Humorist and wordsmith extraordinaire Matthew Goldberg shares over two hundred and fifty fake words for others to learn and use as they attempt to heal themselves from carpool tunnel syndrome, battle strange hankerings for good old-fashioned Talibanjo music, and watch helplessly as their dogs conk out from barkolepsy.Goldberg was unintentionally born into a family that has always used words creatively and he relies on his internal artistic fire to share both one-word and multiple-word entries, called wordapods. While introducing such words and phrases as boredello, anthropomurphic, and hit-and-shun accident, Goldberg includes definitions, sample sentences, ways to master the word, and trivia that will both entertain and inform. Goldberg interviews dozens of fascinating characters that help define the words including Vegestarian Mars Greenman, Pastafari Scholar Tosh Kingsmon, and baseball fan and original boob bird Clara Heatley.Meant for the creative word enthusiast, the budding semantician, and for anyone with a good sense of humor, Wordapodia: Volume One provides a unique compilation of new words, fun facts, and observations. So, hold your breath, grab on to your caribooster seat, and get ready for a wild ride through one man's imagination.
