A play on words from the Washington Post

I always enjoy these. Hope you do as well:
Here are the winners of this year's Washington Post's Mensa
Invitational which once again asked readers to take any word from thedictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter,
and supply a new definition :

>> 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 is both stupid and an *****hole.

>> 3. Intaxication: 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 a date.

>> 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 accidental ly 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.
