New words

  1. The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers
    to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting,
    or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

    Here are this year's winners. Read them carefully. Each is an
    artificial word with only one letter altered to form a real word. Some
    are terrifically innovative:

    1. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until
    you realize it was your money to start with.

    2. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

    3. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops
    bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows
    little sign of breaking down in the near future.

    4. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the
    subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

    5. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

    6. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the
    person who doesn't get it.

    7. (One for Glen) Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late. (But then again he don't need to be running late)

    8. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

    9 Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

    10 Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these
    really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's
    like, a serious bummer.

    11. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day
    consuming only things that are good for you.

    12. Glibido: All talk and no action.

    13. Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when
    they come at you rapidly.

    14. Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after
    you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

    15. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into
    your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

    16. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a worm in
    the fruit you're eating.

    And the pick of the lot:

    17. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an a$$hole
