    Someone sent me this list for my birthday and I thought some might enjoy it here also.

    Cheers,

    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.

    Dopeler 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.

    Pretty good list but hasn't "Ignoranus" been around for awhile???
    I though it was one of those words or phrases that came out of the 80's like: "oh my gawd" and "gag me with a spoon".[​IMG]
    I like the words "reintarnation" and "Karmageddon" from the list.
