daily candy vocabulary

The New York Times recently ran an article featuring Daily Candy's newest book, entitled "Words That Don't Exist but Should". I'm not an avid DC reader, but I definitely got a laugh out of some of the words, including 'manbiguous' (a quality in a man by which his behavior, sexual or otherwise, raises questions about his sexual orientation) and 'mouse potato' (the wired generation's answer to the couch potato). 

NIck Olsen of the Daily Dose had me laughing out loud when he wrote about a badly designed West Elm headboard by saying, 'I'm now putting down my bottle of Hatorade.' The word is a new personal favorite of mine.

What are your favorite made up words?
