Thread: Words....

  1. #1


    I don't know if any of you guys have seen this, but it just cracked me up and I thought I would share it.

    Each year the Washington Post's Style Invitational asks 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 2001 winners:

    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.

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

    Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

    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.

    Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

    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.

    Glibido: All talk and no action.

    Dopeer Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

    And, the pick of the literature:

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