Corporate Neologizing

Few things drive me crazier than companies making up their own stupid buzzwords. Are they trying to come with catchy terms that they hope will provide free advertising as they theoretically worm their way into colloquial language? Regardless of intent, here is a short list of made-up words/phrases born out of ill-conceived advertising programs:

Fourth Meal
Threeconomics
Nougatocity (or any of Snickers’ terrible terms)
Comcastic
People Ready

You get the point. If you have any others you’ve seen/heard in any form of advertising, put it in the comments.

  1. How about any of the words that Comcast created by adding “-ing” to existing ones in their creepy new commercial?
