I don't know any specific words, but I do know lot's of phrases. "Taking the Browns to the Super Bowl probably has to be my favorite one I've heard so far. haha

A word for forgetting someone's name when introducing them to somebody else would be useful... That and one for forgetting what you were doing. Yet, we have words like discombobulated. Go figure, huh?

I think we should make one up! Language is constantly evolving. We can totally make this a word by next century. Hmm...

Damn it, even the word "toilet" comes from older words that just mean "washing up." HUMAN LANGUAGE HAS BEEN POLITE FOR LONG ENOUGH! ...Guh! There's no word that correlates both pee AND poop. Okay...this is going to take more effort then I thought. I MIGHT need to learn Greek and Latin.

@IEatTacosForDinner Scotland to the rescue! "Tartle"
A Scottish verb meaning to hesitate while introducing someone due to having forgotten his/her name.

Tacos, Douglas Adams did make up a word for walking into a room and forgetting what you came in for. I believe it was "woking."
