    barkalotacism

    A tendency of certain deciduous trees to grow excessively thick bark, especially on high branches.

    This word is often misunderstood to pertain to dogs who bark too much, but that usage is considered substandard and is frowned upon by 86% of the usage panel.

    Colormorphism

    Colormorphism is when one color changes into another, a good example of this are the colors in the Alexandrite gem stone. It changes from green to red and also blue and sometimes purple. A true alexandrite is more expensive than a perfect diamond of the same karrot weight.

    willhartom

    now this one was difficult. i recognized it for a tolkienism but could not place it. i had to consult an expert. i do want to credit her--my learned but shell shocked friend, tennyson wampler, who spent nine years in a hippie commune in missouri. there was only one book in that commune: a dog eared copy of tolkien's trilogy. for nine years--between acid trips and cultivating medicinal wild hemp--tennyson had nothing to read but the trilogy. (and a stack of black and white national geographics swiped from her gynecologist's waiting room.) so thanks to t. wampler here is the correct definition:
    wilhartom: a non-elvish wand made of the bone of a buck and a willow braid. it belonged to tom bombadill. it was only through this wand that tom held sway over the beautiful goldberry, his reluctant wife. man gristle one scholar calls it.

    morphogamblitosis

    Oh yeah... I was hoping for this one! This is one DANGEROUS disease. Highly contagious in casinos. Please wash your hands after using every slot machine or the following will happen to you.

    First you become addicted to the slot machines, when they don't pan out, you switch to video poker or keno. Soon none of the machines, video poker or keno is enough so you hit the blackjack, poker and other card tables. That is when you start becoming addicted to the booze, and hookers. After that it morphs into cocaine, heroin and eventually Elmers school glue. You are now suffering from Morphogambiltosis.

    A rolling ball of addiction attributed to not washing your hands after using slot machines.

    This is a very recent word coined by one of the remotest tribes in the world - the Purdu tribe of Borneo.

    In 1970 - after they were converted to Red Sox fans by passing missionaries - one of them left behind the albumn "Janis Joplin - The Greatest Hits"

    Unfortunately the Purdu cant read English and Joplin has since become known as Jeplin. Once a year they have a festival whereby they dance all night to the albumn and call it the "jeplination"

    carpsicle

    This treat is very popular among children in Scandinavia. A carpsicle is basically a frozen carp-on-a-stick that is licked. It comes in two flavors, smoked and regular and every wrapper includes a cautionary warning about choking on small fish bones.

    Yes. Many relationships have ended because the man (usually) torgled his woman to the point she actually felt pain.

    The torgler torgles his/her mate (the torglee) - a bit like overenthusiastic tickling but with stiff fingers - to the point the torglee says stop it is hurting me. This is the torgling point.

    So if you want to give your mate a torgle then try to avoid a stiff finger.
