Not entirely an original coinage: "Pneumocephalus is the presence of air or
gas within the cranial cavity..." i.e. "airhead".

Except for the unfortunate apostrophe as plural:

Just passing the coined word along, not endorsing the author.
This writer has kicked over his own hornets nest with his post...
(I do not want to light off 9 pages of flame-war here.)

But "pneumoceph" does not seem like a gender-specific slur, and it might be
actually fun to use in other contexts.
