ARS Neologisms

This things been going for just under 10 years now. I'm like the Samuel Pepys of the Internet age!

Anyway, in that time, I've created a lot of new words or phrases. Here's a summary of them:

  • THREVE: a word that means "all three," like how "both" means "all two." So when there are two things on the table and you say, "Give me both of them," you could also say of three things, "Give me threve of them." You can NOT use this word with the word "all," such as "Give me all threve of them." You would never say, "All both," so you can't say, "All threve." (invented Jan. 2005)
  • TRUMP CLASSY: a word that describes something not classy at all, but very expensive, so the person who spent all the money thinks it's classy. (invented 10 Apr. 2005)
  • FERPECT: a word that means "perfect" when used sarcastically. For instance, when you try to toss something into a trash can with precision, only to have it miss the can and burst open on the floor next to it, you could say, "Ferpect." (invented Nov. 2006)
  • EATING CHIPS: wasting your life in worthlessness. Used in a sentence, one would say, "He spent his early twenties eating chips." (invented 29 Mar. 2005)
  • VOMITOUS: likely to vomit. (invented 26 Jan. 2009)
  • ZNOOPY: Zombie Snoopy. (invented Nov. 2012)
  • TWIENER: a tiny wiener. (invented Dec. 2012)
  • SCALLION: a scandalous stallion. (invented Dec. 2012)
  • TRAVESTATE: devastate by means of a travesty. (invented Mar. 2013 by my daughter)
  • TO VERB: to make a verb out of a noun or adjective, even though such a verb already exists (for instance, "utilize" instead of "to use"). (invented 19 Apr. 2013)
  • ANNIHILISM: the pursuit of social policies that will most-assuredly destroy society. (invented 25 Apr. 2013)
  • RELIEVATORIUM: a truer-meaning word for restroom or bathroom. (invented 10 May 2013)
  • RESOLVENT: having brought a situation to a resolution. (invented 18 Dec. 2014)
  • APPROPARANOIA: appropriate paranoia. (invented 12 Oct. 2015)
  • ANTHROTHEISM: the belief that one should receive from all mankind the kind of attention and favor that is only available from God. (invented 7 Dec. 2015)

Here's to another ferpect decade of eating chips!
