Flu-nundrum: "Feed a cold, starve a fever" or "Starve a cold, feed a fever"? (Pam Sweeney, Germantown)

Geta-rooms: Couples displaying excessive public affection. "Ugh, I just rode up the elevator with a pair of geta-rooms going at it the whole way." (Mark Eckenwiler, Washington)

Joy-vey: The special delight that some mothers get from worrying. (Chris Doyle)

Scat-mospheric: Describing the aroma of the bus station restroom. (Pam Sweeney)
