No, I Don't Mean "Uglification"

Best new word ever: "ooglification." The phenomenon of substituting the syllable "oo" into a word to make the word sound more like slang — or to make slang sound like super-slang. Like "cigaroots" or "antooters" or the like. It's a real word, though it's sparsely documented online.
