Vote for deletion. This is not in keeping with the rules of the xkcd wiki. I don't know what those rules are, but I asked flyingferret if we should delete this page, and he said yes. 76.170.73.116 21:01, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

This is what's wrong with the XKCD wiki. People come here and donate a lot of time and effort to improving the wiki, and then deletionists like you come along with your misconscrewed rules and regulations to destroy everybody's work. It's absatively ridiculous. --Skrapion 05:32, 21 May 2010 (UTC)


I humbly offer "Emcromulate" as an example of a Malamanteau, being a portmanteau of Embiggen and Cromulent, the former being a malapropism and the latter being a neologism. Both are neologisms credited to Lisa Simpson by the phrase " 'Embiggen' is a perfectly cromulent word".
