A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.

One who imitates the look of bohemians, but is just a poser. A faux-hemian pretends that they just "throw" their messy outfits together, when really it took them four hours at Urban Outfitters.
"Ugh, did you see how hard X is trying to be boho?! She thinks she looks like Mary Kate... but I know she gets up at 5:00 to be ready for school at 7:00. What a faux-hemian!"

A trend in which folks pretend to live out the lives of poor individualists, while maintaining their financial security, and often using it to carry out this fantasy.

A conformist passing herself off as a nonconformist by going to great lengths to conform to an allegedly nonconforming alternative conformity rather than conforming to the mainstream conformity that she thinks is stiflingly conformist.

Marked by a notable lack of originality and creativity, an absence of genuine artistic talent, and carefully maintained escape routes so that she can give up the game when it stops being convenient.
It costs her a lot of money to look so down-and-out." "Yeah, fauxhemianism is an expensive lifestyle.

Conforming to a safe, middle class lifestyle but with the superficial pretense of an alternative or Bohemian lifestyle.
People who live in Stoke Newington or read The Guardian may like to believe they maintain the values of their radical student days but the shallowness of their fauxhemian conceit would quickly be revealed if they were expected to sacrifice some aspect of their comfortable lives.
