made up words

believe it or not, a friend of mine helped me write a perl program to generate words* like the ones dustbury found in his spam folder - so i had at least as much fun coming up with some definitions for them as he did:
  • "viscent" - n. - a small coin minted in honor of a viscount.
  • "simposconcia" - n. - the practice of electing morons to positions of leadership.
  • "gramazing" - adj. - in a manner that elicits wonder in cows.
  • "reextruch" - v. - a medical term for the action of giving yourself leg cramps
  • "matempendully" - adj. - in a manner similar to the flabby upper arms of a maternal ancestor.
  • "recroutratess" - n. - a woman who serves seconds at a german restaurant.
and two of them are proper names.
  • "disgroonesset" is the name of a massachusetts island, derived from the algonquin words for "fever and vomiting".
  • "squero" is a vehicle produced by a pontiac-scion joint venture.
