The Devil's Dictionary: The Skwib Updates: B

Devil's Dictionary -- BIt has been a hundred years since Ambrose Bierce first published his satirical classic (unfortunately as The Cynic’s Word Book, a title he did not choose), so we thought for the summer season, we would update a few terms to reflect the current state of our language.


BEAUTY, n. The power by which a woman charms a lover and terrifies a husband.

The Skwib Update:

BEAUTY, n. A state that can be applied, surgically inserted, grafted or otherwise purchased, but which is nonetheless the most important human attribute.
