basperschint
-German term for toys left in temples to distract the gods.

"Now, Thor's basperschint can be as simple as a squeaky hammer. Toss one behind the altar and you can pretty much depend on being unobserved for at least 12 hours. Loki, though, is pretty crafty. You need to basperschint your basperschint. Like a nesting doll with a firecracker inside it. Or a live grenade."

Mekomflaggen = one of those silicon-nipple-topped BPA-free-plastic water bottles that so many twenty-somethings perpetually carry around to get their "required" 18 quarts of daily water.

"It was really amazing. The other day at work I was in the main conference room for an all-hands meeting and every assistant project manager came in clutching their mekomflaggen like some sort of alternative security blanket."

Stinglebiz - a business that hides behind a partnership with another business or brand so they can pretend they're not the ones price gouging.

Amazon is the best example of a stinglebiz. They just blame it on the marketplace gougers while lining their pockets.

plefferal
In cultures where two different gods control lightning and thunder, it's the time between the lightning strike and the accompanying thunder. Used as a metaphor for communication, coordination, and jostling your brother's elbow so he stops flirting with Rain and gets on with the job.

In cultures were one god is responsible for both thunder and lightning, the same word alludes to craftmanship, professionalism, and organizing your work bench before you start a project so your hand isn't hovering over sleet, hail, and ball lighnting while you look for the damned thunder.

Anthropologists have adopted the term to refer to the time between submitting a paper and realizing you never attached the appendices.

"Ten years on my paper about the religious significance of pearl necklaces in the Jewish Diaspora, and my plefferal lasted two whole weeks! FMR."

Pooperknobber

Pooperknobber is actually the name of one of my childhood friend's little chihuahua. One winter we went out to a pond that was frozen, and for some reason my friend tossed Pooperknobber out onto the ice. His body just went rigid and he stood stock still as his body skated and spun across the ice. It was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen. Poor Pooperknobber.

I know that's not exactly how this game goes, but I wanted to get the nonsense ball rolling again.

swetationism
From 'Swetat,' the Esperanto term for the effort to control sexual diversity through mockery, swetationism is an official stance held by a government agency, congregation, or school administration to curb one or more offensive 'perversions' through public humiliation.
Of note, the existenace of swetationism is usually taken as a straight line by comedians for the purpose of mocking the mockery (see SNL, Monty Python, and Tucker Carlson (inadvertently).).

That sound windows 11 makes when a plug-and-play device is connected

doongadoom

A political candidate that looks decent at first glance but once they're on the ticket, they remove their mask and go full blabbermouth moron Republiclown.

Our current political landscape is littered with dongadooms such as Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene, but in the olden days, dongadooms were a bit more scarce. We all remember classic dongadoom Sarah Palin, a game changer in right wing politics, spawning a new generation of dongadooms like evangelicals spawn future bigots, all ready and willing to bring doom down upon our heads.
