Here's a thread for suggesting new words that we can use for phenomena which presently do not have any words to denote them, but for which it might be useful to have words to denote them. I'll kick things off with a couple of examples.

Phenomenon #1: That situation where someone disingenuously co-opts the language of their opponents for their own advantage, despite the fact that they obviously have no intention of abiding by the literal sentiments behind that language.

Suggested word: to figshit

Example:

Nazi: "Your refusal to allow me to speak publicly on the Jewish question is a suppression of my rights, and an affront to my fundamental dignity as a human being."
Person: "Wow, figshitting much bro? Get the gently caress outta here..."


Phenomenon #2: That situation where someone makes a conspicuous, unprompted denial and it reminds you of that tweet which goes "My 'Not involved in human trafficking' T-shirt has people asking a lot of questions already answered by my shirt".

Suggested word: to t-shirt oneself

Example:

Politician: "I have never paid for prostitutes from the state budget".
Person: "Wow, t-shirting yourself much bro? Get the gently caress outta here..."

I think if we work together we could really get these expressions off the ground. Cheers.

Because it never leaves its bedroom, no one has ever seen this poster's real face.

my friend and I wanted a quick way to communicate when, somebody says something and the other person doesn't hear, so they ask the person that spoke to repeat themselves, or like if they didn't get a reference or didn't experience a fleeting moment the same way just now, and they're like "huh?", but either the moment has passed or it doesn't matter like at all because you were just saying something stupid and pointless out loud

like the mitch hedberg bit

quote:

I’m a mumbler. If I’m walking with a friend and I say something, he won’t hear me, he’ll say “What?”
So I’ll say it again, but once again, he doesn’t hear me, so he says “What?!
But really it’s just some insignificant poo poo that I’m saying.
But now I’m yelling “THAT TREE IS FAR AWAY!
because if you just say "never mind", it kinda seems like you're giving up on being heard, which can mean all kinds of things, and you have to do that "no really it's fine" dance

so we wanted a word that means, that situation I described above, we're in that right now
so the other person can just be like "cool"

we landed on "zop"
I think because it kinda sounds like stop and it isn't already a word
zop means "never mind, but also, never mind that I'm saying never mind right now, genuinely everything's cool"

it comes up more often than you'd think and helps keep things chill. I highly recommend zop

Instead of “zop”, my wife and I say “stupid poo poo” whenever the other asks us to repeat something or just asks a question and it’s not worth even mentioning/answering. Like, right now, my wife just asked me what I was typing about and without looking up just said “stupid poo poo” and she nodded and went back to her book. It’s pretty nice, tbh

For the longest time people would reference Shakespeare "doth protest too much" for this concept, but yeah that's finally become archaic I think.

There's no common word in English for the crusty poo poo when you get "sleep in your eyes," something I didn't even realize until a Mexican buddy of mine tried asking me about it.

Technically the term for it is "rheum," btw.

I believe they list schadenfreude in English dictionaries, I think we can consider that one officially stolen, like so many other words the English language has stolen.

When one has access to vastly bigger amounts of resources and opportunities to be set for a life rich with wealth, projects, accomplishment and being appreciated by a large and diverse international community that could provide you with even more opportunities and avenues to success... but you blow it all on doing nothing substantial, abusing people and substances and ultimately crash into a very low wall because you never had what it takes to fly higher off the floor.

You've lowtaxed it, bud.

When snitches get in a hosed up situation they seemingly can’t get out of and they co-opt a merchant who suddenly and seemingly has a product for sale (that they should rightfully have no knowledge of or even by coincidence have proximity to a victim that the product will exonerate) that will let them violate the stumbling block that is keeping them from avoiding the bogies that are plaguing them and they violate the sanctity of the innocent to get a position that provides them self preservation as they usher in the merchants cavalcade of indiscriminate fornicators to violate the youth.

How about a word for when a product you enjoy gets changed or disappears entirely?

Planters cheez balls? Gone!
Chef Boyardee Chilli Mac? Recipe change, here's bigger, worse tasting macaroni! Oh not good enough? Gone then, gently caress you!
Keebler/TGI Friday's potato skin chips? Hahaha we're not stocking those anymore idiot, but you MIGHT get lucky at a dollar store.
JIF Almond Butter? Try Amazon, dickhead, it's only 19 bucks for a 6 oz jar there! Hahaha you deserve to pay stupidly high prices because you can't eat peanuts, loser!
Cinnamon Crest? ROOOOOFFFFFLMAO

We indeed need such a word. How about a pair of Mustang jeans that look great on you so you come buy same exact model and size, except Mustang stealth-changed something and new jeans look like crap.

That makes it sound positive though and it's really not. There's no real clarity either. It's a lack of focus like "uuugh, what do I do now? What was a doing before edging for the last... hour and three quarters??? What am I doing with my life?"

If anything that's the norm and we could more use a word for when you feel so good after cumming that the porn your watching doesn't even disgust you "oh look she's having fun!"

We also need a word for that mixture of satisfaction, novelty and boring inevitably you feel at "of course the Germans have a word for that".
