Reach up in the sky for the Bozone layer

What words could we make up to reflect the black culture?

I'll add Nigga-itis--the drowsiness that accompanies African Americans after eating a large meal.

From The Columbus Disptach

The Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational asked readers to take any word from the dictionary; alter it by adding, subtracting or changing one or two letters; and supply a new definition. Here are some of this year’s winners:

bozone: the substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating (as in: The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.)

cashtration: the act of buying a house, rendering the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period

caterpallor: the color you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you’re eating

decaflon: the grueling event of getting through the day consuming only what’s good for you

giraffiti: vandalism spray-painted very, very high

hipatitis: terminal coolness

inoculatte: to take coffee intravenously when running late

intaxication: the euphoria of a tax refund that lasts until you realize that the money was already yours

reintarnation: a coming back to life as a hillbilly

sarchasm: the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it
