ApolloAndy's avatar I was flipping through the classic thread: "What has happened to coasterbuzz?" and stumbled upon this post of Chitown's:

As long as this topic pretty much covers anything and everything, I figured you guys might like these newly created words with definitions. I received this in an email. Enjoy!! Each year the Washington Post's Style Invitational asks readers to take
any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding,
subtracting, or changing only one letter and supply a new definition.
Here are the 2002 winners:

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

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of
getting laid.

Giraffiti: Vandalism painted very, very high.

Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person
who doesn't get it.

Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit).

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.

Dopeer Effect: The tendency to stupid ideas to seem smarter when they
come at you rapidly.

And, the winner of the Washington Post's Style Invitational:

Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.


And I thought about some coaster related entries, aside from the already well know "enthusiass":

Steal Coaster - Anything sold by CCI.

Hairtime - Weightlessness strong enough to raise long hair.

Innsomniac - The road trip roomie who can't sleep in hotel/motels.

Fasst Passass - The guy who feels the need to taunt you as he cuts.

Add your own!

Steal Coaster? Not always. I have it on good word that the 4 million Holiday World paid for Raven wasn't all they had to put into it. Think 3 times that, and you'd be close to what ended up making it what it is today. :)

ApolloAndy's avatar Oh yeah - another one:

CP - What everyone watching the TTD webcams did.

Homey, has it occurred to you that that is exactly the point behind the "steal coaster" comment?
