This teaser is based on 'funny' alternative definitions a word could have if you broke the word up into its syllables and treated the syllables as words in themselves. I will provide a list of words or names and a list of definitions, it is your job to match them up.

They are meant to be a bit light hearted and may not have perfect pronunciation so work the words in your head a bit. Having the definitions should provide help in this regard. Also note that sometimes the 'new word' syllables may not only be using one syllable in the word.

An example would be:
Word: Contemplate "Con template": A stencil that criminals are made from.

Words:
Primate
Innovation
Awesome
Control
Bernadette

Definitions:
A short, ugly inmate
The act of removing your spouse from in front of the TV
A rousing applause for the motel/hotel
The act of torching a mortgage
A unit of measurement for the number of rowing implements used
