New York -- President George W. Bush provided a wealth of new material for the 2008 edition of Webster's Dictionary, being given credit for 17 of the Dictionaries 38 new word additions. "We don't take this sort of thing lightly, this President has made a significant addition to the English language, and good on him!" extolled Danny Webster VII, acting editor of the Dictionary.
The White House confirmed this latest honor for the commander in chief stating, "There is much more to this President than just politics. The president is very pleased with this latest distinction. In fact he is feeling quite covely today." Covely is one of the words being added.
covely -- adj. 1. strong feeling of self satisfaction, as first used by George W. Bush (American President)...possibly an amalgamation of the words cool and lovely.
Another of the words added is funderful, which was actually first used by the President on Valentines day when he was reciting a poem he had written for his wife. "Roses are Red, Violets are funderful, I think Laura is absolutely wonderful." Funderful means 'pleasant to be with, often fun.'
Some of the other words added included, scube (a cube made of ice), sloke (one who goes excessively slow aka..slow poke), patriomatic (a pragmatic patriot), Amerexan (American from texas) and Frencherish, which was used to describe Europeans in general as being French-like.
The entire list of new words can be found at the Webster Dictionary website. The President is rumored to have said, "Well, I am certainly a patriomatic Amerexan today. Hell, I don't even realize when I am making up new words. I can do it in my sleep."
Dr. Bob Hauger, a New York psychiatrist stated that the amount of neologisms attributable to the President is symptomatic of schizophrenia and wondered out loud if the President suffers from some form of psychosis.
Webster's Dictionary is honoring the President by adding an additional meaning for the word 'Bush'. It means to inadvertently make up a new word when your vocabulary fails you, as in, "The Preacher bushed halfway through his sermon."
