    Word smith



    For you wordsmiths, here's this years list of winners from The Washington
    Post's Mensa Invitational, who 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.

    Enjoy!

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

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

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

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

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

    9. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

    11. 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.

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

    13. Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

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

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

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

    And the pick of the literature:

    18. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
