      I invented a word: "Verious".

      And yes, I do intend this to be a somewhat serious but entirely goofy topic.

      Verious.
      ver·ious
      [vair-eeuhs]
      –adjective
      not serious; facetious. Often used as a humourous contradiction in a person's statement. "Twilight is awesome! ...I'm being verious."

      Origin:
      2010; very + -serious;

      —Related forms
      ver·ious·ly, adverb

      —Can be confused:  various.



      ----

      I am actually incorporating this into my regular speech now, as is Lloyd Wallace, a friend of mine and member of DV. Will you guys use it too? Questions pertaining usage and all other concerns are welcomed.

      I'd laugh if this accidentally got adopted by people online and eventually made its way into the English language, with people everywhere baffled as to its origins.

      Dramatism:

      This words means the act of being dramatic.

      I am full of dramatism.

      I actually use this word xD.

      Also, cheesalicious, meaning it's delicious, but it must have cheese in it .

      "This pizza is SO cheesalicious".

      I use this word too .
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Everybody start using "verious" constantly at your local school/work/place of residence and pass it off as a real word. Then when it's in the English dictionary you can take minor credit for its popularity.

      I once created a phrase and got my whole school to start using it. Never caught on elsewhere though.

      Yeah, StrangeDreamsGuy! Let's all get using it!

      That's cool, Loaf, I've never made a phrase that caught on, but one time I really tried to get people to say "Holy Bejebus!" which didn't catch on. I know there have been other words I've used and still use, I'll mention them if I remember them. But! Everyone use the term "verious" when you're being verious out int he world! I'm gonna add it to my Firefox dictionary right now.

      I get PO'd when people are like, "OMGEEE THIS IS MINE AND DERRICK'S 5 MONTH ANNIVERSARY ZOMG!!!!1111one"
      Thus, I invented the word "Lunaversary." It is a month celebration thing.
      Also, I will try to incorporate verious into my language.
      I don't usually think, therefore I mostly am not.

      I could see verious as being a real word.

      @slayer I feel like it's been in my vernacular for a while, even though it hasn't. It really does feel like a real word.

      @kookyinc I have that problem too, where I want to say that it's our x month anniversary, but it's not an anniversary because it's a month, and I'm not about to say monthaversary. I like lunaversary, thanks bud.
