Have you invented any words for things that have no simple word to describe them? Or perhaps a simple expression you made up?

I made up the word "Farg". It's what results when you let one go in the shower. Please visualize Pigpen from peanuts and the little cloud that hangs about him. :eek:

Anyhoo- do you have any?

You know what me and my friend made up a word. It's SUPERBALOCIOUS. It's when your pants get stuck behind the tongue of your shoes. I don't know how it got started but I use it this day.

How about "fartfignewton"? It's what you do when you've had one too many cookies.

Or "difugalty"? A corroption of "difficulty".

Good grief, I've corropted curruption!

Dang, I've done it again!

Ive used the word "begiddle" occasionally. Begiddle is basically the start and middle of something, but never the ending. For example, lets say you wanted to know about a particular movie, i would go about explaining it through the begiddle of the movie, but wouldnt go into the conclusion of it. Begiddle originated when i was attempting to explain what Episode 2 was like, some people were curious how it was and i meant to say, "Would you like to know the beginning or middle parts of it?" and ended up saying "Would you like to know the begiddle of it?" Hence, the creation of begiddle.

"schnibbles" : those little shreddy pieces of paper left over after cutting something out with a scissors.

Hey, "shreddy": that's a new one I just made up to help define "schnibbles."

I've got some good movie theater made-up words.

"Cinedraft": That mysterious breeze that grabs your money once you slide it through the small hole in the box office window.

"Juujuu-spection": Holding your Juujuubees up to the movie screen to determine what color they are while in a darkened theater.

"Curdundancy": The pointless opening and closing of the movie screen curtain between previews and the feature presentation.

"Cinemuck": The combination of popcorn, soda and melted chocolate which covers the floors of movie theaters.

:silly:

I made up word mutations.

"Pigs" became PLOAGLOWS or I would say "The ploaglow guys"
"Puppies" became POOPENZOOKS.
"Kitty Cats" became "KITTENKANS"
"Squirrels" became THERE-EE-IZZES, because I would always taunt the dogs by saying "THERE HE IS!!!!!!!!!!" while pointing up at the tree.

No offense KH, but that is a really dopey sounding word(even considering this is a thread about dopey words) to substitute fart. I wonder if your mother could stomach the word that Philip Seymour Hoffman's charachter Sandy Lyle used in ALONG CAME POLLY when he told Ben Stiller that the had to leave the party, NOW!!!:D

Or I would just cop it out and say, "DARN THEM BARKING SPIDERS!!!!!!

Or if you are sitting on the floor you can say, "Them dang carpet frogs!!!!":D

Snigtad and Flornbi.. damn you Chux, I tried figuring out the anagram for hours spread over weeks...... :beard:

I use a couple of made up words from time to time...
I have a good made-up french word "Fetard" pronounced "Fay-tard" it basically is a sort of curse, or can be used to describe something that's completely messed up or useless

"Fauve" (rhymes with "stove") is a term that means "enough", like a few or a couple, it is the next one up from that, like as in "parking shouldn't be too rough, I can see fauve spots from here"

And this one you need to use a "pirate voice" to say it right... "flartin ararnd the Barrrrm".... you can alternately use the word "barm" by itself, works like Fetard but you can just exclaim "arrrr, it's BARM" like that
"Flarting ararnd" in the "Barm" is when you are sort of doing something that is non-productive, like when a project gets bogged down, but you keep at it without really making any progress..... or just plain goofing off
:Pirate:

I didn't make it up, that credit goes to Gary Owens (of "Laugh-In" fame for you whippersnappers), for the follwing word I've adopted into my vocabulary:

Insegrievious

It sounds learned, can be applied anywhere, and most people are too intimidated to challenge it as a real word. lol

Here are a few more I find pretty funny.

Charp: The green, mutant pototo chip found in every bag.

Backspackle: Markings on the back of one's shirt when riding a fenderless bicycle.

Vacation Elbow: A condition that suddenly develops in a father's arm during a vacation trip that allowed him to reach out and slap you from incredible distances.

P-spot: The area directly above the urinal in public restrooms that men stare at, knowing a glance in any other direction would arouse suspicion.

As far as I'M concerned, half of modern spoken English is full of unintentionally funny made-up words. People are so stupid and sloppy these days.

"Gription". While I don't stake claim as to having invented this word, it's nonethless one of my favorites. A hybrid of the words "grip" and "traction". For example: "The ice is slippery! I can't get any gription!"

Corporate speak that enters modern English usage annoys me. Like combining spacious and safe to get 'spafe'. it's not even clever it's just dumb.

One that really annoys me is the word 'discusage'. I believe a member of the US administration at a press conference used that one. dumbass.

I tend to refer to squirrels as 'skwiggles'. And my dog as a 'puppy-wulluff' (wolf)

something nice and tasty or comfortable or really pleasurable I call 'scrumlicious' (delicious and scrumptious)

when someone says something totally spot on in agreeance with me I say 'prezactly' (precisely and exactly) and it's best said in a long drawn out smug way.

There is actually a word out there that describes making a single word by combining two words. I wish I could remember it. It was a good vocab word.

I read this on a website and I kind of like it.... newstrusion = news intrusion.


You know how when your team plays in the 4:00 p.m. slot, the half-time 12 minutes are split between a slimmed down NFL halftime (where you don’t nearly get as much highlights as you would like) and the dreaded “local news” headlines?

Douglas Coupland's great book "Generation X" has a glossary of new english terms: historical underdosing being one of my favorites. It means constantly watching the news just to stuff happen - yet nothing interesting ever seems to happen, hence giving us an "underdose".

Kind of like trolling around here day after day, month after month, year after year..... just to see what $5 figures are going to come out next. lol

Two my daughter has come up with that has made me laugh is Megacerator for refrigerator and Flug it for Plug it. Now my wife and I often tell each other to Go Flug it!

Another one I came up with was Brainwangfth which simply means that you and someone else are on the same brain wave length. Strange how a simple tounge of the tie can lead to some strange words . . .

Forgive me if this was posted previously, I didn't take the time to read the whole thread:

Nerbler (v) - To Nerbler; Nerblering, Nerblered

A person Nerblering types posts in such a manner as to seem dim-witted and or developmentally delayed, simply to laugh at the reaction said posting may cause.

SEE: Thespar - the original Nerbler himself.

When my friend's kids were like one and three and he'd see one of them doing something that would potentially lead to injury or property damage, he would run towards them to stop that from occurring and he'd yell, in mock shock and panic, "UmbaNObabyJesus!!!!"
