POINT BLIMFARK: that little white dot that's left in the center of older televisions. It hangs around for about 10 minutes after the TV's turned off.

EXPRESSHOLE: the guy (or gal) who tries to sneak 12 items into the "10 Items or Less" line at the grocery store. Often follows this act by writing a check for his/her purchase.

PETROOL: the last, lingering drops to pour out of a bottle of motor oil.

PETRINKLE: jiggling, wiggling, and/or smacking the nozzle of the gasoline pump to get the very last drop of gasoline to end up in your tank, and not on the pavement at the filling station.

A few words that sound made-up, but aren't:

AGLET: those little plastic ends on shoelaces.

FILTRUM: the little indentation right above the center of your upper lip.

UVULA (pronounced "YOO-view-la"): the pink thingy hanging at the back of your throat. It sure does sound alot worse!!

LACHANOPHOBIA: the fear (I am NOT making this up) of vegetables.
