Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column thankful for The Prolific One once again …See, we’re running short on time today, yet we knew that Dan Streeter would have something fun for the folks in the Corporate Suites inbox.Et voila … wordplay, courtesy of The Washington Post who asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are some of the winners:1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying (or building) a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time. 2. Ignoranus: A person who’s both stupid and an ass^$#.3. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize that it was your money to start with.4. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.5. 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.6. Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of bedding a potential mate.7. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.8. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.9. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.10. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.11. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)12. Karmageddon: It’s when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, and then the Earth explodes and it’s a serious bummer. 13. Decafalon: (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.14. Glibido: All talk and no action.15. Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.***We out, gratefully.
