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.

Funny that after all those COSMO-politans last night that his bedmate was no longer Wonder Woman, but Super-Fat Granny!
