Winner: Neologify Your Consumerisms

Last week we held a contest, in parallel with Valleywag, for the best consumer neologism. Here are the results.

Our grand winner is Mike Focosi with Oprahsuaded: To persuade someone, most likely a woman, into believing, buying, eating, reading or doing something that Oprah says is good. “You bought the latest Oprah’s Book Club book? You are so oprahsuaded.”

Mike wins The Consumerist Science Award certificate, previously only given to the Halliburton’s board of directors.

Congrats! One thing Mike did to secure his win over Jihadvertising was blog about his entry. Then his blogging friends picked up on it and encouraged others to vote.

All’s fair in love and blogging.
