Contributing to the Oxford English Dictionary

Following my invention of a completely new word during my appearance on Quiz Show Eggheads I would like to suggest the word ‘trompone’ as a new entry to the Oxford English Dictionary.

My suggested meanings for the word are:
1. An incorrect version of the Italian word for ‘Trouser leg’
2. A new type of Pizza
3. An answer given in resignation in the faint hope it may be the correct answer in a TV Quiz Show

If you agree with my idea please leave your comments.

You can contribute to the OED here.

Below, my team mates react to my answer.
