  • Pizzarito [pēt-sə-rē-tō] Make a pizza on a torilla, roll it up & you have a pizzarito.
  • Afraud [a-frȯd] African email scams
  • Christmasochist [kris-mə-sə-kist] Someone who takes on way too much at Christmas
  • Kwanzaaholic* [kwän-zə-hȯ-lik] Someone who’s a bit over the top with Kwanzaa
  • Vaccumulate [va-kyüm-ə-lāt] To accumulate vacuums
