(In other words: I've noticed my wacky and verbose circle of friends has been busy this week making up juicy new words.)
Ralph the Dodger:
snoitatulas -- reverse salutations, applicable in most social situations which call for the reverse of an introductory greeting.
Sir Rino of Nomos:
improbe -- definition in flux; early citings indicate a verb evoking overtones of intrusion; and/or a violent variant of the verb improve. (However, this forecast is tempered by Sir Rino's history of linguistic capriciousness.)
hysterious -- a morphological juxtaposition of hilarious and hysterical.
gahboooleah -- an exclusive and melodious tribal exclamatory; used in moments of extreme positive emotion.
yours truly (me):
spendiferous -- distinguished by an elevated level of monetary expenditure, as in, "Oh dahling, such a spendiferous afternoon at Saks!"
dismayful -- having the quality of causing woe.
loserish -- being marked by an uncommon degree of lameness.
(Linguists should note that the expansive possibilities inherent in the tandem usage of the latter two entries has already propelled them into popular usage among the etymologically hip and happening, thus: loserishlydismayful; alternatively, dismayfullyloserish.)

Well, now... anyone brave enough to attempt some sort of poetical ditty using alllll those doozies?
This might call for something mondo beyondo. Virtual M&Ms are, of course, the Beehive's signature award (yes, it all started here) for our faithful readers' delightful contributions. However, wethinks such a quirksome literary feat as this, and during Christmas break at that, might call for a generous bestowing of something more auspicious and distinguished. As in...
we might have to whup out the
Virtual Dig-Atomic Psychodelectable Chocolicious Asteroid Bombs!
(DA BOMB, for short.)
(And yes, we DO read too much Calvin & Hobbes.)
And who knows?! Your response could be so unnerving!-- so overwhelming!-- that we would be forced to call on our ridiculously hip and dashingly handsome neighbor Jay Walker (yes, that's really his name) to judge the entries.
Bombard us! Dazzle us! Or just make us wince. You just never know what could happen here at the hive.
