The Bozone layer is getting thicker
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, June 07, 2007

James Fish sent me these. I laughed out loud at some of them. Some of them are terrific:
The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again 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. Read them carefully. Each is an artificial word with only one letter altered to form a real word. Some are terrifically innovative:

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

2. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

3. 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.

4. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

5. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

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

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

8. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

10. 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.

11. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.

12. Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

14. Arachnoleptic Fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked throug h a spider web.

15. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

16. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.

17. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an a$$.
Heed the rules and see if you can come up with some more.

Algoreithm - The well-defined right wing media procedure describing how to attack Al Gore whenever he says anything.

This one is weak, but I think it will work with this group...

Democrate - Huge container used by democrats that have a LOT of baggage - see Hillary Clinton

I like this one...

Sophistory - An ex post facto argument about historical events that seem plausible, but are fallacious or misleading and designed deliberately to be so. See Iraq War.

These don’t follow the rules (changed two letters), but I like them anyway...


Libertopian - A person that believes in the possibility of a fantasyland that exists only in the minds of libertarians where a government may or may not exist, but is irrelevant since it has no coercive power whatsoever, but every person in the society always engages in perfectly ethical commerce and never violates anyone’s natural rights.

Neo-libertopian - same as above, except that the government that has no coercive power whatsoever can still have a massive military and pre-emptively invade and occupy other countries.
