Mbogo, Dr. Fred

/*m-boh'goh, dok'tr fred/


n. The archetypal man you don't want to see about a problem, esp. an incompetent professional; a shyster.

"Do you know a good eye doctor?"

"Sure, try Mbogo Eye Care and Professional Dry Cleaning."

The name comes from synergy between bogus and the original Dr. Mbogo, a witch doctor who was Gomez Addams' physician on the old "Addams Family" TV show.
