Collusitatingly Convincing

15 May

collusitate – v. to substitute a made-up word in order to increase your perceived intelligence

Classical Usage:  That’s right, collusitate is not actually a word, but Sam seemed to do a fine job of fooling his audience, me included, that it was:

“I tell you now, Andy,” said Sam, with awful superiority, “don’t yer be a talkin’ ’bout what yer don’t know nothin’ on; boys like you, Andy, means well, but they can’t be spected to collusitate the great principles of action.”

Andy looked rebuked, particularly by the hard word collusitate, which most of the youngerly members of the company seemed to consider as a settler in the case, while Sam proceeded.

Classically Mad Usage:  I intend to start collusitating all the time, for collusitations seem to be my only hope of gaining a collusitative effect on the intelligent readership on this blog.

    I have taught my children to sing “watermelon” when they forget the lyrics to a song in children’s choir. This dandy tip has greatly increased their confidence before a crowd. My eldest son hardly bothers with any other words at all — he feels “watermelon” is perfectly sufficient for any song.

    So thank you for pointing out “collusitate”. I’m sure we will put it to good use.
