Suppile

compounding Noun
A pile of supplies.
 
This was a nonce word that was created by a slip of the tongue. My friend accidentally combined the two words in verbal speech. This most likely happened due to the similarity in sounds. The “ply” of supply and the “pie” of pile flow together during speech. After the word was created, my friends and others started using it more frequently, because they thought it sounded cool. It also became part of our in-group vocabulary. Similar to the idea of a Shibboleth. It was fun to use a word only we knew the meaning of.
Etymology : Compound formed by combining the words supply and pile.
