It's 'sumpnspicious', better have a 'planbdextrous'!

"Five hundred Washington buses and about 90 subway cars now carry advertising posters with creative dictionary definitions of made-up words urging commuters to keep an eye out for danger and respect fellow travelers on the busy "Metro" system."

Sumpnspicious is a play on the slang pronunciation of "something suspicious". It is defined as "n. (noun) unattended package or odd, unusual behavior that is reported to a bus driver, train operator ... station manager or Metro Police."

PlanBdextrous: adj. (adjective) able to plan an alternate route home in case Metro is inaccessible due to unforeseen circumstances.
