Each year the Washington Post's Style Invitational asks 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 2001 winners:


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


Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.


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


Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.


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


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


Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.


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


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, serious bummer.


Glibido: All talk and no action.


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


And, the pick of the literature:


Ignoranus: A person who is both stupid and an asshole.
