Douglas Adams did a spoof dictionary with definitions for the whimsical names of English villages. From memory:
Risp: The long stalks of grass that get missed by your lawn mower.
Sturry: The little run, that is more like a speeded up walk, that you do when you are half way across the road and a car appears.
Weems: The cool feeling on the other side of your pillow when you turn it over.
