Well, Happy, that Game of Uxbridge Dictionary does overlap with the "Neo-Definitions" thing, but it includes neologisms (many not used in common parlance) as well.

I do like these especially, though:

Contempt - Persuade an ex-prisoner to do one more job

Hypnotherapy = condition of inability to relieve pelvic joint pain via PT or OT

Mushroom - indoor arena for training dog sled teams

Finance - splendid insects

Yankee Clipper - Brooklyn rabbi

Indicate - adj. - smitten with Ms. Winslett

locomotive - basis for insanity defense at trial

And, from Mousethief:

destitute -- that is, in fact, the farting sound*

*That one took me a few seconds, but it cracked me up.
