Comedian Rich Hall gave us the "sniglet" -- defined as (remember?) "any word that doesn't appear in the dictionary, but should." Seeking to name the nameless things and behaviors we witness every day, Hall created a cottage industry that began with a segment on HBO's ahead-of-its-time show Not Necessarily The News and grew into a series of books and other gift items. Rich Hall did other stuff -- he was on the popular comedy show Fridays, and later a cast member of Saturday ight Live -- but Sniglets like "strumble," "bozone," "lactomangulation," "snorfing," "snackmosphere," and "profanitype" are his claim to fame.
