Condi’s a Verb

Did you know that Condoleezza Rice has made a contribution to Israel?

As Tim McGirk of Time writes:

I feel sorry for Condoleezza Rice. That’s a sad thing to have to say about the secretary of state for a superpower, but let’s face the facts: she’s made 22 trips to Israel during the Bush Administration’s eight years, and she has little to show for it. Israeli TV announcers coined her name as a verb, meaning to go endlessly around in circles, accomplishing nothing.

That verb would be lecondel, derived from her first name.

Which got me thinking about other possible verbs. I’ll start it off:

leobam – to sound good while saying nothing

Now over to you. Hint: the infinitive verb always starts with “le.”
