Were you aware that a fetish (n.) is anything, such as the stock market, falsely believed by primitive peoples to possess divine, magical or supernatural qualities?
Did you know that disclosure (n.) is when they finally tell us everything and nothing changes?
THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY defines these terms this way—so they must be true!
Here’s another deliciously veracious definition from this forthcoming Spirited Glossary for the Little Devil in You …
waffle: (n.) breakfast of politicians.
From the back cover …
In this knee-slapping dictionary for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called) and life (such as it is), award-winning author Sol Luckman (SNOOZE : A STORY OF AWAKENING) reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it.
Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!
genetically modified organism (GMO): (n.) member of the public who has regularly consumed the biotech industry’s food products.
Taking a page from Ambrose Bierce’s scathing satirical masterpiece, THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY updates the genre to include blistering contemporary references and no small sampling of risqué humor to make adults giggle like mischievous teens.
entanglement: (n.) quantum physics term for when the sheets wrap around two bodies in space.
treason: (n.) crime against one’s country and its people punishable by reelection.
shadow side: (n.) self you encounter when you do not look in the mirror.
