The worthless word for the day is: grotendous

[portmanteau (coined by Neal Stephenson)]

neologism : grotesque, horrendous 

Hence, grotendously

"She has this image in her mind that he's going to be like the wrestling coach at the high school. That would be so grotendous. Anyway this [Mom's Truck Stop] is where she is supposed to meet him."
- Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash (1992)

"What's weird to me is how the collective output of all that great work by great people produces such lousy outcomes -- DRM-crippled OSes like Vista, stupid products like the Zune, grotendously complex apps like Office.."
- Cory Doctorow,

You can now say there are four words ending in 'endous'
