A Craptacular Giveaway

So apparently there’s this film coming out tomorrow about some family called “The Sampsons” or “The Simpsons” or something. You probably haven’t heard much about it, as the company producing the film (they’re named after an animal, it’s like WOLF or FOX) doesn’t have very much money for promotion, certainly not enough to renovate entire convenience stores across the United States to look like convenience stores in the film or to renovate a downtown bar in Toronto to look like the bar in the film.
Apparently, though, the Simpsons gang are big fans of Torontoist, and courtesy of Cornerstone Promotion, we have some free stuff to give away to our readers. How nice of them!
The Grand Prize is, in ascending order of greatness: a movie poster autographed by the film’s composer, Hans Zimmer; a limited edition doughnut soundtrack (pictured); and…wait for it…a magnet. Bananas! The first runner-up will receive the regular edition of the soundtrack, a movie poster, and magnet, while the second runner-up will get a poster and a magnet.
In spite of its relative unknown-ness, The Simpsons has nonetheless created some gem words and introduced them into society at large (like “meh,” “craptacular,” and the like), so your task to win the prize is simple: invent a new word, and tell us its definition in the comments. (You must, then, be a registered user of Torontoist to win.)
The contest ends at midnight on Friday, August 3, and we’ll pick our favourites over the weekend. Good luck!
The contest is now closed. Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone for entering!
