¿Cómo se dice? (Is there a word for that?)
Neologisms — or “sniglets,” comic Rich Hall’s neologism for the concept — are words that don’t exist but should.
- Bozone n. The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating.
- Telecrastination n. The act of always letting the phone ring at least twice before answering.
I need help getting this one started (gotta have at least two answers to create a poll). Please write ideas in the comments below or e-mail me: email@example.com, with the subject line No. 6.
No. 6: THERE OUGHTA BE A WORD FOR:
In other words, Pope Francis, @, who pretty much went viral on his first tweet, stands at 475 utterances and 4.75 million followers. He’d have one of the highest … whatever this concept is. Monica Lewinsky’s another one: Her @ account has but 13 tweets with a whopping 78,100 followers. (I don’t follow either one of those. My own ratio thingie @terryism stands at press time at 811 tweets, 222 followers. Not too shabby!)
OR, who can give me more suggestions for this one to make things more interesting?
