New Words

The local newspaper recently 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 this year's winners:
  1. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding a stupid person that stops bright
    ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign
    of breaking down in the near future.
  2. Foreploy (v): Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of
    getting laid.
  3. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject

    who doesn't get it.
  6. Inoculatte (v): To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
  7. Hipatitis (n): Terminal coolness.
  8. Osteopornosis (n): A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)
  9. Karmageddon (n): its 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.
  10. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming
    only things that are good for you.
  11. Glibido (v): All talk and no action.
  12. Dopeler effect (n): The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they
    come at you rapidly.
  13. Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've
    accidentally walked through a spider web.
  14. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your

  1. these words are brilliantly thought of... wish i had their knack of wit!

  2. LOL! I hope the newspaper makes this a repeat event, Too funny... My favorite that truly made me LOL...

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

    I have met with this phenomenon, face to face, many times in my life. I may or n=may not have been the offending Dopeler.

    Ten Days! Or - for Linda, 8 days to catch the train and for me, 9 days for me to pick her up and head to WPB! Holy moly, I need to get to the dry cleaners!

    Big hugs :]

  3. I identified with almost all of them... Espeically the buzzing mosquito and the caterpallor ones. Hate bugs!

    Let the countdown begin heartily for the cruise... I'm getting so excited for y'all!

  4. These words had me cracked up! Hahaha!
    Witty though. :)

  5. I've gone camping many nights in a tent with Beezlebug. He's no good at all!


    It's good to know that there are still some folks with a keen sense of language to accompany a keen sense of humor.

    That also goes for those who "get it".


  7. All of Washing D.C. is in the Bozone Layer and the Capitol Hill residents suffer from the Dopeler Effect. Just sayin'.

  8. They are all hilarious!
    This would be a great blog contest!

  9. Those are hysterical. Love the Beelzebug. That happens here all the time.
    I am getting excited for all of you for the cruise too. You sure are going to have a good time BUT we want to hear all details.

  10. LOL!!! All of those are hilarious, but "osteopornosis" indeed deserve extra credits.

  11. good ones! i am not original enough to do that but loved seeing them!

    smiles, bee

  12. The Dopeler Effect is very very real!

  13. and a new language is born! Contact Webster's dictionary people.

  14. I wish I were smart enuf to come up with some of these clever words. I did indeed meet that Beelzebug many times when we lived in FL.

    Getting closer. Yay!!! Big hugs soon, honey...

  15. I want to have hipatitis

  16. I agree with Driller, I thought Bozone was the definition of DC and especially Capitol Hill.

  17. Sandee, I can't email you again.

    It gets returned saying -

  18. very funny list..Call in the girafaverly cause they're painting giraffiti on my roof!

  19. Item Number 2 is used a lot one one of the TV shows that Celestine watches.

  20. LOL i think Cashtration and Giraffiti are my favorites. but all are fantasterola

  21. Oh that was a brilliant idea. It's funny because they nailed down how I write my blog by subscribing to the Dopeler effect. I didn't know there was actually a phrase for it.

    Just swaying ;-)

    Hig Bugs oxoxoxo

  22. I'm sure Osteopornosis and Glibido would be part of our lifes when we hit 60 lol
