    Litnet's version of Devil's dictionary

    Heard of Devil's Dictionary? Let us create our own version of it.

    I post a word. You tell us what it means. You post another word. The next person tells us what that means.

    Simple? However, our task is to be original.

    Example:-

    School:- the place where you first got intrigued by the opposite sex.

    So, word for you:-

    books
    People laugh at me 'coz they think I'm a fool...I smile because I made someone laugh

    Books:- The repositories of knowledge and experience, wherein a learned man discovers the extent of his ignorance, and an ignorant man fails to discover anything.

    This is a great idea for a game, Nikhar!

    Pulpit:-
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Thank you Lokasenna. Partial credit goes to you. I hadn't heard of Devil's Dictionary till I read it in one of your posts today.

    Tax Return:- A concoction of lies and delusions that aptly demonstrates the general public's highest form of artistry.

    Violin:- The extreme in the miniaturization of a handheld, bowed string instrument, representing the endpoint in humanity's quest to produce piercing and shrill sounds from one's fingertips.

    Map-- confusing document that enables a person to get lost much more quickly

    Fire
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Bulbous: an adjective only ever used in conjunction with the noun 'nose'. Except in pornography. Where it crops up a lot. Apparently.

    Mediator: A form of social parasite. As he is invariably paid by the hour, his wage is inversely proportional to his success; he has thus made a fortune from failure, and a living by strife.

    Football:
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Beach:- the final resting place of the ocean's flotsam and jetsam, and, on sunny days, also the detritus of humanity.

    Opera:-
