A snappy word or phrase to describe these

Posted by Bob Pawsey on April 02, 2006

I'm tickled by the humorous use of new meanings for old words.
Examples include:
? Rapscallion: Funky spring onion
? Disconsolate: A particular embassy
I haven't been able to learn of a snappy word or phrase to describe these. Does anyone have any ideas?
