God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

From Neal Boortz:

Know what that means? I read the word in a story about the American Dialect Society. This group chooses a word of the year every year. In 1999 the word was "Y2K." In 2000 it was "chad." This week members of the society will gather to chose their word for 2005. That's where "crotchfruit" comes in. It's a word for children that has surfaced among proponents of child-free public spaces. Here it is in a sentence. "Madam, could you please find it in yourself to take some measures to keep your crotchfruit out of my yard?" Love it. We'll let you know what the word for 2005 as soon as these point-heads figure it out.
I love it! And I'm adding it to my vocabulary immediately.
