The English major in me is thrilled at the prospect of spasmastical logogenesis.

The MeFite in me is concerned that "This website is owned and operated by James Gang Advertising Inc."

That is, I wouldn't be surprised if the following domains were spontaneously registered in the next few days.

What fun! Love the post mjjj. I'm a neologaholic, for sure. Verbotomy bookmarked, bam. Vigormortis is my fav for the definition To be physically overcome by a sudden illness, disability, or even death when asked to participate in unrewarding activities -- like work, or household chores.

Doesn't seem fair that The James Gang gets the ownership of others' inventions though. Still, cool site.

Apparently 'malinger' isn't good enough for these people.

Several of my own neologisms:

Galactigasm - An orgasm caused by the new Battlestar Galactica. Coined during the first broadcast of the episode Exodus Pt. 2. Adama Maneuver. LAWL.

Jossaholic - Someone who is addicted to the works of Joss Whedon. These works contain the Jossahol, which many find terribly addicting.

And my favorite:

Addorifying - Something that is both extremely cute and intensely frightening.

My cats, and I assume all functional cats, perform the behavior I've coined "investismelling".

a snorgasm is when the husband climaxes after the wife has fallen asleep.

Didn't they just reinvent sniglets?

chuckly, "investismelling" sounds more like one of my mutual funds.

Vesticulate: To have a favorite article of clothing with which you develop a personal, and even a deeply fulfilling, relationship.

Nice little game, madamjujujive.

Cool design and illustrations.

Creating new words is fun, but as soon as you have more than 30 or 40 entries, voting (and even reading them) becomes boring. Needs tweaking.
