SNIGLETS

Have you ever heard of a sniglet?

SNIGLET: A WORD THAT DOES NOT APPEAR IN THE DICTIONARY BUT SHOULD

I stumbled across the book SNIGLETS in grammar school. I can still remember some of the words in there. As a matter of fact, there was a word in there that I referred to one of my mothers boyfriends by. Even she couldn't help but laugh at it. Here are some of my favorite sniglets:

Ingosecond ‒ Seeing yourself about to do something stupid but following through anyway. For example, closing your car door and seeing that your finger is going to get smashed, but closing the door anyway.

Backspackle (bak' spak uhl) - n. Markings on the back of one's shirt from riding a fenderless bicycle.

Doork (dawrk) - n. A person who always pushes on a door marked "pull" or vice versa.

Facon - n. The fake bacon bits served at cheap salad bars

Hozone (ho' zohn) - n. The place where one sock in every laundry load disappears to.

Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

Yinkel - n. A person who combs his hair over his bald spot, hoping no one will notice.

PIYAN (pi' an) - n. ( acronym: "Plus If You Act Now" ) Any miscellaneous item thrown in on a late night television ad.


(To see more just Google SNIGLETS)

So does anybody out there use their own made up words to describe certian things? Feel free to share.

P.S. Imagine the amusement of spell checking this post LOL

Yes we have a few.
Distle- half way between a mist and a drizzle. We get alot of here on the coast. Usage: I tell my wife that she had better take her coat because it is distleing outside.
Nipplenator- the television. Derived from the old usage of the phrase "boob tube" for the television. Usage: On a Saturday we will hook into the nipplenator for a while and veg out.
Scermudgen- a little bit. Not really sure where we got this one. Usage: Could I have a scermudgen more of those potatoes.

For those pet owners out there, how about:

Doggus interruptus - when your dog interupts sex.

Cattus interrupus - when your cat interupts sex.

Infanterruptus - When the baby screams to be fed seconds after penetration

I've used this word...POO-SCOOTS. It's a description of someone going on and on about their rotten ... day, life, sex life, dinner, night of sleep...pretty much anything they can think of to whine about...
I say "poo-scoots" to all those people who aren't having as much fun as we are on this site.

My own created sniglets from years of writing angst ridden Gen-x crap...

Drismal (adj) used to describe a rainy day. As in it's drizzling and its dismal. Used perhaps to describe a day when it's distleing outside.

Parentathy (v) showing a-typical hatred, resentment and rebellion against ones parents

Bonktail (n) a cocktail made with bong water as it's key ingredient. waste not want not.

fun - those are some good ones. Distle is one I can really relate to having worked an outside job for the past 5 years.

Byte - LOL yeah those are good ones. Had the dog and cat ones happen and feel bad for those who have had Infanterruptus - no quick fix to that one, you HAVE to put sex on hold and attend to it.

3sum - that's definately a good one. Maybe I'll start using that instead of crab-ass whiney bitches. LOL

mz - LOL I agree

nietchze - that Bonktail really makes me laugh. Gross but funny.

stoptimization - when approaching a red light, deciding which lane will allow the quickest forward progress

flipadip - election; coloquial term referring to when one would pull down a flipper on a voting machine to vote for some dip. Generally used to describe the first Monday in November, as: Hey, its Flipadip Day!

Not sure if this fits the category, since it would also go with Jeff Foxworthy's Southern Terms. Dunnami....I actually said this to my wife, then realized what I said: "Are you dunnami knife ?" Of course what I tried to say was: Are you "done with my knife ?" She was using my pocket knife while putting Christmas decorations away !!!

Of course a Foxworthy classic is: widjadidja, As in, "You didn't bring your truck widjadidja ???" For the un-informed, {with you, did you} !!! Peace !!! Cabo !!!
