What word or phrase have YOU (to the best of your knowledge) coined that you wish would take off.

In the forum tradition of
What are you saying, is it good?

I ask what word have you coined that you made up that you think should get more traction or you think is hilarious

This morning I thought of one:
Crap + happening => Crappening

Usage
The news is just one long crappening. Its just too much crappening. Stop the crappening.

Anyway, I thought it was funny.

  • I like portmanteaus.
    Two of mine are:
    fecundamentalist: "making more babies for Jesus"
    necrofederates: those who are in love with the myth of Dixie

  • Salami Legume = a Muslim- (and vegan-) friendly sausage

  • Yeastie Boys = men with thrush.

  • I don’t know if I coined it, but people say they’ve never heard it when I use it, it’s the term “craptastic”. When something is so crappy it’s almost impressive

    I also use craptastic. Its a word that describes itself.

    Hmm, I'm starting to notice a scatalogical trend to my choice of words.

  • My favourite misuse of a word was when my dad said, “You listen to so much reggae I think you’re going to become a Rasputin.”

    Pretty sure Bart Simpson coined that back in the early 90s.

  • My siblings and I used to add “of Doom” to any of our personal belongings that could be potentially weaponized upon provocation...I doubt we were the only kids to ever do this, but we didn’t know anyone else who did.
    Unhand those LEGOs or meet the wrath of my Blocks of Doom.

    My wife calls them raphodisiacs.

    She once got tongue tied and accidentally called dill pickle chips, chill dickle pips. The fun never ends.

    It wasn’t mine, but my brother in law once referred to my sister as his “caboncupine”. Works on so many levels...

    A friend of mine and I used to drop “ninaldequist” and various derivatives (ninaldequism, ninaldequistic, etc.) into conversations in the hope that people would infer a meaning and reuse it as they saw fit, with the end aim of propagating a new word into the english language which had somehow found its own meaning. Not happened yet, unfortunately.

    I could swear that there is a movie where a character says, “yo chill, dickle pips!” May have been Samuel L. Jackson. 😄

  • My near circle of friends works bizarrism as sport.

    Pornshower is a new music style we are trying to make mainstream. Groups like Flying Lotus or TwoFeet are exponents from this style.

    We used to get regular abuse from someone via the phone at home, in one heated exchange I wanted to say **nt...but conciously tried to change it to twat....out came twunt....those listening in (Mrs and a couple of daughters) found it highly amusing and I never lived it down, them saying I am useless in an argument....

    Apparently it's a real word now :D

    Colombo - pretending to be an idiot to gain the advantage.

    I have used this since I was a little dude watching the show Colombo on TV with my Dad.
    When I see someone doing this, I say they are “pulling a Colombo.”
    If the person was the one deceived, they got “Colomboed.”

  • You’re all completely mixed up, messed up and funked up.

    Does the Colomboer have to reveal the deception starting with the phrase “Just one more thing” ?

    I will be using it from this point on.
    Brilliant!

    That part was my favorite. :)
    You could always see the suspect trying not to crap their pants when Colombo dropped that parting question. Just when he seems to be leaving, and they think they got away with it, too.
