Admireplicate

Created by: airlie

Pronunciation: AD-muh-rep-li-cate

Sentence: Bewildered, Adam stared at Steve, shocked at how much it felt like he was looking in a mirror. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but Steve's desire to admireplicate Adam bewildered the man. After all, he didn't think he was THAT great... Things reached a crux when Steve produced dozens more images of Adam, with his trademark horn-rimmed spectacles, Army Brat haircut and weak jawline. Clearly, Steve was obsessed... was this verging upon a creepiphany? Had Steve enschweined him? Adam decided to broach the topic... "Hey, you're copying me!" he remarked, casually. Steve replied enthusiastically. "No, I AM a copy of you! And I'm making more, just in case one breaks..." Adam swallowed nervously. So did Steve. "Being John Malkovich" suddenly made a lot more sense to Adam...

Etymology: ADMIRE: to regard with wonder, pleasure, or approval + REPLICATE: to repeat, duplicate, or reproduce Also: (n) admireplication, admireplicator, admireplicant
