Urban Dictionary is our weekly feature to increase your wordification skillz--in other words, boost the vocab, increase to maximum verbosity, expand your linguistics, pimp your lexicon and otherwise make with the new words. Today's new word is in honor of our upcoming election: Veepstakes

Veepstakes: The process a candidate for president goes through to choose a running mate. It's a portmanteau* word combining the colloquial pronunciation of VP as "veep" and sweepstakes.

The winner of the veepstakes is awarded the honor of being trashed in the media for the next 5 months.

A: Who should McCain pick for VP?
B: I think he'll choose Matlock to win the veepstakes!

*portmanteau means: a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms. Aren't words awesome?
