***Invent 5 sniglets. List them with their definitions***

Comedian Rich Hall defined a Sniglet as a word that doesn't appear in the dictionary but should.

A Sniglet is a word to describe something that the English language doesn't already have a word for.

Examples (created by Rich Hall in his book series Sniglets):

*flirr, a photograph that features the camera operator's finger in the corner.
*lerplexed, unable to find the correct spelling for a word in the dictionary because you don't know how to spell it.
*profanitype, the special symbols and stars used by cartoonists to replace swear words (points, asterisks, stars, and so on).
*pupkus, the moist residue left on a window after a dog presses its nose to it.
