I just had to share this new (to me) word with you guys, brought to my attention by Language Log (there's a questionable word in it, so I won't link directly to the entry of October 22, 2005, English the most idiosyncratic and wordy?).

My husband coined the term 'vurp', after a work breakfast the other day, then, in a flurry of creativity, the 'vough', the 'fough' and the 'faugh' followed. He thinks there are many more waiting to be discovered/invented.

A friend of mine came up with the word shload. It's more of a contraction though so it should more properly be written/typed sh'load.
