Those are Perfectly Cromulent Words

Someone out there -- perhaps a hideously deformed shut-in, perhaps someone trapped beneath something heavy -- has taken the time to compile an authoritative list of the made-up words featured on "The Simpsons."

At the risk of succumbing to knowitallism, you should check it out. By my count, there are dickety-six, groin-grabbingly good words in this list that'll embiggen your vocabulary and impress Supernintendo Chalmers.

Better than cromulent, those are reducing me to tears in my office...it's been far too long since I watched any 'Simpsons.'

Random listing that pushed me over the edge...

""I just used [my washtub] that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking bird. We'd always have walking bird on Thanksgiving with all the trimmings: cranberries, injun eyes, yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we'd all watch football, which in those days was called 'baseball'..."

I was just thrilled to see Skittlebrau make it onto the list.
