Eruditz: A philosophy professor who can’t figure out how to work the copying machine.

Fearcical: Ludicrous yet vaguely alarming.

Epigramp: A maxim that brands the speaker as an old codger.

Educrate: To teach in one of the “modules” set up “temporarily” in the parking lot of an overcrowded school.

Elbrow: Extremely long underarm hair.

Fuhrenheit: The temperature in Hell.

Zencompass: Wherever you go, there you are.
