Made up words in The Simpsons
Includes my favorites, “unpossible” and “tramapoline.” Also includes Dan's favorite, “jerkass.”
It is sad that I know this, but some of the words are listed incorrectly in this link.
They have any entry as "cromulent." The correct made up word is "promulent." As in, "Embiggens" is a perfectly promulent word.
Also, for the record, the one i use all the time is "jerkface." Bart taunts Jimbo Jones with, "Hey jerface, you have the face of a jerk."
I'm done being a nerd now ... er, for the next five minutes.
Seeing that it's wikipedia, you are encouraged to correct it. I'm serious.
They left out "Woozle Wuzzle".
Wait, what am I telling you guys for?
I guess I need to go add it myself.
Now I thought I was a big nerd, but it turns out that the fake word really is "cromulent" and other people have done a lot of research to prove it. Promulent just makes so much more sense to me because it sounds like prominent.
They don't have "jerkface" though, so perhaps I will make my contribution to nerdkind.
i love wikipedia. there. i said it.
I have disabled HTML in the comments on purpose because of evildoers. If you want to post a link, just paste like you did.
No, i never actually changed it. I reviewed my Simpsons Book, and they have a quote from that episode listed as "cromulent". There is also a really throrough explanation on the site having to do with that word being lifted from "Black Adder" - a British comedy. So i figured that i was outgeeked. It's funny that other people thought it was "promulent" though.
I did create the entry for "Jerkface". So i have made my mark.
