About this title


A brand-new original dictionary of arresting, witty, impudent, pithy definitions of words, people, and events in the news of today and yesterday. In the words of George Bernard Shaw, "In this world, if you do not say a thing in an irritating way, you may just as well not say it at all, because people will not trouble themselves about anything that does not trouble them."

Sample dyslexic definitions:

Aging: Growing old gracefully isn't easy. It's impossible.

Atheists: Never say Dei.

Best Sellers: If it sucks, it sells.

Big Business: The customer is always robbed.

Bigger Is Better: The principle that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

CEO: Chief Embezzlement officer.

Christianity: After Christianity conquered the world, worldliness conquered Christianity.

Dubya: Terminologically ill: guilty of Bushering the English language.

Stock Market: The source of Mad Dow disease.

Three R's; Reading, writing, re-booting.

TV: A tale told by a vidiot, full of sound and blurry.

Viagra: A source of Viaggravation.

War Profiteers: Paytriots.

Writers: The only things they have in common are envy and alcohol.

Zoo: What is a zoo but a jail in which every inmate is innocent?

About the Author:

A librarian-administrator, consultant, writer, and teacher for 50 years, Murray L. Bob is a committed contrarian - or a contrarian who ought to be committed - depending on your point of view. Father of three, grandfather of two, he, his wife, and their dog live (or some facsimile thereof) in a relatively remote region of Western New York. Like Stendhal, Bob expects his writing will be appreciated 100 years after his death - which is why he is having his brain cryogenically preserved.
