I am very, very fond of Flaberet.
Unbelievable claims made by one who is considered to be an authority. “Sheila listened politely as her boss raged over Obama’s “death panels,” but deep down she knew it was a load of credibull.” See also: im-poster girl/boy (one who publicly supports a philosophy or cause he or she does not actually follow).
One who takes any slight pause in a conversation as an invitation to speak at length. “Faculty meetings were always a frustration for Nancy, whose hesitant contributions were often interrupted by Shirley, the resident yawpportunist.”
A burlesque show featuring corpulent performers. “All week Herman had looked forward to feasting his eyes on taut flesh at the visiting burlesque show, but it turned out to be a real flabaret.” See also: buff-fey (a large public gathering of gay men with chiseled physiques).
