WORDPLAY – January 2010

WORDPLAY

 

smilingThe Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational once again invited 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 winners:

 

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 asshole.

 

3. Intaxicaton: 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.
