Daffynitions. Off topic post.

I just thought we might need some fun time. And I wonder what this grand illuminated group could think up?

My contribution without thinking as you can tell.

Loosefly: When the little lock on your zipper breaks.

"The Washington Post's" Style 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 recent 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, a 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 literati:
ignoranus: a person who's both stupid and an a**hole



Indin word for lousy hunter.
Eleemosynary, my dear Watson.

( loose translation: Lord have mercy! )
Hilarious, Yvsa.

I love the "dopeler effect." In my business, there are people who rely on it for their livelihood!
