Believe it or not, at the classical Christian school at which I teach, I have one of the students write the Sniglet for the day on the board. I've also had students try to come up with their own Sniglets, and then I let them write them on the board (if they're any good).
A few good examples of Sniglets are the following: Bleemus (blee' mus) - n. The disgusting film on the top of soups and cocoa that sit out for too long.
Blithwapping - v. Using anything BUT a hammer to hammer a nail into the wall, such as shoes, lamp bases, doorstops, etc.
Doork (dawrk) - n. A person who always pushes on a door marked "pull" or vice versa.
Hozone (ho' zohn) - n. The place where one sock in every laundry load disappears to.
My favorite use of a Sniglet word came just a week or two ago. The class had seen the word "spratchet" on the board, which is the made up name for the piece of plastic that's used to divide one shopper's items from another in a grocery store. I kept telling my high school class that we ought to all begin using the word "spratchet" and see if it catches on. I'm not sure if any of them ever took my suggestion. But a week or two ago I was in WalMart with my son when I dared him to ask the woman in front of us to please pass the spratchet. He wrestled with the idea for more than a minute and finally mustered up the nerve (after some prodding from me).Read more ›
