Paragoge (par-a-go’-ge): The addition of a letter or syllable to the end of a word. A kind of metaplasm.
Pundits are predicting that Pontius ‘The Donald’ Trump will wash his hands & remain impartial as Christ Christie is sentenced by the “Press” to crucifixion just for being asked by Ivana to serve as Vice President!
(We predict Christ Christie will bargain his sentence down to public flogging, and eventually have it dismissed. We predict Christie WILL BE Pontius Trump’s running mate. God bless New Jersey.)
