Word Game or Amutterance **ZOMBIE THREADSPOTTING**


This might be an interesting little exercise in experimental etymology. Here are the ground rules. I'll post a fabricated word at the end of this to get us started.

The next poster must then provide a definition of that word and follow it with their own contrivance. Ready? Good, here ye go.

Actually, laundromancy is the art of divining the future by gazing into the washing machine during spin cycle.

A globiac is a fanatically optimistic internationalist, identified by the bumper sticker on their Volvo: "One World...One People...Please."
