UPDATE: 09/05/2011
I now have the #1 Google hit for this silly non-word. However, when searching for it, I spelled it right and discovered "subreptitious" is a real adjective derived from from the noun "subreption", which means:
  1. A calculated misrepresentation through concealment of the facts.
  2. An inference drawn from such a misrepresentation.
I did not know that.

Neither did the guy who wrote "subrepticiously" when he meant "surreptitiously".

You learn something new every day. If not, you're doing it wrong.
