Each year the Washington Post asks readers to take any word from the dictionary ...
alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter and supply a new definition.

a. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.
b. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
c. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.
d. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.
e. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
f. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.
g. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease.
h. 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.
i. Glibido: All talk and no action.
j. Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when you have been smoking marijuana.
And, the pick of the literature:
Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an ass

The rules are stated above, I'm sure OTers could add a few more clever ones.
