Amusing word play from the Washington Post’s neologism section | Denis Kilcommons, Huddersfield Examiner

Here are some amusing neologisms originally submitted by readers to the Washington Post. Neologism: a newly coined word. There's more where these came from at the link.
Flabbergasted (adj), appalled over how much weight you have gained.

Negligent (adj), describes a condition in which you absent-mindedly answer the door in your nightgown.
Lymph (v), to walk with a lisp.

Balderdash (n), a rapidly receding hairline.

Cashtration (n): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

Sarchasm (n): The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.

Glibido (v): All talk and no action.
Ignoranus (n). Which I don’t think needs an explanation.
