Gnomenclature is the science concerning the production of electricity. Inside of wires there are thousands of tiny gnomes awaiting command to begin high-fiving. When you flip a light switch on, it triggers a chain reaction between the gnomes. One high-fives the other and a domino affect begins, carrying exponentially increasing gnome high-five magic along a chain of microscopic gnomes, eventually leading to the bulb which is set to continuously run by a gnome performing interpretive dance inside the filament.
Cody - "I heard butt-town is all out of electricity, the papers are saying the gnomes are on strike"

Charlie - "What they need to do is bring some scientists in to negotiate the terms of gnomenclature with them"

gnomenclature (n.) - A whole collection of words, speeches, and soundbytes intended to support a business plan that mirrors the Underpants Gnomes' business plan.

"Yeah, the gnomenclature around that vaporware was amazing. He kept coming back to the 'Syngergistic Software Alliance Standard,' and I still have no idea if any other companies that are in the alliance besides them."
