  • I baking powder?

  • Goes with guesstimate and other fun constructions that have more truth in them than the real word. (Try making your way from one side of a function room to the other… "exsqueeze me" is pretty much what you have to do.) That said, "guesstimate" seems to have acquired real word status, with dictionary definitions and everything. So not quite the same thing. Perhaps it's only a matter of time for exsqueeze.
