Counterfeit: - A mere copy of the real McCoy i.e. my daughter's knock-off designer bag which earns for her the same raves as the stars wearing thousand-dollar gowns on the red carpet.

Counterfeit: Gettin' all hissey at the check counter.

2010 update: pseudo-philosophers

Mrs said...

I disagree. The counterfeit has all the premeditation. The original is pure.

Counterfeit: A wannabe!!! My favorite bag is a wannabe...I go to classes because I wannabe...I give classes because there are other wannabes.

haha, Nessa:)

counterfeit--a forgery, like your parent's handwriting on a letter saying that you were just way too sick to come to school last Friday.

But, Terry, isn't that immoral?

TLP, that's pretty good for a pun.

I wasn't, Ariel.

That''s not a refit, Nessa?

Poor Governor.

Anonymous, it would take a pseudo scholar to identify a pseudo-philosopher, I would speculate.

Of course, Jim. Did you use your wife's computer and log-in for irony's sake?

Mo'a, a wallaby is a counterfeit kangaroo.

Gosh, Jenn. I would have thought those sites would pretty much drip with authenticity.

Actonbell, you mean the one that says "Doug will have to miss school today as his father is in a coma. Signed, Steve Pascover?"

Karen, those are all good guesses. Don't know what went wrong.
