noun. Oh, self. Sweet, sweet self. Me me me. Ooh-la-me. Excuse me, folks... Me and I need to get to know myself a little better.

Real citation: “OregonMuse cuts me deeply by suggesting ‘self-besmittenness’ is a made-up word of Beauchamperian pretension. I like to think of it as more of a nonce word, a term I found when I was looking up ‘portmanteau’ to see if I was using it properly. (Status: Unsure.)”

Made-up citation: “A Presidential candidate needs buckets of self-besmittenness, zero grams of shame, and—for classified reasons—six fecal pellets from gelatinous zooplankton.”
