Dubious Definitions: A Dictionary of Misinterpretation
A dictionary unlike any other, Dubious Definitions: A Dictionary of Misinterpretation is a clever, yet infuriatingly entertaining read. It provides totally unreliable, inaccurate, tortured meanings to over 1,000 unfortunate words through the use of cryptic stupidity, abused double entendre, as well as the rigorous application of a finely honed level of ignorance. Dubious Definitions is the essential reference work for all those who love words and are content only with the most authoritative and soundly based interpretations. It is guaranteed to intrigue, puzzle, annoy, amuse, infuriate and mislead in generous portions, while still providing a challenge to the conventional viewpoint and a welcome diversion for the lateral thinker. Though often far-fetched, many of the meanings ring with a convincing aura of authenticity, which only adds to the satisfaction of untangling them. The quality of the author's research and his depth of learning are clearly evident throughout. The work is Dubious, at best!
