Closest?

Visual Thesaurus's WOTD says:
If you're at a loss to describe what Rice Krispies do in one word, here's crepitate -- a rather formal word that means "make a crackling sound." It may come as a surprise that crepitate's closest English relative is discrepancy.
I would have thought decrepit was closer, myself.
