Each year, the Washington Post's "Style Invitational" asks readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are the 2001 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 literature...

IGNORANUS: A person who is both stupid and an asshole.
