    Each year the Washington Post's Style Invitational 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:

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

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

    Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

    Giraffiti: Vandalism 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, a serious bummer.

    Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

    And, the winner of the Washington Post's Style
    Invitational:

    Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid AND an *******.
