A Sniglet is any word that doesn't appear in the dictionary, but should.

The Sniglets books were made in 1984 and 1985 by Rich Hall, a writer/actor for HBO's "Not Necessarily the News", "Fridays", and "The David Letterman Show".

The illustrations of the two books were made by Arnie Ten, an award-winning cartoonist living in Brooklyn.

Since the Sniglets's first airing on "Not Necessarily the News", thousands of viewers contributed to the books with their own Sniglets.
A few Sniglets:

"Eufirstics (yew fur' stiks) - n. Two people waiting on the phone for the other to hang up first."

"Nevitts (nev' itz) - n. The sandpaper-like deposits on a cat's tongue."

"Shocklet (shahk' lit) - n. The seldom-used third hole on an electrical outlet."

"Yotate (yoh' tayt) - v. To allow a yo-yo to unwind itself."
