The Devil's Dictionary
"Dictionary, n. A malevolent literary device for cramping the growth of a language and making it hard and inelastic. This dictionary, however, is a most useful work." (41).
Not your Webster's dictionary, this dictionary is for those of us who take a more sardonic view of things. Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) was an American writer, poet, and journalist known for his satirical newspaper columns. This parody dictionary was first published in 1906 and is filled with Bierce's darkly humorous takes on everything real and imagined with some of his definitions hitting home on truths that are still relevant to us today.
