Neologistic Tendencies

As a person who makes shit up for a living I am a big fan of made up words. I just looked up Neologism on Wikipedia and found

In psychiatry, the term is used to describe the creation of words which only have meaning to the person who uses them. It is considered normal in children, but a symptom of thought disorder indicative of a psychotic mental illness such as schizophrenia in adults.

That concerns me a bit.

Saw this today. Not sure I like Satisfectellent. I Find it difficult and not fun to say. The fectellent part says "fecal infection" to me.
Not good for a brown bar shaped candy.
