    The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing only one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this year's {2005} winners:

    1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
    2. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
    3. Intaxication: 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.
    10. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.
    11. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)
    12. 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.
    13. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.
    14. Glibido: All talk and no action.
    15. Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
    16. Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.
    17. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.
    18. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.​
    And your favorite is ... ?

    I can't decide between #12 & #16. :lol:
