This was sent to me from old pal David ex of Hong Kong and soon to be navigator extraordinaire on the Winter Trial….. The Washington Post’s Style Invitational asked readers to take any work from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting or changing one letter, and suppy a new definitions.
Here are some of the best entries:
1. 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.
2. Cashtration (n.) The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
3. Giraffiti (n.) Vandalism spray painted very, very high.
4. Sarchasm (n.) The gulf between auther of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.
