Made Up Words

hippocrit(n)

Derived from "hippo" meaning big fat creature, and "crit", which is an abbreviation of criticism, as in lit.crit.


Euronate (vb)

Paying money to use a lavatory in a country within the Euro zone (i.e. those that use Euro as their currency).

It was a difficult decision about which way to go with the "crit" bit. I opted for the safer option, rather than trying for something similar to the "lip my stockings" scene in "Lost In Translation".
