Wash Post New Word Winners

Postby ScreamingWeasel » Fri Jul 04, 2003 1:05 pm

Each year the Washington Post asks readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing only ONE letter and supply a new definition.
Here are the 2002 winners:

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

#11 Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the
purpose of getting laid.

#10 Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

#9 Giraffiti: Vandalism painted very, very high.

#8 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.

#6 Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

#4 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.

#3 Glibido: All talk and no action.

#2 Dopeer Effect: The tendency for stupid ideas to seem
smarter when they come at you rapidly.

AND, THE WINNER of the Washington Post's Invitational:

#1 Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid AND an asshole.

The winner was clearly the right choice.

I have to agree there was a clear cut winner. I think someone should call Websters and add a few of these to the dictionary.

I especially partial to #1 of course #2 and #12 they all make sense to me and I think I will have to start useing these in regular conversation.
