Word Games

In contrast to head games, with which I have no patience, I really enjoy word games. There was a game credited to the Washington Post, which pops onto my radar from time to time that involved adding, dropping, or changing one letter in a preexisting word, then defining your new word. The list, which has been around for at least a few years, can be found here. Some of my favorites:
  • Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
  • Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
  • Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.
  • Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
Another geo-tweep brought this back to my attention today- always good for a laugh. But this time, I was able to come up with my own: Porkelain: Ceramic ham. Speaking of which, "I am President, and I am holding this ham."
