artr Spituation: /spi ch oōˈā sh ən/ As a baseball player Charlie was used to chewing gum and letting the spit fly. If he was nervous, he could be a regular phlegm fountain. When his team won the World Series a visit to the White House was in order and sure enough Charlie had the jitters. As he went to shake the President's hand habits took over. The Secret Service radios crackled to life. "We have a spituation in the Oval Office!" Before he could muster another loogie, Charlie found himself on the floor. Who knew that Secret Service agents carried tasers? Etymology: spit (saliva, typically that which has been ejected from a person's mouth) + situation (a set of circumstances in which one finds oneself) Created by: artr.

karenanne Rasputum: /rah SPYU tum/ I don't really enjoy eating with my brother-in-law or sitting anywhere with him for any length of time, because he chews tobacco and seems to think it's OK to spit anywhere, at any time. I'm always worried that he's going to accidentally/on purpose spit into my drinking cup at dinner. Worst of all, Rasputum, as I like to call him, somehow got my sister to pick up his nasty habits, too. Etymology: sputum + Rasputin (a person who is felt to have an insidious and corrupting influence) Created by: karenanne.

Spifoon: /spi FOON/ A lot of young women at my university don’t like anyone to know that they smoke. These women sit on the toilet and smoke their cigarettes so no one can see them. Part of the spifoon ritual in their cubicle spittoons is to spit on the floor while they smoke. It is really gross and disgusting. Etymology: BUFFOON: a gross and usually ill-educated or stupid person SPIT: Created by: kateinkorea.

Excellent word choice! Oh and about those washroom puffers, they're in denial; others will know they smoke even if they try to spit off the stench! - splendiction, 2009-03-12: 22:15:00

Terrific sentence and word. Agree with you and splendiction ... no matter how much they spit, kissing them would still be like cleaning out an ashtray! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-13: 19:18:00
