Style – Words
The email I received from a old high school mate began
The best of The Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational
But when I did a search at Google the WaPo was vigorously denying any connection to Mensa.
So, here are the two best definitions of new words that came by taking any word from the dictionary, altering it by
adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supplying a new definition.
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.
Sarchasm : The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.
To me, these two new words describe the rabid right.
