    The Washington Post’s Invitational 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 the winners:

    Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

    Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the
    purpose of getting sex.

    Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high up on

    Tatyr: A lecherous Mr. Potato Head.

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

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

    Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

    Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease.

    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, man.

    Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

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

    Ignoranus: A person who’s both stupid and an a**hole.
    DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

    NOTE: No trees were killed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
