Sniglets

By

Sniglets: An interesting word and a funny concept popularized by stand-up comedian Rich Hall. Sniglets are words that don't appear in the dictionary, but should.
They're also words that should appear on the Internet, and do! Bert Christensen's Truth & Humour Collection has compiled a big list o' Sniglets and daffy definitions without the spirobits (the frayed bits of left-behind paper in a spiral notebook).
Snappy Sample Sniglets:
  • Spagellum (spa gel' um) - n. The loose strand on each forkful of spaghetti that beats one about the chin and whiskers.
  • Pupkus (pup' kus) - n. The moist residue left on a window after a dog presses its nose to it.
  • Table Snorkeling (tay' bul snawrk' ling) - n. Frantic gesticulations when one bites into hot food and has to take in air to cool it off.
