A book by Mary Shelley in which a man by the surname of Frankenstein discovers a method of creating life, and in doing so creates a monster whom he then abandons. The monster's life is a living Hell from that point forward, and he eventually sets out to get revenge upon his maker. The story has symbolic references to many things, including the importance of parenting and the evils of playing God. Either way, a firmly held belief among morons is that the monster's name was Frankenstein, when in fact the monster was never named.

No gothic castles, fortuitously-timed electrical storms or god complexes required for this kind of assembly. Term introduced on the Handyman for the Common Man web TV show.
