Default New words

In case you missed it. Here is the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational
which 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.


The winners are:


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


2. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an *******.


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


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


5. 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.


6. Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of
getting laid.


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


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


9. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.


10. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.


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


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


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


14. Glibido: All talk and no action.


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


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


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


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


The Washington Post has also published the winning submissions to its
yearly contest, in which readers are asked to supply alternate meanings
for common words.


And the winners are:


1. coffee, n. the person upon whom one coughs.


2. flabbergasted, adj. appalled by discovering how much weight one has
gained.


3. abdicate, v. to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.


4. esplanade, v. to attempt an explanation while drunk.


5. willy-nilly, adj. impotent.


6. negligent, adj. absentmindedly answering the door when wearing only a
nightgown.


7. lymph, v. to walk with a lisp.


8. gargoyle, n. olive-flavored mouthwash.


9. flatulence, n. emergency vehicle that picks up someone who has been
run over by a steamroller.


10. balderdash, n. a rapidly receding hairline.


11. testicle, n. a humorous question on an exam.


12. rectitude, n. the formal, dignified bearing adopted by
proctologists.


13. pokemon, n. a Rastafarian proctologist. (GOTTA
LOVE IT!)


14. oyster, n. a person who sprinkles his conversation with Yiddishisms.


15. Frisbeetarianism, n. the belief that, after death, the soul flies up
onto the roof and gets stuck there.


16. circumvent, n. an opening in the front of boxer
shorts worn by Jewish men.
