The Snicker's campaign got me thinking about Sniglets. Back in the 80's commedian Rich Hall invented Sniglets (Any Word That Doesn't Appear In The Dictionary, But Should).

Here are some examples I found online.

Accordionated (ah kor' de on ay tid) - adj. Being able to drive and refold a road map at the same time.

Aeroma (ayr oh' ma) - n. The odor emanating from an exercise room after an aerobics workout.

Anaception (an a sep' shun) - n. The body's ability to actually affect television reception by moving about the room.

Begathon - n. A multi-day event on public television, used to raise money so you won't have to watch commercials.

Caffidget (ka fij' it) - v. To break up a Styrofoam coffee cup into several hundred pieces after consuming its contents.

Cheedle (chee' dul) - n. The residue left on one's fingertips after consuming a bag of Cheetos.

Crummox (noun): The amount of cereal leftover in the box that is too little to eat and too much to throw away

Go read the list, I'm laughing too hard to continue.
