    The Top Ten Voted-On words on dictionary.com in 2006 were

    1. truthiness - The Word (episode 1)
    2. lincolnish - Appears in intro sequence, starting in episode 80
    3. Wikiality - The Word (July 31, 2006)
    4. it-getter - November 7, 2005 - Colbert Report premieres in Canada; Stephen calls them "it-getters"
    5. grinchitude - The Blitzgreig on Grinchitude
    6. factinista - Mentioned during The Word (episode 1)
    7. superstantial - Appears in intro sequence on 9/11/06

    8. Love - See 9
    9. Sex - Both of which, Stephen likes to make

    10. defenestrate - Stephen likes to do this, too

    But Stephen is not mentioned.

    And worse, the top seven words, which are the ones that directly relate to Stephen, are too new to be in the dictionary.

    BLASPHEMERS!

    Here's my challenge: form a sentence using the word "defenestrate."
