See, it's like flame-retardant, only it's about a joke, and the joke-listener's resistance to humor, with a little fillip of stupidity thrown in for good measure - you're too dumb to get the joke, you're naturally joke-retardant. And there's a cruel-but-funny little built-in pun there! Retardant...retarded? See?

Well I'm laughing.

It SHOULD be a word. "My new shoes have incredible gription".

It's just much better than merely referring to "grip".

Fandiculous - This is when something is so ridiculous that you can't even believe it while it is simultaneously fantastic. It's one of those things that are just so good you can't believe it because it's ridiculous that it even just happened. Think about it, you'll be amazed at how often you can use it.
