Washington Post's Mensa Invitational

Recommended Posts

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing of 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 a$$hole.

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.

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.)

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