Hostylist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hoss sty list

Sentence: Joy was the nicest hairstylist in town. Her clients loved her manely because she did the best coifs for miles around. Her sweet nature was an extension of the fact she loved her work. She worked with Bobbi Pin, Al Lopecia, Hairy Mullet and Dan Druff, who all loved her too. One day a new stylist joined their team. Her name was Delilah and after a short time, it became evident that she was jealous of Joy and made it her mission to be mean to her, lock, stock and barrel. The highlights of any given day were to shampoo-poo her work, upbraid her in front of clients, tease her mercilessly and cut her no slack. She combed Joy's work for flaws and ratted her out whenever she could. Poor Joy was getting s-tressed from all these brushes with Delilah. She had to find a permanent solution to her dilemma. Nothing she said or did could straighten Delilah out. On a tip from a client, Joy went to the bank and borrowed enough money to buy the salon. She renamed it The Joy of Hair. Delilah's face was colored red (actually auburn, with vermilion tints) when she found out that Joy would be her new head boss. As she streaked out of the salon to flyaway, she cursed Joy and the others(who gave her a finger wave)with that age-old hostylist's curse: "Curl up and dye!" Unfortunately for Delilah, outside, in her haste, she banged into a large mousse. The coroner later ruled her death a barbericide. The moral of this hair-raising story is that evil is at the root of all evil.

Etymology: hostile (characterized by enmity or ill will or impossible to bring into friendly accord) & sty (a place where pigs abound)& stylist (an artist who is a master of a particular style or someone who cuts or beautifies hair)

Fauxpaw

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: fōpô

Sentence: Buffy just can't seem to get things right. She doesn't quite understand the etiquette of the local dog park. She is always the one who creates the fauxpaw.

Besiegious

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: beh seej ee us

Sentence: Gretta suffered from an ingrown sense of entitlement and superiority. Often she would join a group and try to quickly assess how to rise up in the ranks of coolness by selecting the weakest link. Her years in middle and high school prepared her with many opportunities to crush anyone who were not worthy of her attention and who would not be spineless followers of her entourage of cliquiness. However, this all came to a screeching halt when she decided to enter the workforce and had to make nice with all of the other employees. Her besiegious behavior was not tolerated and when she attacked the nicest person within the established office culture, she was immediately shown a different pecking order.

Etymology: besiege + egregious

Steporidae

Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: step/or'/i/dee

Sentence: Warren loved to surf to leporidae.com where he could chat about all 54 species of rabbits with other rabid fans. He didn't like to log on, however, if "Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog" was already online. Caerbannog was the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered creature ever to visit a website, and Warren could just imagine Caerbannog's big, pointy teeth! Warren had plans to attend night school and become a veterinarian. After getting his degree, he would finally be able to leave his current job at "Hoppers", the pet store specializing in rabbits and hares. Caerbannog, on more than one occasion, had steporidaed all over Warren's idaes about self-betterment which made Warren furryous. "Some people just don't carrot all," sniffed Warren as he surfed to a different site.

Etymology: step + leporidae (the rabbit "family" in scientific classification)
