word jam — fictional definitions

Post by sasha » November 28th, 2018, 4:20 pm

One of my favorite ongoing jams at Arcanum was "Words Not In the Dictionary" - neologisms coined on the spot, either redefining an existing word, or altering it slightly in spelling to better drive home the pun. A few examples of the former:

moron - the fundamental particle of stupidity
zebra - support for ze breasts
penultimate - the best writing implement, ever

and of the latter:

knavy - a flotilla of rogues
wickerpedia - the online encyclopedia of basket weaving
iguano - lizard dung

My track record at getting jams rolling here ain't too good, but what the hey..... It's kinda fun

(and it's okay to have fun...)

...

any takers....?

To give the game a little structure, we imposed the constraint that the entries be made alphabetically. Since this begins with "b", the next one should be "c" - so I'm going with

champain: (n) the headache one experiences on January 2

next up - "d".........
