New word definitions from the Washington Post

Funny play on words, my personal favourite is:

Arachnoleptic fit: (n.) The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

hi aussie, nice post your post on arachnopletic fit. I like nice words and preferently old and archaic ones. Misteriuosly Im speak spanish but i knows some nice words of the old slang from harlem, circa 1900.
the word is COPACETIC...and it means faboulous,great, fantastic... like faboulantastic.
the word was used in the black english, and desapears near 1920...I dont know the origin oof the word, maybe have to do with some drink of the time. Who knows, its copacetic.
