Teh: an Internet slang neologism most frequently used as an English article, based on a common typographical error of "the". Teh has subsequently developed grammatical usages distinct from the. It is not common in spoken or written English outside technical or leetspeak circles, but when spoken, it is pronounced /tɛ/ or /tə/

Had to go to Wikipedia for this one. But…what the hell.

Who let the creeper in?

Just popped by AN for the first time in a long while...saw this thread and it reminded me of a word I recently learned.

callipygous: Relating to or having buttocks that are considered beautifully proportioned.

Don't know if this one's been mentioned yet (yeah, I'm lazy):

Will Shortz, the NYT crossword editor, has a favorite word:

"Ucalegon"

It's super-handy. It's defined as: a neighbor whose house is on fire or has burned down.

Ugh.

I'm not sure whether or not I should laugh?

How about:

It's good to have a word for everything!

I mean, literally.

All: Everything





I just saw this and had to post it:

"They call it a 'selfie' because 'narcissist' is too hard to spell".

Who let the creeper in?

Used to great effect in "Black Belt" by John Grant.
