Go ahead.Claim you invented a word or phrase now in widespread usage.I'll start you off:I reckon I introduced the word 'caned', meaning 'drunk', in London, 1984.Now I hear it everywhere.Anyone who says otherwise is a vexatious, unmitigated liar.

    I invented the phrase "cutting a sonorous swath" a couple of weeks ago in a work publication, but I don't think it's really catching on.

    maybe

    well, if it does catch on, that's immortality right there.

    HarveyCanal claims 'Justified Hip Hop'.
    As opposed to Credible Hip Hop, which is a desperate, judgement-laden lameness which will never find its way into a reputable dictionary.

    I really want to contribute something to this thraed, but unfortunately I got nothing. I can't even concoct a convincing story about how I invented something.


    Well, there's this: I may not have invented the phrase "sucks donkey nuts" (as in, "That new Larry the Cable guy movie sucks donkey nuts) but I feel that I have done a lot to try to popularize it. Variations include "sucks donkey balls," "sucks big donkey nuts," and "sucks big donkey balls."

    I just invented the word "guisis".

    pronounced gweeesis

    like gweeesis chwist? An Elmer Fuddism perhaps

    No-one want to claim BAPES or FOLK FUNK or RIVET HEAD?
    or even SKULLF**K?

  • I invented 'conosultant,' as a way to describe someone giving you wine/dining advice.

    My wife's recent malapropism of, 'double-edged whammy,' has really caught on amongst family and friends.

  • skelskel You can't cheat karma 5,028 Posts
    conosultant is good indeed

    a quasi portmanteau word.

    I'm going to introduce that in my neck of the woods and try to get worldwide acceptance. When the OED come knocking I will point them to this forum as the first recorded instance.
    Immortality looms for you. REJOICE!!!!

    Someone here invented the word "Rock-A-Logic" which is when you don't agree with something but can't argue it on merit because it's correct.

    Someone needs to submit this to Wiki.

    Yes. It refers specifically to verb606's thesis on the nature of guido-hood and any attendant natural laws that are discovered therein.

  • A few years ago, my brother came up with the word "grump" which is to take a dump after grubbing. A bunch of our friends and cousins still use this word today.

    It's fellatio received whilst defecating on the toilet.

  • Educatering: A DJ-specific term I came up with to describe catering to the crowd--giving them songs that they know--and then slipping in something similar but that they don't know--educating. Something I do all the time.

    I also say "chew your food" instead of "slow your roll."

    I just invented the phrase "the double-edged whammy from hell". Word to KVH.

    Can't really claim "carpetbaggeur", so I'll go with "club compliant".

    I thought it was just my friend Steve and his policewoman girlfriend/f**kbuddy who did that....

    Back in college, I had my friend convinced that I came up with "Taj MaTeeter" (a reference to those extra-large Harris Teeter grocery stores).

  • I invented the term "half-time" to refer to a rent-a-cop. like instead of "one time."

  • 'double-edged whammy,'

    By all means...I can't wait until my wife ends up on the phone with her friend in Chicago, and it gets back to her.

    We should make a concerted effort to spread all of these.

    By the same token, would they be '2-5'?

    That is now my mission. Thank you, sir. Is your wife's friend in the city? If so, it may take less time to spread. I live in the city, so if she's burbin' it, it will take a while.
