Sniglet: (n) Word which should be in the dictionary, but isn't.

Do you all remember Sniglets? There was a whole book of them at one point- I may have even owned it. Anyway, I was thinking about nonsense words today and started looking up some of my favorite sniglets:

1. Skelepoo: dog shit which has turned white
2. Maizelpod: what appears in the toilet after eating corn
3. Fenderburg: frozen sludge attached to your car following a big snow storm
4. Arachnidiot: a person wildly flailing about after walking into a spiderweb
5. Gozinta: mathmatical symbol for division (2 gozinta 4 twice)
6. Decaflon: a grueling day spent consuming only things that are good for you
7. Hozone: that place the missing sock disappears to while doing laundry
8. Kedophobia: fear of having your shoelaces sucked underneath the escalator
9. Malibugaloo: dance done by barefoot beachgoers on really hot days. Also seen in subdivisions sporting blacktop driveways and asphalt streets.
10. Mowmuffins: clumps of cut grass which gather underneath the lawnmower
11. Osteopornosis: a degenerate disease
12. Phonesia: dialing the phone, and forgetting who you called before they answer
13. ohnosecond: that very short moment in time during which you realize that you have pressed the wrong key and deleted hours, days, or weeks of work
14. IMdecision: repeatedly erasing an IM text box because you change your mind about what you want to say
15. cinderellaware: software (demo or shareware) which becomes useless after a trial period unless the user pays for and registers it

Anywhooo.... those are some of my favorites. Anyone else have any?
