I add an f to anything that isnt real or a copy cat or a someone who is just a plain phoney.(similar to the word faux)

fuggs-fake uggs

Foctor- fake doctor

foach- fake coach bag

Folitician - fake, phoney or unreal politician

fallstreet- wallstreet Ironic actually

Just to go off on a tangent, I wonder if making up words might come naturally to ADDers who talk too fast to keep up with their thoughts...

In second thought, there already are some made up words that aren't really new words, just common ways to mesh up words. For example, "Gotcha". lol

How's this for a new word?
Moozers = Cows

:lol: Actually, I copied the idea from a Youtuber, so I cheated :p

Has anyone read The meaning of Liff ( by Douglas Adams???

It's a collection of all place names in the UK. Each place name describes a common event, thought or emotion that regularly happens to people but for which there is no word to describe it..yet.

My favourite one is below. Since I've read it (many, many years ago), I can never help laughing when I have to pass someone in the corridor. :D

The moment at which two people approaching from opposite ends of a long passageway, recognise each other and immediately pretend they haven't. This is to avoid the ghastly embarrassment of having to continue recognising each other the whole length of the corridor.
To avert the horrors of corrievorrie (q.v.) corriecravie is usually employed. This is the cowardly but highly skilled process by which both protagonists continue to approach while keeping up the pretence that they haven't noticed each other - by staring furiously at their feet, grimacing into a notebook, or studying the walls closely as if in a mood of deep irritation.
The crucial moment of false recognition in a long passageway encounter. Though both people are perfectly well aware that the other is approaching, they must eventually pretend sudden recognition. They now look up with a glassy smile, as if having spotted each other for the first time, (and are particularly delighted to have done so) shouting out 'Haaaaaallllloooo!' as if to say 'Good grief!! You!! Here!! Of all people! Will I never. Coo. Stap me vitals, etc.'
The dreadful sinking sensation in a long passageway encounter when both protagonists immediately realise they have plumped for the corriedoo (q.v.) much too early as they are still a good thirty yards apart. They were embarrassed by the pretence of corriecravie (q.v.) and decided to make use of the corriedoo because they felt silly. This was a mistake as corrievorrie (q.v.) will make them seem far sillier.
Corridor etiquette demands that one a corriedoo (q.v.) has been declared, corrievorrie must be employed. Both protagonists must now embellish their approach with an embarrassing combination of waving, grinning, making idiot faces, doing pirate impressions, and waggling the head from side to side while holding the other person's eyes as the smile drips off their face, until with great relief, they pass each other.
Word describing the kind of person who can make a complete mess of a simple job like walking down a corridor.

I always say I have weakpeelies (short sightedness.) Peelies is an aboriginal word for eyes, but don't ask me if I've spelled it right.
