Wordplay - making new words (1 Viewer)

I wouldn't be surprised if someone has started such a thread already, but how about sharing new words and possible definitions that could be a logical extension of existing words - the more humorous the better.

I'll throw a couple of examples in from my own head to give the idea:

psychophant - someone who grovels to their therapist

humanitarian - someone who eats humans (on the basis that a vegetarian eats vegetables).

That's the sort of thing I'd like people to aim for, but don't worry if you can't match my brilliance :)
