Made-Up Words That Make You Cringe

Image credit: 

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Last week we discussed intentionally misspelled words that drive you crazy (KidzTyme, wyngz, etc.) Along those lines, what are your least favorite made-up or mashed-up words, like Xfinity or emotrics ("analytical measurement of emotions")?

2. For everyone who works or has worked in a job where gratuities are encouraged, what's the best (or weirdest) tip anyone ever left you?

3. Recommend one food you suspect most of us have never tried.

4. Our last question comes from the season three finale of The West Wing. Is there a crime, which if it wasn't illegal, you would do? Dr. Stanley Keyworth's answer was pretty good: "I'd park anywhere I want."
