9781479137831: Jim's Dictionary: Alphabetized Pessimism

In the tradition of famed lexicographers, Samuel Johnson and Ambrose Bierce, comes James Francis Johnson, ready to give his spiritual ancestors a run for their cynical money. In this volume of Alphabetized Pessimism, the reader will discover words that take on a whole new meaning, literally, for example when Jim defines “Recognition” as “Given to a man who grows a handlebar mustache.” Jim’s Dictionary is the ultimate leave-it-on-a-shelf-beside-the-toilet book, with its short, digestible entries. It may even encourage one to loiter a few extra minutes on the commode, which, in a one-bathroom house, may cause problems in the family. Then again, according to Jim, what is a family but a “collection of forced friendships, some of which fail?” ‘Nuff said.
