My vote is for "leverage."

I must be too vocal about my hatred for this word because a colleague
sent me a joke email with ten or twelve derivations of it:

Leveragism: The act of leveraging

Leveragology: The science of leveragism

Leveragist: One who leverages

Leverenagelist: One who believes fervently in the power of leveragism

Leveragolic: One who practices Leverangelism.

And so on....

I have to see if I can find the whole list. It had me in stitches.
