Register today for a chance to win 1 of 10 paperback copies of my award-winning, politically incorrect book of satire, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY.
waffle: (n.) breakfast of politicians.
bathroom: (n.) where Americans go to argue about gender while the country goes down the toilet.
fanny-pack: (v.) to put on a few extra pounds during the holiday season.
In this Spirited Glossary for the Little Devil in You—winner of the 2017 National Indie Excellence Award for Humor—for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called) and life (such as it is), I endeavor to reinvigorate 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.
In the words of author and activist Brendan D. Murphy, “THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a sardonic antidote to the trite and asinine slogans and catchphrases—the basic language—of Big Brother’s thought-control system. On one level, it’s light and witty comic relief, and beyond the playful satire, it is scathingly accurate! If you’re in need of some conscious, fun, and thought-provoking wordplay then you might start with THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY. Warning: reader may experience symptoms of higher consciousness, greater clarity, and general merriment.”
Dowist: (n.) blind believer in the stock market.
The drawing will be held July 8, 2017. Be sure to sign up for a chance to win!
treason: (n.) crime against one’s country and its people punishable by reelection.
