Here are some words I’ve remodeled recently and their use in a sentence.


celeveraging – sə-le-ver-a-jing – to use your fame to get ahead.shenanigasm – shə-na-ni-ga-zəm – when a seemingly frivolous event has an explosive finish.yarmikazi – yar-mə-ka-zi – half Jewish | half Japanese … with a vengeance.


We got in the club because my well-known friend cleveraged the yarmikazi at the door… I nearly had a shenanigasm.
