The Devil’s Dictionaries, The Best of the Devil’s Dictionary and the American Heretic’s Dictionary
“Chaz Bufe has done a great job of blending his definitions with those of Bierce. Bufe certainly has the sardonic wit and caustic humor that characterized “Bitter” Bierce.”

The funniest people I know all seem to have a copy of the Ambrose Bierce classic, The Devil’s Dictionary, begun in 1881, which is not Satanic, but is certainly one of the most cynical (yet truthful) collections of bubble-popping definitions for many of our most sacred cows. This edition also contains a considerably longer modern successor to Bierce’s classic, by Chaz Bufe, written in the same spirit but updated for the 1990s. Highly recommended to anyone who craves the truth behind the pretense.
