Happy Friday!

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 the

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

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

  • Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

  • 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.

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

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

  • Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are
    running late.
  • Finally, a solution!

  • Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

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

  • Glibido: All talk and no action.
  • I know some of these people.

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

  • Arachnoleptic fit (n): The frantic dance you perform
    just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.
  • And I've done this.

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

  • Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
  • Does anything more really need to be said?

Have good weekends and be safe!
