Word-nerd comedy

From novelist Steve Perry's blog, two lists: the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational, in which contestants change a modern English word by one letter, and supply a definition for the new word; and the Post's annual contest winners, wherein the entrants supply alternate definitions for standard words. Both lists are hilarious. My personal favorites are Sarchasm (the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the Person who doesn't get it) and Ignoranus (a person who's both stupid and an asshole).
