nigrine - a public statement in which a speaker reveals that they are a racist by initially claiming they're *not* a racist

"Now I'm not a racist, but..."
"Nigrine? Please...."

nigrine - the tiny tuft of blue and white fuzz on the mold that blooms upon neglected leftovers of an advanced age.

nigrine - a nagging, high-pitched, yellowish, creeping sensation that the worst is not yet over.

By now, horror movie-goers are fairly used to the nigrine that accompanies a faux ending, particularly if the story has been exciting or epic in length up until then. Even so, the dread that builds during this calm before the storm can become unbearable.

nigrine - Col. Amer.

The persistent feeling that one has left their negro behind after a trip to the northern states.

Miss Scarlet Neckham was so distracted by her whirlwind trip to New York city, that she only finally realized the source of her nigrine when her daddy asked where Sambo was upon her return to the plantation.

nigrine: A fondant dessert filled with cream and salt liquorice, considered a delicacy in the more Lutheran parts of eastern Minnesota. After Nigrine Thorvaldsson, a housewife ca. 1974 famous for her investing acuity, her ability in llama-charming, and her cast-iron tastebuds.

After you finish your lutefisk, if you've been good, there's a slice of Aunt Merle's nigrine for you. We have to finish it today before it dissolves the enamel off the casserole pan.

Leucipottomy: psy,

A variation of schizophrenia wherein the patient believes his/her feces are sentient and can converse with the patient.

Some historians suspect that M. Bales' notorious early morning mutterings in the bathroom were more likely the result of leucipottomy rather than "poetical musings" as claimed in Bale's mostly auto-biographical memoirs. This unproven suspicion is, however, generally accepted, and is based on personal accounts by friends and family that the poet never flushed after himself and that he often reffered to bowel movements as "dropping off the boys".

Leucipottomy - apostrophe abuse, esp. using apostrophes wrong in two ways within the same sentence.

Coffee's use of the apostrophe after the s in Bales when it should have been apostrophe-s went from pottomy to leucipottomy when he abused a second apostrophe by misplacing it within the name: "Bale's".

Leucipottomy To go to the mountain top of ones passion.

Mike and Zenyatta completed a faultless year and he felt the leucipottomy of a sure win in his future.

Leucipottomy - the act of removing a football from the path of the person trying to kick it

After the leucipottomy, Charlie Brown was left lying flat on his back wondering how he could have possibly fallen for it again
