01) Alimony The screwing you get for the screwing you got.
02 Minute Man A man who double parks in front of a house of ill repute.
03) Kissing: Upper persuasion for lower invasion

Yes indeed. This book is A dictionary. Only difference between a Webster's dictionary and an Esar's dictionary is that every definition in Esar's dictionary is a joke.

This is probably the funniest book I have ever read in my life. Every page you turn to there's a great joke. I took this book to my work and it became an instant hit. I had to leave it in the common area so that everybody can browse through it in their break time.

Even though this book was written in 1943, the jokes are still funny. I was surprised that there were stereotypes in 40's also and some of them are still valid.

Here's one of my favorite from the book:

Courtship: Courtship is the time where a girl decides if she can do any better.

If you think that definition is funny, then this book is for you.
