Sorry, but a Mazel Tov cocktail is what celebrants imbibe after the champagne at a Jewish celebration.

Wealthfare is what is used to give money to the people who don't need it, at the expense of the 99%, usually part of a wonderful tax cut.

A friend of mine who did not grow up in the States had these two good ones:

Weaseling and dieseling [wheeling and dealing]

Burned to withereens [akin to smashed to smithereens]

Another friend who did grow up here had these 2:

Cuddly-sac [cul-de-sac]

Mazel tov cocktail [Molotov cocktail]

I know these are malapropisms but they were new to me, and I liked them so I say them now. Well, not the cocktail one, any more. Actually, withereens would count as a neologism.

As a side note, I often watch MSNBC at 10PM EST, and I can't remember Lawrence O'Donnell ever saying "President Trump"... he may refer to him 30 times in an hour, but always as just "Donald Trump"

I'd bet it's a calculated snub of the 'resident's legitimacy.

I refreshed this thread because it is funny.

Also because I read this word today: Wasband. A male ex-spouse with whom you are still on friendly term. Rhymes with husband. Created by divorced folks who think Ex is too distant a term.

The word Nibling [gender-free term for niece or nephew], which I made up in my childhood, is worming its way into the vernacular, and was apparently coined decades earlier but I hadn't heard it at the time I made it up.

Any new words you like?

Just a note on the I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue reference.

   It's a BBC radio prog, "the antidote to panel games". the most consistently funny prog on BBC.

   They have a round called "Uxbridge Englsh Dictionary",where the panellists come up with new definitions of English words. Not Oxbridge(Oxford/Cambridge mix, but Uxbridge,a rather downmarket suburb.

e.g. 'Shellfish' - a bit like a shelf
       'Creche' - a car accident in Purley (a poshish place south of London.
       'soaring' - too much fruit in the diet.
