Douglas Adams published his, in "The Meaning of Liff" .

One of those I do in fact use from time to time is a kingston bagpuize, for denoting an overweight and unfit, middle-aged, male jogger.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whaplode_Drove

I also quite like pott shrigley, which is a term for the week-old remains of a casserole or stew, eaten cold at 2 a.m. when very drunk: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pott_Shrigley

Pott Shrigley. That would be the perfect name for an Irish pub that serves shepherd’s pie. Freshly made, though. ;)
 
The story of a polymer.

This is not a story in the linguistic sense, but this self-writing story has a beginning, a middle and a definitive ending, and it is beautiful.
