Each year the Washington Post's Style Invitational asks readers to take any

Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

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

this reminded of someone.

Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.
My best friend has that problem where he gets his "wucking murds fuddled" - malapropism I think its called, and he says things like this all the time.

I've given up trying not to laugh now and sit there howling at him sometimes ( he's rotton back to me, don't worry ! )

We were in a meeting with about 6 others and he said about someone not in the meeting.
"I just think he's ignocunt"
Damn - I needed oxygen after that ! and he just sits there saying "what ? what're you laughing at ?"

It's a good job he's got a sense of humour.



Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
