A convenient coinage to give lyricists something with which to rhyme "canoodle"?

Dear FB: I remember a little quip in Readers Digest long ago: "This may be the machine age, but love is still made
by hand."

You wouldn't want it mass produced, would you?

Since this thread has had not a post in awhile, I will post
one I received earlier today from another:


EU DIRECTIVE 456179

In order to meet the conditions for joining the Single European
Currency, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain
and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase
"spending a penny" is not to be used after 31 December 2009.
From that date on the correct term will be 'euronating'.

Somewhat irreverant, and sure to offend some, but clever
nonetheless.
