From Sanitas

A Lexicon for the 21st Century

John Turner


Armigerous: A condition Americans have idolized to a ridiculous extent.

Army: Large mass which consumes astounding quantities of food and exudes an aura of meaningless determination; harder to control than generally supposed.

Arrogate: A verb almost always allied with redundancy.

Arson: An artistic involvement with conflagration.

Art: A good thing that has been given more credit than it deserves.

Art Deco: An awkward style that nostalgia made beautiful.

Artifice: Always employed in alliance with cunning and décolletage for the purpose of subduing masculine vanity.

Artificialism: Explanation by someone who may know more than you do.

Aryans: A nonexistent race which has got some people excited beyond all reason.

A-scale: A questionnaire which if given to Ross Perot might result in nuclear meltdown.
