The ones about the doggie do and the cold butter made me snort. Thx for the laugh!
I've always loved ohnosecond, and youthemism is great - we've got loads of those at our house.
Love the sniglets, especially the wondracide. Happy TT.
I've had a couple of ohnoseconds, and I love #9 and #10, and ... well so many of them.
I know all about rignition and shoegating. My kids are masters of the latter.

Funny list!
I used to be into scribblics, but then I bought nicer pens. And no, I'm not going to launch into the story of my favorite pen. I'll save it for later.
I think Vodkracy would go over wonderfully in the UN.
Some of those made me laugh, like #3 - pretty clever :-)

Happy TT13
Oh, those are cute -- I read them out loud to hubby! Thanks for the giggle fit! :)

Happy T13, and thanks for visiting mine.
My fave is number two! I've had the feeling so many times it's only right that it have a name.
I'm Number One!

-- the Mouse Potato
Oh I've had my share of Ohnoseconds...too many actually! What a fun post!
Okay this was hyterical. Thanks so much for the laugh. I think ohnosecond is a word that I commonly experience.

Great words, I love these lists!
Thanks for visiting my IJmuiden TT. Sorry I'm this late for my return visit!
