I had the same reaction to this week's words, although I must admit that I thought "cingular" was a made-up word ("singular" with a "c") and was delighted to learn its meaning. I always thought "Cingular" was clever, and now I think it is more so.

But back to "suppurate." I must also admit that I didn't get the connection to a company until I read the explanatory paragraph, and even then I had to read it aloud. (The Bay Area cold spell must be freezing my brain.) Regardless, I expect that if I hear "Super 8" or "suppurate," I'll think of the motel chain first....
