    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. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

    2. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

    3. 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.

    4. Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of simply getting laid.

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

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

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

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

    9. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

    11. 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."

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

    13. Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

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

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

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

    And the pick of them all:

    18. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

    I'll have to add those to my vocabulary. One my brother came up with when he was a kid was "Quit antagerating me."

    redskinbucksfan The brownest of the brown liquors

    In traffic court a couple of years ago, a guy was trying to lie his way out of DUI for taking someone's keys off of the bar, trying every car util he found a fit (not a big bar) and getting caught spinning donuts in the parking lot. Every time the judge caught him in a lie, the guy claimed to be "dismoralized" by the situation. I laughed so hard, I got reprimanded and forced to sit in the front of the courtroom. It was a truly "dismoralizing" experience.

    Between Tyson and Don King, you could write a book of them. That one was beautiful though.

    RugbyBuck Our church has no bells.

    Not exactly a new word, but a great line from one of a buddy's clients: "I knew I had the right to remain silent. I just didn't have the ability."
     
  9. bearonu

    bearonu 60% of the time, it works every time.

    I obviously don't know where that line came from first, but I do know that stand-up comedian Ron White has been using that in his act for quite a while. He is one of the redneck comics in Jeff Foxworthy's little group. I have his DVD "They call me Tater Salad", it's pretty damn funny. He uses that line in the story he tells about getting arrested outside after getting thrown out of a bar.

    That's funny. Thanks for the heads-up. Maybe this guy with the assault/domestic violence charge is cribbing Foxworthy. That's even better, actually.

    Somebody totally stole that from a Far Side comic. Somebody owes Gary Larson a case of beer.

    "The bozone layer: shielding the rest of the solar system from the Earth’s harmful effects." [The cartoon had an atmospheric layer composed entirely of clowns]
    - Gary Larson, "The Far Side"

    By the way, I thought that was also the new name for Bucknuts?:2004:
