I wanted to start a thread so people on this site could lower their blood pressure by releasing their Sniglets. In case you haven't heard, a sniglet is a word that should be in the dictionary (according to you) but isn't..

Ok, so I'll start it off with a couple I came up with

1) "Grostusting" -- Gross and disgusting, pretty self-evident

2) "Anticipointment" -- When you are at a restaurant waiting for your food, the server comes by with some steaming plates of goodness, you clear your area in anticipation, and then they walk on by and deposit the plates at the next table.

My favorite is bovilexia: the urge to shout "Moo!" at a herd of cows as you drive or bicycle past them.

Lol. There's something primally soothing about uttering the word, moo, it's kind of like a mantra.

The UK version of this game is the Uxbridge English Dictionary, which contains definitions of real words which other dictionaries forgot to include.

For example Xenophobia: fear of Buddhists.

A lot of people have done that, myself included:redface:

I remember driving by a pasture full of cows with a carload of kids and the kids all shouted "Moo". It was like some kind of herd behavior.

Were you driving the kids around in that "plant" car that you have as your avatar?

That coupe is too small for a car load of kids. I used the sedan instead.

I can't seem to come up with a sniglet. This afternoon I was laying out in the sun and thinking about it until my brain was totally "stupifried". groan

Its defined as fear of strangers and foriegners.


Now zenophoia would be better as a fear of zen or xenaphobia as a fear of Xena the Warrior Princess...

Hmm. So what is the sheep equivalent? I've witnessed people going "baaaa" near sheep. I'm still not sure if they were trying to communicate innocently, or just in desperate need of a date... :biggrin:

Ovislexia. ??

It is amazing how many people mimic animals. I wonder if it comes from an ancient deeply rooted need to get them to come closer?

It could be called onomatopocompulses in sniglet format.

If you say that quickly, one might think it's an obsession with sitting on tomatoes.

Probably. But then why is (e.g.,) the Lyre bird able to mimic such an incredible variety of sounds so perfectly? Even chainsaws. (I'm sure it doesn't really want a chainsaw to "come closer".)

Cinamuck: That sticky substance found on movie theater floors.

(This is not my original: it was actually aired on one of the original Not Necessarily the News episodes with Rich Hall.)

"Cartuning" -- jockeying your car slightly forward at a stop, trying to improve radio reception.
