Shpedoinkle


Explanation:
If it's going to be a word meaning anything, it would be Yiddish or from Yiddish.

But take a look at this site:

http://www.canniballovers.com/melissa/aspen.htm

Trey Parker, the creator of South Park, says, "It means everything and nothing. There's a word in 'Alfred Packer,' in 'Cannibal' -- everyone says 'Shpendoinkle' (sp) all the time. And it is -- I don't know, it's like 'tootsie bars' and 'cheesy poofs,' you know. We just make up words just for the hell of it."
