Sniglets

I've been reading through these funny words that aren't really words, but should be - over at unwords.com. Here are some of my favorites!

intaxication (ĭn-tăk'sĭ-kā'shən)

  1. a. (n.) Euphoria at getting a refund from the IRS, which lasts until one realizes it was one's own money to start with.

bozone (bō-zōn')

  1. a. (n.) The area around stupid people which prevents creative ideas from penetrating. Unfortuantely, the bozone shows no sign of disentigration in the near future.

sarchasm (sär'kăz'əm)

  1. a. (n.) The abyss between the creator of witticisms and the intended recipient who does not find the humor in it.

spubbling (spŭb'əl'ĭng)

  1. a. (v.) The superhuman feat of trying to wash one's hands and manipulate the "water saving" faucets at the same time.

pedaeration (pĕd'âr-ā'shən)

  1. a. (n.) Achieving perfect body heat by having one leg under the sheets and one hanging off the edge of the bed.

dopeler effect (dōp'lər ĭ-fĕkt')

  1. a. (n.) The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
  2. b. (n.) The tendancy of ideas to seem smarter immidiately before you say them, and thus branding you an idiot.

Those are great--loved the first one. I must reside in the bozone!!! I think pedaeration has something to do with menopause ; )

Thanks for a good laugh.

Love intaxification. This is the first year I must pay and I am in total distress. Thanks for a great laugh!

How funny! I love random made up words...I'll have to look at the sites...the ones you picked were hilarious.

I am not a stalker so I commented so I was a "Hi, new friend"! I found your blog on LDSWOMENBLOGS! Thanks for making me laugh!

Dopeler effect!
Spubbling!

They all connect, ya know?

I liked the last one.
Where I live, not many people use the blinkers anyway. Apparently I'm supposed to read their mind to know that they want to change lanes on the freeway.

Whitney said...

Oh man. I do the "pedaeration" all the time!!! ALL the time. We even use a fan!! ha ha

Sarchasm sort of defines me.

The only thing is that after 39 years of life, I'm starting to think it's that some of my jokes just aren't funny.
