Definition: Incredibly adorable
Sample usage: “Those shoes are as incredorable as four puppies playing with a baby sloth.”
Popularity: It’s clumsy, but it might be necessary. Everything has been “adorbs” for a while now. An intensifier gives the word extra punch. If you just said, “Those shoes are adorable,” the other person might think: “Just adorable? What’s wrong with them?” This removes any chance of the shoes not getting their full measure of respect.
