Fun with words

We say of lawyers who lose their official standing before the bar through some misdemeanor that they are “disbarred”. Similarly, priests are subject to the penalty of being “unfrocked”, the frock being their clerical dress.

For the sake of consistency, perhaps this theme should be carried out for other professions as well. Electricians could be: delighted; musicians: denoted; cowboys: deranged; models: deposed; judges: distorted; dressmakers: unbiased. As for office workers, if they misbehaved, they could be defiled. – from Liguorian Magazine, “Lucid Intervals”
