A new addition to the Big Book of Bunkum:

niptual (n.) a marital mistake that comes back to bite one unexpectedly

e.g., “Love to hear more about the lethal little thing – the niptual – I mean”, said the shrink soporifically as the vexed vampire droned on about an encounter with trilobites, trolls and tosspots, not to mention the telltale signs of a sticky wicket, handsome hickey business deal gone wrong.
