oholiapthoeramesis - A handy word to know, means nothing but is great for: arousing interest in conversation, confusing eavesdroppers, making children ask questions or feel like they have a lot to learn and you're the person to ask, making know-it-alls look stupid either by shutting-up or commenting on an obviously made up word, and certainly not last its flowgasmic quality. Its construction for flexibility in sentences is nearly unrivaled. It may be pronounced in a plethora of ways -- it has a ring which could be medical (in any field), environmental, spiritual, mechanical, scientific (in any field), and many others.

e.g., Oholiapthoeramesis is my way of life. Next week I'm going in early to my oholiapthoeramesis (she's really good, waited four years to see her) to have an oholiapthoeramesis performed. Seems I have an imbalance of the oholiapthoeramesis. Speaking of words like oholiapthoeramesis, last week on "Nature" they showed having discovered a new species of oholiapthoeramesis which has one of the largest oholiapthoeramesis within its phylum.

ohowu stink - A university located in Columbus, Ohio, found by traveling south until you smell it and west until you step in it. (ED. One of our older editors has a son-in-law who is a graduate of Ohio State University, and undoubtedly knows that Ohio State University is east of the University of Michigan (Lansing, Michigan), not west. Buckeyes feel the same way about Wolverines as Wolverines feel about Buckeyes. Judging from this submittal, Buckeyes could very well be smarter than Wolverines. Is it a good-natured rivalry? Not as far as I can tell. I've seen nothing to indicate that that's the case.)

e.g., Yeah, he went to Ohowu Stink and still can't wash my car very well.

oilbow - (n.) 1. The beautiful shifting colors on the oily surface of a street puddle; sadly, however, the word also applies to 2. the beautiful shifting colors of the slick of an oil spill that's befouled everything for miles, killed thousands of animals, occasioned an ecological disaster, and cost everyone hundreds of millions of dollars. (Sort of gives an ironic twist to the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow, doesn't it?)

e.g., 1. As my son loaded furniture into my van in the pouring rain, I became engrossed in the slowly turning oilbow at his feet. | 2. After the Gomex well disaster back in 2010, there were amazing oilbows for miles and miles ... it was horrifying.

oilitics - The politics of oil. I've tired of the beltway politicians -- years ago. Among several things I find particularly annoying is their oilitics. Will they ever take the steps necessary to making the United States energy independent -- or are they just going to continue to talk and never really do anything.

oily boid - Early bird. In the greater New York City area there used to be a dialect pronunciation by some people where the sound /ur/ as in fur was pronounced something like /oy/. Therefore, "boid" for bird, "oily" for early, and so forth. Foreign accents in the big city probably had something to do with this modified pronunciation.

e.g., They say that the oily boid is getting the woim. This means that you too by getting up oily can end up with a moufful of woims, fresh, moist,meaty.

oinkment - A serendipitous salve used by mavens of mirth to transform sows' ears into silk purses.

e.g., Bambino Spumante, a veritable vixen of vacuous verbiage and part-time pastry, cookie, and pie chef at the Fat Cat Cafe, had but one thing on her mind -- on second thought perhaps it was more like three -- which can be difficult to juggle if one's working in a hot kitchen where creations are apt to come apart, wilt, or even melt (definitely not something that should happen during any politically-correct happy holiday season), which is why she decided that she needed three goofball gizmos or goofing-off gifts for herself such as a "Big Chill Pastry Board" (to cool down the workplace of course), a fragrant jar of "OINKMENT"(guaranteed to deliver better results than a pig in a poke), and several superb bling-bling bottles of "Any Old Tequila Will Do," "Berry Merry Beer," and "Sourpuss Shiraz" (to dress up her kitschy den and homey watering hole designed to quench the thirst of glockenspiel go-getters, alpenhorn types, and flutophone enthusiasts who can't hold a note worth tooting about but tell super-sanitized jokes for the cocktail crowd who usually drop by for the piddling entertainment provided by a few potty professors of poetry, a crafty barstool origamist making boozy conversation pieces while others groove to the tunes of "Two Twittering Tenors," "Chicken Soup & The Dumplings," not to mention two internationally-popular DJs such as "Libation Nation" from Nannycatch Meadows in Northern England, and "Hot Sock" all the way from the famed "Sooke Potholes" on the outskirsts of a quaint capital city full of gregarious gnomes and gleaming gardens, better known as Victoria, British Columbia in a cold country affectionately called C-A-N-A-D-A!).
