Tailorize (user submission)

During a non-profit board meeting: “Our program is tailorized and customized to the individual to ensure each participant receives what he or she needs.”

Rich from Lawrence, Kansas, submitted this “sighting” a while back, and I found it while cleaning out my comments box (My apologies, Rich!). What struck me about this one was not only the absurdity of adding to an already serviceable verb (and thus converting it into an adjective), but also the redundancy of the second non-verb.
