I want to create a word. This is not hard for me. I am American. We do it all the time. But I want my word to catch like wild fire and burn until the end of time. Then, some day, someone will look back on this page and say "Hey! I just found the origin of the word ______!"

OK, call me dense. I didn't hear "procrastinatastic" speaking.

Procrastinatastic - a new modelling compound from Play-Doh that is always soft and pliable because it never hardens until tomorrow.

As far as I know, Play-Doh is Homer Simpson's favourite philosopher.

I thought it was a ploy of the Royal Mail to get us to write more letters.

When you already have _The Guardian_, who needs more letters?
