    The Washington Post's Style 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 this year's winners:

    1 - 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.

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

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

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

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

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

    7 - Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

    9 - 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.

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

    11- Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

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

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

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

    16- And the pick of the literature: Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole
