The Washington Post can do it, why not the Naples Press Club? Hereby announcing a contest for clever "Neologisms". Prize to be announced – and it may be an actual entry, so be very careful.
Neologism according to the dictionary has two meanings:
1) a new word, meaning, usage, or phrase
2) in Psychiatry – a new word often consisting of a combination of other words, that is understood only by the speaker, occurring most often in the speech of schizophrenics.
Take your pick, but chime in with your own original neologisms. We will publish them in upcoming issues and vote on the winner.
Some examples from past winners:
Coffee (n.): a person who is coughed upon
