March 1, 2013 Urban Word of the Day
When the Pope abdicates the the Chair (cathedra) of Peter before his natural death, the Emeritus Pope is said to be on permanent Vatication.
Vatication is like the ultimate staycation, since it is a vacation in the Vatican taken on a permanent basis by Emeritus Pope.
Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI starts his permanent Vatication on February 28, 2013, the day he abdicates the pontifical throne, doffs his signature red Prada loafers, and his papal ring is destroyed.

When elected office is up for bid, up for being bought by the highest bidder, an elauction is under way.
Elauction indicates the primary role of money (and the principal bearers of money known as billionaires) in supposedly democratic elections.
The term, elauction, represents how the oligarchy, known these days as billionaires (or Billionaire Overlords) is able to buy elections.
When $100 million is spent to prop up a Governor who has been subjected to a recall, while a paltry $4 million is spent by the challenger, we are certainly witnessing an elauction.
When each candidate is a mere face, a mere facade for billionaire backers, an elauction is under way.
Who will win the elauction? The highest bidder, or the highest so-called 'contributor' will of course buy the elauction.

A quipportunity is the fleeting moment when a clever response is both timely, and funny.
Etymology: The word is an amalgam of 'quip' and 'opportunity' capitalizing on 1) the shared 'p' and 2) the fact that the 'portunity' portion of the word opportunity carries all of the meaning even without the displaced prefix.
I recently had a missed quipportunity when I told my sister that we saw the 2012 "Spider-Man" movie, and she asked how it was. I said it was "awesome," but the missed quipportunity was to reply, "Amazing" (since the name of the movie is "The Amazing Spider-Man").

|7.||Whole Wide Facebook|
A 21st Century designation indicating massive magnitude. Whereas in the past one might utter the phrase 'whole wide world,' such phrasing now seems quaint, and has been usurped by its replacement, 'whole wide facebook.'

You'll never find anyone else in the whole wide facebook as awesome as I am.
