    This is not in the dictionaries yet but can be found Google.
    Ineptocarcy

    (Noun) a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. Adjective would be Ineptocratic.

    @Martin Alonzo, Ok friend, you started this thread, so let's have some more. Or you could tell us just where to find these new words, so we can play too. I'm sure your mom taught you to share. Please, with whipped cream on top.

    Well that word was not invented by me but was on a T shirt. It soon caught on and now viral

    Seriously, these words maybe on google but if I put them in my MS word it would be telling me that such a word doesn't exist. Not that this would be too unusual because it does that when it comes to much of the internet lingo of today. My MS Word doesn't like the word twitter, or facebook and don't ask how it feels about google. Yes, my MS Word isn't compatible with one of the biggest services online, I guess those who created the program need to update it to include Internet terms, just a thought.

    It's enough to make English language purists shake in their shooties, or perhaps even to lol.

    But Scrabble is about to include text-speak and street slang in a raft of new words for its ever expanding dictionary.

    Why? Because it has to stay dench, obvs. And anyone who cries blech (12 points) can just shut their cakehole (17 points).

    I play Scrabble regularly and we stick to the simple rule of only allowing words in Chambers Dictionary. I'm not sure Scrabble really needs to be down with da kidz.

    On spellcheckers: these are universally rubbish. I use Open Office for writing and seem to spend half my time shouting at the screen because the spellchecker has failed to recognise a valid word. Yesterday, it failed to understand the word 'withering'. What???

    Wow! All these words sound really interesting. This is why I love the Internet - I can learn things in seconds, things I wouldn't have learned otherwise!

    Seems like there are a lot of nonebrities on TV these days...

    The only new words that I can think of are the English words invented in our country. Presidentiable means someone who has the potential to become a presidential candidate. That goes the same meaning with Senatoriable. I really didn't know that those words were not in the English dictionary until I heard in the news recently that they were added in the OED (Oxford English Dictionary). You will read those words now because even if the national elections is still one year away, the election fever is already starting to heat up.

    These sound like the words Presidential or Senatorial, which I think mean the same as the "new" versions. Maybe electable would be better.;)

    You are right, but presidential is more of an adjective since our usage of that word is usually the term presidential material or presidential election. With presidentiable, it is a noun that means someone who is capable of being a presidential candidate. Filipinos are good in coining words and also in giving words another meaning. Would you believe that the more popular meaning of salvage is not to save but to eliminate as in a rubout? So when someone tells you that you can easily be salvaged, that's not a good joke.

    I have been discussing with a friend of mine on how inept are many politicians out there, so no strange at all that they can be the inspiration for the new generation of ineptocratic people who have in them a model to follow. No doubt that when it comes to politics, we are surrounded by ineptocarcy.

    I love this, a term probably crafted to honor Kim Kardashian and company :D

    I think that 'nonebrity' surfaced as a result of the proliferation of so-called reality shows on television. Quite how they are realistic, I know not. It always struck me that if I wanted to watch a bunch of dysfunctional buffoons making a fool of themselves, all I needed to do was go into the office every day. Either that or we install a mirror in the living room.

    I have no idea about the real origin, but I thought Kim Kardashian was why it was created.
