Dictionary Thread!
Here's how it works:

Someone makes up a word, and then you think of the definition of that word. Then, you think of a word using elements of the original, and then the next person thinks of a definition for that word, and then another word, ad nauseum.

To start things off:

Wargasm

6. Thank you for the welcome
I never though Saddam or Iraq was an imminent threat. Now it's proven I was right, and I had less information to go on than my president had.

I think that amounts to a scandal, thus the word, as I understand the rules of thi game to use a form of the original word, of Wargate.

Why aren't there there any serious questions being asked about why we went to this war in the first place? This is a scandal as far as I'm concerned. Wargate!
