Definition: Depressing, but also hilarious. (merriam-webster.com)
Sample usage: “My trip home to see my folks was completely deplarious. My mom bought a can of compressed air to clean her Hummels and blew 14 of them off the shelf.”
Popularity: This is a doomed word. It sounds like a Latin name for a hair remover.
