Extremely Convoluted And Confusing Names For Actions/Items

This thread was inspired in part by the SNL characters The Coneheads. Specifically, the way they would use extremely precise and detailed names for common actions/items, like the phrase "Consume Mass Quantities" for "Eating."

With that in mind, the goal of this thread is to come up with the most convoluted and confusing way of describing common items/actions followed by its (much) simpler name. The longer and more convoluted, the better.

To start off:

"granulated moisture absorbing material for the removal feline bodily waste materials"

Also known as:

"kitty litter"

I love this convoluted quote from Plankton (the bad guy in SpongeBob SquarePants show):

"Felicitations, malefactors! I'm endeavoring to misappropriate the formulary for the preparations of affordable comestibles!"

Instead of something simpler like:

"Hi bad guys! I'm planning to steal the formula for making krabby patties!"
