Wayne's Words

From my old friend from Eastern Jr. High and Lynn English High School....  Long time Melrose Zoning Board of Appeals Member, Wayne Webster.

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again invited 
readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, 
subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. 

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 Intaxicaton: 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. 

6 Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the 
purpose of getting laid 

7 Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high. 

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

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

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

11. 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. 

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

13. Glibido: All talk and no action. 

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

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

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

17. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half 
a worm in the fruit you're eating.
