WORD UP: MUSLIMMIVASION
Once upon a time, two words met and fell in love. One was called immigration and the other was called invasion. They had a common interest in large groups of people moving around, and on the basis of this they decided to get married and settle down, quickly producing an offspring called immivasion. This young child naturally shared characteristics of both parents, and seemed to have a bright future describing the demographic confusion of an increasingly over-globalized world.
But before immivasion could properly grow up to be a fully mature word, and included in all the big, official dictionaries, the naive young thing went for a walk and ran into a much older and often evil word, Muslim.
He had successfully obscured much of his dark past by having his etymology "delisted" so that few people actually knew what he meant. When asked to define himself, he invariably said he was synonym of peace, a particularly popular word at that time.
