Newmarket Press annouced that it has submitted the word "phallographics" for inclusion in the Oxford English Dictionary. Editors at Newmarket coined the term to describe the art featured throughout the newly published Superbad: The Drawings (96 pages, $15), a tie-in to last year's hit teen sex comedy "Superbad."
For those who may not have seen the movie, the character of Seth, as a grade-schooler, had a compulsive habit of drawing penises in various and outrageous situations, in a notebook. You get to seem them all in the end credits. As much as it pains me to admit it, they're sickeningly funny.
The book also includes a foreword by "Superbad" screenwriters Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, who explain how they recruited Evan's brother David Goldberg (a lawyer in Vancouver, Canada) to create the illustrations for the film.
And in case you're wondering, the definition of the new word is as follows:
phal*lo*graph*ics (fa'lo graf'iks), n. The pictorial representation of a phallus, or a depiction relating to or resembling a phallus.
