Making a Mockery of the Whole New Words Thing

Yesterday morning (Ohio time) John Scalzi, blogger and SF writer declared "Today is International Make Up a Word Day". Well played Mr Scalzi. Well played.

A few from the comments:

Pectobarophobia - Fear of large breasts.

Rivenator: A descriptor for any role in which Summer Glau kicks serious
ass.

Quinzipple — (v) to increase by a magnitude of five zillion.

I have a use for all three of these and some others, damn it, so I can't even claim that these are just neologisms for the hell of it.
