Imparisonator

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: imparisənātər

Her friends are concerned for the safety of pet Labrador when she dresses it up and tries to carry it around in her purse.

Etymology: impersonator (pretend to be (another person) as entertainment or in order to deceive someone) + Paris (Paris Whitney Hilton is an American socialite, celebutante, heiress, model, media personality, singer and actress.)
