    This has done the rounds for a few years, but worth a view if you haven't seen it before.

    Done the rounds before

    The Washington Post recently published a contest for readers in which they
    were asked to supply alternative meanings for various words.
    The following were some of the winning entries:


    Abdicate (v.), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.

    Carcinoma (n.), a valley in California, notable for its heavy smog.

    Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk.

    Willy-nilly (adj.), impotent

    Flabbergasted (adj.), appalled over how much weight you have gained.

    Negligent (adj.), describes a condition in which you absentmindedly
    answer the door in your nightie.

    Lymph (v.), to walk with a lisp.

    Coffee (n.), a person who is coughed upon.

    Balderdash (n.), a rapidly receding hairline.

    Testicle (n.), a humorous question on an exam.

    Rectitude (n.), the formal, dignified demeanor assumed by a
    proctologist immediately before he examines you.

    Circumvent (n.), the opening in the front of boxer shorts.

    Frisbatarianism (n.), The belief that, when you die, your soul goes up
    on the roof and gets stuck there.

    ***************************

    word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting or changing one
    letter, and supply a new definition. Here are some recent winners:

    who doesn't get it.

    Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

    Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of
    obtaining sex.

    Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously.

    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.

    Glibido: All talk and no action.

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

    Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a refund from the IRS, which lasts
    until you realize it was your money to start with.

    And finally . . .

    Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an a*shole.
