Motion 200/1: Stealing wonko's idea? Naughty Eugene!

Create the following monster:
__The Koogum__

Set the new gibberish word to be "EndlessHall".

I don't mind you stealing my Koogum definition, since you've made it more interesting than I was planning to; however, I'm afraid I'll have to vote against this if you want to make "EndlessHall" the Gibberish word. Although it is strictly speaking not an English Word, it's close enough to one that the results can't be good - either we'll have something that should be called the "Endless Hall" and is gratuitously missing a space and thus harder to read, or we'll have something that shouldn't be called the "Endless Hall" and thus will have a completely counterintuitive name. I'd greatly prefer a Gibberish word that was actually gibberish, like Permerang, Maxital, or Threebite.
