"an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust."
And Wikipedia has convinced me by displaying this :
The word often appears in books or stories as a comically long word, e.g. "Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy" (an episode of The Simpsons), Abraham Simpson asks Homer whether pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is what's wrong with Marge; a cartoon episode of Rocket Power, in which a dimwitted character named Twister successfully spells the word on his spelling test; High School Musical 2: What's What Edition refers to this as the longest word.
If it's appeared in The Simpsons and High School Musical then it's got to be a load of tosh !
