"'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'" --a Tweet sent by Sarah Palin in response to being ridiculed for inventing the word "refudiate," proudly mistaking her illiteracy for literary genius, July 18, 201
In this example, both refudiate and misunderestimate are examples of palinpropism.

The ironic act of creating a new word to mock someone else making up new words using a website that promotes and archives English slang.
Calling Sarah Palin's creative use of the English Language Palinpropism on Urban Dictionary is both ironic and idiotic.
