Spizerinctum

So last night...my Sooners had a little bit of a dry spell...my mom called and said..."Brian, those boys need a shot of spizerinctum." You ask, "what is this spizerinctum?" I asked myself. My mom said she heard it from my Grandpa Bill (Real great man of God).

So mom...I did a little research and WALA!!! I found some definitions of spizerinctum on the web & I found where you can actually buy SPIZ - A Balanced Liquid Food SourceFor Athletes, Dieting and Optimum Nutrition. I found it here...

Here are some main exerts...

Spizerinctum - n. energy, vigor, or vitality. Also spizerinktum, spizzerinktum, spizzerinctum, spizarinctum, pizzeringtum, spizzer inktum, etc.

A Few Citations of the word spizerinctum...
  • Sen. Alexander Wiley (R) Wis.] said spizerinctum was a word coined by an old banker in his town of Chippewa Falls, Wis., to describe someone full of pep and vitality.
  • Pioneer Press (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.) (Oct. 17) “In the realm of the coined”: Spizerinctum is invisible—an essence or energy of sorts. When beer has lost its foam, soda has lost its fizz or a balloon deflates, it has lost its spizerinctum. I suppose you would say that throughout the wedding preparations and busy weekend, I was overflowing with spizerinctum, but as things are winding down now, I think it has flown the coop for a while.

So Happy New Year and may you get a shot of spizerinctum!
