Disclaimer: (an Update) This was added for clarification in case any readers are out there scratchin' their heads, wondering "what the hell's this?" This is renamed a Cthulhuoid Dictionary. It is a redress of the Devil's Dictionary Redux transported to contemporary times like RIGHT NOW. That way, Old Bitter Bierce can keep the name of "Devil's Dictionary" for his own happy self wherever he is or was. The reason for the first part of this moniker "Cthulhuoid" is 'cuz, as you've already noted in my entry, I've added a bits of forteana. Not to worry, though, there will be more additional forteana in future dictionary entries. Being Cthulhuoid has little to do with Dread Cthulhu himself. It's simply about being above this sort of things that humanity has been wanting to do for years.
Abstinance-- An act of proclaiming your denials of ever incubating infants in record numbers at a high school church meeting where abstinance pledges are being made and broken.

Instead of using firearms, use blow torch to demand cash, only to get chased by a clerk armed with a Hawaiian war club. Hook the cable to the ATM, and connect it to the bumper of the Ford pick-up, then drive in order to rip open the machine to get at the cash. Only to rip off the bumper of the truck instead, then leave it behind along with the license plate for the cops trace it to where you live. Need we define it more?
Bermuda Triangle-- A disappearing act at the vanishing point.
Bigfoot-- An elusive fur coated bipedaled animal rumored to be ten feet tall.

Hey, somebody's gotta protect his family. You know?
Biphobia-- Two phobias, the hetero and the homo. Both parties would kill him for being a sellout to either. They fear loving both man and woman. Of course, they'll hold off the killing till they could get him cured. If successful, there won't be any killings. No guarentees though!

Hypocrisy-- Say one thing, do something different. Or put it this way, pretend you're very righteous and moral, then turn around when nobody's looking, and steal a kid's a lollipop, or screw your friend's wife when he's on vacation. Or put it in another way, GOP politicians denounced the stimulus package as unworkable and a failure. Then turn around, when (hopefully) nobody's looking, starting accepting stimulus money. After all, they figured: "Gee, the stimulus package must be working. Guess it's doing great for my home state." But, uh, the MSNBC people are watching. Even the Wall Street Journal. Feels great being a hypocrite, huh?

Therefore, somebody's going to Hell for that.

Nukio Suckerpunch-- An abreviated slang for "a noogie of a sucker-punch." Nothing Japanese here. It's simply referred to an act of rubbing knuckles on one's noggins as if in a playfully manly affection then a punch to the back of one's head with a closed fist. This maneuver is not to be confused with male bonding or any form of ritualized hazing. It is this that the victim is made a sucker. A classic metaphor is that of the GOP receiving Tea Baggers and other Libertarians with a "small government" and "pragmatic" political philosophy discussion.
Organism-- A state of existential being whose existence is simply ridiculous.
Paranoia-- Started back in the Cold War, Capitalist versus Communist. Now, it's Middle Eastern terrorists. We're getting worried about them being lawyered up and Mirandized. It's okay under a Republican president. But not so under the Democratic president! Republicans never screw up. Right?

Tea Buggers-- It's referred to an insect commonly known as a "Tea bug". It sucks juices out of tea leaves thus rendering them to be brittle and useless. Therefore, a Tea Bagger is a Tea Bugger. The intelligence has been sucked out of them, thus rendering the movement useless. Word has it the Tea Buggers at the meetings are discussing and searching for solutions. Right.
Torture-- The interrogative art of inflicting physical, and psychological harm, then asking scary questions that won't guarentee accurate information. But they'll make you squawk nonetheless!
Truth-- Opposite of lie, falsehood, and fraud. What is true is in the eye of the beholder. What you want to believe, is what is true. Perception is everything.
