frankenbite
 n.— «The reality stories have a beginning and middle and end, shaped by writers who are called not writers but “story editors” or “segment producers,” who use the expression “frankenbites” (after Dr. Frankenstein’s monster) to describe the art of switching around contestant sound bites recorded at different times and patched together to create what appears to be a seamless narrative.» —“Reality Is Only An Illusion, Writers Say” by William Booth in L.A. Washington Post Aug. 10, 2004.
