Fustigate".
from the Simpsons episode where Homer goes into the ring With Drederic Tatum.
Moe sez, "He cant go in there! He'll fustigate him!" the formal legal term is to 'be severely criticized". Frinstance, I was recently fustigated for an ill-advised post by the Mods.
the literal term is "to be beaten with a fustus", the Roman term for a cudgel or short heavy club.

example- Remember Rodney King? what the cops did with their "batons"(sanitized PC language, a baton is what a cheerleader handles. bullshit, its a plastic club.) was certainly a severe criticism, and everyone knew it.

A most cromulent term.

acromulent a new neologism that is not cromulent. This is correct suffix use.

Cromulator- a person or thing that generates good new coinage. this is an example of self-rep the term defines itself in a recursive way.
Ex: I am a relentless cromulator.
for instance:
Thimblehat: a person so deficient in brain volume a thimble would serve as a hat.

Not to be confused with asshat, a person who lacks sufficient physiological self awareness to discriminate head from ass, or, ass from elbow.
Can be applied to certain persons confused by how many holes they should have, and what purpose they should serve. Sorry Confuso-Americans
Ex: a person who sticks his elbow in a toilet, and is astonished when he soils his pantaloons.

oop better stop this, lest I be re-fustigated by the mods. in my defense I found it necessary to become drunk to medicate my latest severe triggering.
Heh. self ref.

Re-fustigate: to be beaten senseless a second time.
yet again:

Saltine-American: the politically correct term for a whitey, ofay, white devil, Natzi, etc.

Note to Mods: do not take any of this seriously. I am nearly always satirical. Its just the way I have to perceive this lunatic world, as an act of basic psychological self defence. Or defense.
It was once said of me ,"s**t, man, getting a straight answer out of you is like milking mice."

Meaning much effort for little reward.
and the little teeny stool hurts the back.
...
Coda :
There actually is a piece of lab equipment that mechanizes the mouse milking process.
with glass connector milking nozzles sized for itty bitty mousy titties, (which presumably are quite fetching to mousy men) and an included vacuum pump.
This object was made because drug companies needed to know if new drugs were secreted in breast milk, as mice were the model critter. I would like to have one, just as a conversation piece. gonna look on E-bay right now.
...
Sadly, no,no, tragically, in the same catalog, a "small mammal guillotine". manually operated.
It is monstrous what we do to the little furry persons, as well as f.i. ,cattle persons.
if i ever get that billion, I'll open a mouse dairy.
Gotta stop before I get triggered on animal rights and enrant.

Enrant: to be caught up in a triggered rant.

read the book "On Intelligence, by Jeff Hawkins."
if the author's premise is correct, all mammals with neocortex are self aware. their minds are just simpler , not lesser in kind.
(all mammals have neocortex- almost by definition. PETA is right.)
ask a cat or dog owner if cats and dogs have minds or not. Clearly they do.

Mice and dogs have names. they are just expressed as odors rather than words.
Another example of a Secret Language.

Jää.

This is ice in Finnish and it resembles no other language. And, yes, it looks funny. Pronounced something like [yah] but the long vowel is closer to that in 'man'.
