Get your fresh crop of funny right here

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 (2003) 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. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

  5. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high on the wall.

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

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

  8. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

  10. 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.

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

  12. Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

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

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

  16. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a grub in the fruit you're eating.
  17. And the pick of the literature:
  18. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
