Embiggen Your Soul (and TinyURLs)

“Hitch that team up Jebediah Springfield,
whip them horses, let them wagons roll.
That a people might embiggen America,
that a man might embiggen his soul.
his soul,
his soul, …, …”

Jebediah: [on film] A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.
Edna: Embiggens? I never heard that word before I moved to Springfield
Ms.Hoover: I don’t know why. It’s a perfectly cromulent word.

Both of those quites are from Episode 3F13: Lisa the Iconoclast from the Simpsons. Is it bad when I see a JavaScript that expands Tiny URLs and I immediately realize it’s named after a fake word from The Simpsons?

Seems there’s also a PHP/MySQL Content Management System called Embiggen.
