Kudos to Glitterbag:

Words.
So many of them that sound so cool. And mixed together, they could make a tasty meal.
So, I'll start with a word. Just add one to make a complementary dish. Then someone else can bring another.
Ad nauseum.
Oh, you can add extra words to make a sentence,
just like condiments.

So here's my dish:
Ontology.

Enjoy!

Why do so many people, when using that Latin phrase in order to sound knowledgeable, fail utterly because they misspell 'nauseam'?

First of I would like to thank Neologist for turning my offhand remark into something fun. I hope everyone finds some enjoyment or a few chuckles when or if you join in.

I have a favor to ask, could those of us who can occasionally be jerks, try to avoid insulting the participants. We know who we are, let's just have some fun.

@glitterbag,
No kidding?

Ben Stein was a speechifier for Nixon at some point around that timeframe, I recall.
