Pronunciation: koz-moh-nip-yuh-ley-shuhn

Sentence: "What women really want", "How to tell he cares just for you"... The articles in women's magazines read like an instruction manual for men with one thought in mind. Jimmy's Cosmonipulation involves reading through these magazines to glean the best techniques to put that one thought into action.

Etymology: Cosmo (shortened name of a popular women's magazine) manipulation (to negotiate, control, or influence (something or someone) cleverly, skilfully, or deviously)
