If you like words and word play, you are going to want to check this out.
It’s the “Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational”. The contest asks ask readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.
The results are hillarious.
By the way, apparently it’s not really authored by the Post.
Nevertheless, it’s worth a read.
Here are the winners:
1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.
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.
