Okay...This is the first topic i've ever posted so please be kind!

I have been watching the commentaries on futurama, and i have noted that several times they reference words they have invented for the show... I did a search and i couldn't find a thread on this topic so i was curious!

i wanted to know what everyone's favorite new word is, or what words have you incorporated into your everyday vocabulary?
I know i use "kajigger" from I roommate all the time...
weee!!...

According to some, that's the correct way to pronounce it.  That alternate pronunciation is "spelled" out (visualized) here: http://www.merriam-webster.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=robot&x=20&y=12  but they don't have that particular audible pronunciation.

I like the Amyisms (I find myself using them on occasion out of habit), and of course Hattie's words, like "kajigger". (sp?)

Technically, that's Star Trek.   wink

I love it when they add "Space" to the front of something... Space Pope, Space Pirates, Space Potatoes... (Or were those hover potatoes?) Maybe not really a made up word, but still gets a chuckle out of me.   big grin

I just started saying the word 'nastification'  Sounds like an Amy-ism but I can't remember.  Can someone confirm/deny this?  It's driving me nuts cause I don't know where I've heard it. (Or maybe I've just watched to much Futurama and have started making up my own Amy-isms smile)
Back on topic, I love any of Amy's sayings, "Smeesh", "Splugh" etc..

That would be the Why of Fry!   big grin

Nibblonian 1: "It's a genetic abnormality which resulted when you went back in time and performed certain actions which made you your own grandfather."
Fry: "I did do the nasty in the pasty!"
Nibblonian 2: "Verily. And that past nastification is what shields you from the brains. You are the last hope of the universe."
Fry: "So, I really am important? How I feel when I'm drunk is correct?"
Nibblonian 1: "Yes. Except the Dave Matthews Band doesn't rock."

I don't think the writers of Futurama made up "kajigger."  As for "robut," I recall seeing a Twilight Zone episode where everybody pronounced it that way.

"Manocentric manocracy."  It's funny when I use it, because I'm a white straight male from the United States.  Yet I'm still being oppressed!

Buggalo.

And on the subject of the pronuciation of robot.
Check out any old episode of Lost in Space.
Professor Robinson always says ro-but
while Major West always says ro-bot.
We've been making fun and pointing out the two versions for years. Even before Futurama.

You forgot about the Space Cows and the grave robbing Space Mushrooms.

And 'nerdlinger' is also some kind of new word.

Some of the Proffesers exclamations are pretty good as well, such as "Poodelspit" or just some of his word combinations such as "Bull Pies"!

Nerdlinger was a character in a movie Homer watched in the Simpsons episode "Homer Goes to College."  I'm not sure if it predates that.

Does "aroo?" count as a made up word?  I know presidents make up new words all the time:

"Normalcy," Warren G. Harding
"Is, definition 2," William Jefferson Clinton
"Strategical," George Walker Bush
"Aroo," Richard Milhous Nixon's Head

Orale' is a Spanish slang term that's used as a toast or greeting (not sure what the exact translation is).  Beck grew up in a predominantly Mexican neighborhood, and heard it a lot.  It was misspelled on his album as "Odelay".
