for word lovers

ANNUAL NEOLOGISM CONTEST
ne·ol·o·gism= A new word, expression, or usage.

Once again, The Washington Post has published the winning submissions to its yearly contest, in which readers are asked to supply alternate meanings for common words.

The winners are:

  • Coffee (n.), the person upon whom one coughs.
  • Flabbergasted (adj.), appalled over how much weight you have gained.
  • Abdicate (v), to give up all hope of ever having a flat stomach.
  • Lymph (v.), to walk with a lisp.
  • Balderdash (n.), a rapidly receding hairline.
  • Frisbeetarianism (n.), (back by popular demand): The belief that, when you die, your Soul flies up onto the roof and gets stuck there.
