Default Fake Definitions & Puns

On a day of casting my mind back, I recall listenint to I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue and there being a round where panel members would give their new definitions of words. So: euthanasia would be Chinese children, or rumination would be Australia.

I like this idea, but would like to expand it into further puns where possible.

Let me begin by offering Clich├ęsoisse, which is the typical uninspired soup a canteen makes day after day.

Testiculation, a bloke's way of expressing himself non-verbally by grabbing his balls.

School dissembly, an early morning ritual where schoolchildren gather and practise their excuses for not having done their homework.

And one in the original style of a new definition of a real word: Rehearsal, the act of putting a coffin back in the funeral vehicle after it's fallen out.
