Nihilartikel Fake entry

This is an appropriate word at the time (I was actually thinking of Ninnyhammer) given that it means a nothing article. It seems every dictionary has at least one article which is totally bogus to help catch copyright thieves. Does the OED? I am not sure. I do know the Oxford American does ..esquivalience, which is supposedly the wilful avoidance of one’s official responsibilities or the shirking of duties.

So how do we bring this lovely Latin-German word into usage? Think of how many Nihilartikels are inserted in the Internet, or used as dubious sources during arguments?"
