis. If her afro is brushed and picked out she was feeling fine. If it is flat, things were not so good. If she is wearing a baseball cap everybody better stay clear. The technique fell completely apart the day she showed up with a buzz cut.

Etymology: Afro (a thick hairstyle with very tight curls that sticks out all around the head, like the natural hair of some black people) + analysis (a system of psychological theory and therapy that aims to treat mental disorders)
