The Washington Post's Mensa 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 some of this year's winners. None of them get through spellcheck.
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. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
4. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.
5. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you're running late.
6. Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these like, really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.
7. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out
