This thread was patterned after Ambrose Bierce's "The Devil's Dictionary" that offers reinterpretations of words through satirical lenses. For example, a conservative is defined, rather humorously, as "A statesman who is enamoured of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others".

You can post definitions for members (MIG-A swan who looks too much in the sky to know that her eggs have cracked under her...soothing weight) [you can mix satire--not overt criticism and disdain--with respect or sympathy], terms on DDO, phenomena (trolling, flame wars, and so forth), etc.

Have fun!

Criticism: Something that you should threaten suicide over, leave, then come back, then report the person.

Debate: A period of periodicity, where Juno finds a lock to grace herself and maids play with tank tops.

Imabench: A person who always writes the opposite of the truth, and should be banned immediately for reasons fully understood.
