The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again invited 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 winners:

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

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

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.

Karmageddon: It's when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, and then, the Earth explodes.

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

Glibido: All talk and no action. (I liked this one)

Arachnoleptic Fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web. (my hubby does this a lot)

Bealzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

Caterpallor (n.): The colour you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.
