Mannequinate

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: man-ee-kin-ate

Sentence: Not all humans are born equal, but when it came to Bob, some thought born was a misnomer. And despite being garbed always in latest fashion and accessories, his gaucherie suggested that a more suitable word was needed to describe his strange and anti-social behaviour. Someone suggested "mannequinate"; others wanted more time to think. However friends were encouraged that an inner change was about to take place when they saw Bob reading the book, "Personality for Dummies."

Etymology: MANNEQUINATE: blend of mannequin - model of a person, used to display clothes; a dummy (lit & fig). & -ATE: as an ending of a verb, to cause, to become.
