Words with Different Meanings

My brother e-mailed me this a while back.

I was just wondering what kind of definitions interferencers would come up with for the following words.


The Washington Post recently published a contest for readers in which they were asked to supply alternate meanings for various words. Following are 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.

Flabbergasted(adj.), appalled at how much weight you've gained.

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

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

Gargoyle (n.), an olive-flavored mouthwash.

Bustard (n.), a very rude Metrobus driver.

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

Flatulence (n.), the emergency vehicle that picks you up after you have been run over by a steamroller.

Balderdash (n.), a rapidly receding hairline.

Semantics (n.), pranks performed by young men studying for the priesthood.

Oyster (n.), a person who sprinkles his or her conversation with Yiddishisms.

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

If he did, he stole that from my Dad, because I've heard him say that first!
