  • A goofy word for explosion. Probably an extension of the joke that originated in Homestar Runner Strong Bad E-Mail #94, "Video Games," where a retro-style arcade game tells Strong Bad "your head a splode." The phrase has become an internet meme, but I've never seen this form of the word until today.
