Washington Post's Mensa Invitational ?

Ever have people who just forward the joke of the day that's kinda funny or you gotta read this, or please forward to ten people for good luck?

"Something good will happen to you tonight at 11:11 PM. This is not a joke. Someone will either call you or will talk to you online and say that they love you. Do not break this chain. Send this to 13 people in the next 15 minutes. Go."

Here's one that keeps popping up: The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational

I won't repost the whole link as you can find the real Urban Legend-like story as to why the Washington Post or Mensa doesn't have a link at www.Take Our

Nonetheless, here's the edited version with 10 of the words that I like:


Here is the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational which once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary and alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

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

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

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

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

5. Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

7. Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

8. abbergasted (adj.): appalled by discovering how much weight one has gained.

9. Frisbeetarianism (n.): the belief that, after death, the soul flies up onto the roof and gets stuck there.

10. pokemon (n.): a Rastafarian proctologist.
