Pronunciation: īkänänsens

Sentence: On the internet Thomas is a secret agent. His avatar looks a lot like James Bond. His proclivity for getting in and out of international trouble is well known.

Immortified

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: ihm-mohr-tih-feyed

Sentence: Siggie's Id had always claimed he was immortal. His Superego told him if he ate his veggies, was a good boy, watched out for fast cars and bad women he might not die too young. But, looking in the mirror that day, his deflated Ego was immortified as he realized his real identity could no longer bounce between the other two. He was becoming self-fractualized!

Etymology: Blending IMMORTAL, meaning exempt from death + MORTIFIED (from the Latin/French MORT, meaning death), meaning humiliated. References are playing with Freud's theories of personality development and Maslow's self-actualization. (What do I know???)

Pseudonymbecile

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: soo do nim bes syl

Sentence: When George, also known as Super Flyman, got up in the morning after the very long ComiCon weekend, he was surprised at what stared back at him from the mirror. This pseudonymbecile was really an out of shape middle-aged guy. Imagine his horror to realize that another Super Hero had shared his bed last night. Funny that after all those COSMO-politans last night that his bedmate was no longer Wonder Woman, but Super-Fat Granny!

Etymology: Pseudonym(a fictitious name used when the person performs a particular social role) & Imbecile (a person of subnormal intelligence)

Flubbaghast

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Flubb-err-gast

Sentence: Andrew staggered into the bathroom after thrashing that ugly Gnorm with his sixth-level paladin and was horrified to find a big bald fat man staring at him. "What the?" he gasped, his heart racing. The man gasped too and Andrew was suddenly flubbaghast to realise that man was himself. His fitted leathers and taught biceps were gone, as were his flowing mane of black hair, his majik sword and that 'strange aura of mystique' bestowed on him by the beautiful Sorceress of Tarneg. Before him stood a pasty white balding man in his thirties, obviously carrying more than twice the weight of his avatar and Andrew's wishteria simply could not reconcile the two. He gave in to his superfaction and switched the light off. Shadow-daemons beware! Andion the Brave is here and he's not happy..

Etymology: Flubber - blubbery, flubbery wobbly-ness; Also Flubber - confuse, fluster. Flub - make mistake or error; Aghast - horrified, shocked and appalled. As in being aghast on finding one's flubberiness and the flub of having missed it due to De Nial (and not de river). Also - Superfaction (Super + stupefaction) and Wishteria (Wish + hysteria)
