Let's see if anyone is interested in this. We can start a fake dictionary of terms, but you must include a definition with a descriptive sentence. It doesn't have to be posted alphabetically, screw that greek shit. Here is my first entry:

Tilapathy (pronounced Til-A-Pathy) The ability of certain species of fish to communicate with their minds. As in: The tilapia used its innate power of tilapathy to rule the other fish fish today, the world tomorrow.

Actually in the 80's at this Irish school where I did my schooling we had a word for a zig-zaggy object/road/line.

Or we making up zany definitions or words that can be used seriously in a conversation?

Zany
Qosking- The act of kicking off while sitting in a chair with wheels and coasting across the room.

Sentence- The other day Fred and I were fired when the boss caught us qosking between cubicles. So we qosked him out the 17th story window.

Ok, I admit that I didn't think to go back and see if thei had already been done. The word poped inot my head yesterday evening and I had this idea, but I suppose I should have looked first. Embarassed

I am now going to punish myself for a while. I would say "I'll go beat myself for it" but that isn't reallly a punishment, now is it? Wink Wink nudge nudge say no more.
