Wearrorism

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: wer or izm

Sentence: Sally's first experience with wearrorism came when she showed up dressed as a dominatrix, complete with whip, fishnets,handcuffs, high leather boots and a tight black stain teddy over which her bosom threatened to spill out. A Playboy bunny would have found the outfit too revealing. Imagine her surpise when the masquerade party she thought she was attending, turned out to be a surprise bridal shower for her and her fiance, thrown by his religious family, whom she was to meet for the first time!

Etymology: Wear (a covering for the body)& error (a mistake made by incorrect information) & terrorism (an act instilling fear)
