And the following is the type of stuff that warms my ♥

A list of recent winners of a word contest sponsored by the Washington Post Style section.
To enter, you take a word, change one letter in it, and offer a new definition.

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding a stupid person that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

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

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.)

Finishing you off with Words of Wisdom:
"The really frightening thing about middle age is that you know you'll grow out of it."
- Doris Day
"The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation."
- Benjamin Disraeli
"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."
- Albert Einstein
"With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."
- Steven Weinberg
"Dead Meat" is redundant. Once something gets classified as meat, it hardly ever recovers.
