Here's a couple good ones, since I've been slackin'

1. an intake of food or drink with a noisy sucking sound.

\lam-POON\, noun, verb:
1. a composition that imitates or misrepresents someone's style, usually in a humorous way
2. a light, good-humored satire

1. ridicule with satire

by 1645, from French lampon, of unknown origin, said by French etymologists to be from lampons "let us drink," popular refrain for scurrilous 17th century songs, from lamper "to drink, guzzle," a nasalized form of laper "to lap." The verb is first attested by 1657.

This was actually the word of the day at! Crazy!

1. the protuberance on the breast or udder in female mammals, except the monotremes, through which the milk ducts discharge; nipple or mammilla.

Obligatory Fine Print II

Slang or "made-up" words ARE allowed, though I can't promise that they'll make it into the final piece because I reserve the right to narrow down the list if need be.

Relatively well-known slang words will most likely make the cut. If I have to Urban Dictionary it to find out what it means, it most likely won't.

AwkWORD of the day!
