What did you think it meant when you invented it?

I invented a word to use to describes, "words that don't rhyme with any other words". But unfortunately the word I invented is "blorange" so I can't think of any examples. Thank you! I'm here all week! Try the veal.

When I invented it, it was an ironic way to describe a pile of my sketches. Instead of a glory pile, I called it a glory hole. It made sense then.
