A word which begins as a name for a specific member of a general class of items, but which ends up signifying the entire class.
Because Xerox was the first manufacturer of photocopy machines, many people now use "Xerox" as a synonym for photocopier, thus rendering "xerox" a supernomaly.

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
