Criminal Sentence 321: Creative Fiction

Overheard on the Sirius radio broadcast while I was at the gym:

I couldn't hide my surprisification at hearing this. I stopped mid-arm curl. This is a creative combination of the real words "fictitious" and "fictional." Will this make it into the next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary?
