LOL!

I like Ninjury. Too true:)
I'm going to use this to describe my 3 yr old son's boo-boo's.

Thank you for visiting my TT last week. This week I'm thanking my fellow TTer's. Come by and get your thanks!
 
ROFL! That made my day! Happy TT!
 
Prestofrigeration- love it. Great list. Happy TT.
 
Great list! Fauxcabulary rocks ;)
 
Very funny! Love the list!
 
Those are too funny.

Wasn't there a comedian who made up words like this? Rich Little?
 
Great words, I like language TT's!
Thanks for visiting Maia's picture show.
 
I love the creativity involved in the formation of these words. I think of myself as a creative person, but these put me to shame.
 
What a hoot! I'm going and checking out last weeks as well :-) When the kawashock happens I'm usually left the ramthestupidthing feeling.
 
Love these! We were just talking about sniglets (I'd forgotten that great terminology) the other night, and I remembered some great ones I'd read on someone's blog--I'd forgotten it was your blog. And now there are new ones!!
 
lol I love sniglets.

Dying @ ninjury.
 
Oh, these are blilliant. Thank you! Now I'm off to call some of my workmates obliviots. :o)
 
AI YI YI! Those are absolutely hilarious. So funny! I love sniglets, and those are delightful.

Happy T13, and thanks for visiting mine!
 
*rofl* Thanks for the laughs, chica! Happy T13!
 
Thanks for the laugh. I think my favorite might be Obliviot. I know so many of these.
 
Ok those are too funny! Super TT.
 
Interesting words, Darla!
 
Obliviot is my favorite, too. Describes most of the general populace, I fear.
 
Ha! Pretty funny, Happy TT13!
 
I love Rich Hall's Sniglets! My all-time favorite is psychophobia -- the compulsion to look behind the shower curtain when using someone else's bathroom. :D Too bad the books went out of print -- they're hard to come by these days.
