Fun wordplay: The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to

changing of one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this

realize it was your money to start with.

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

getting laid.
