My first dictionary: a contemporary lexicon

Ross Horsley, a cynic after my own dark heart has a blog called My First Dictionary which is presented just like those picture book dictionaries we used in primary school to learn vocabulary. This dictionary however probably isn’t a great one to start little Brad and Brittany on. It’s without a doubt very honest to the 21st century, and the contrast between the brightly coloured illustrations and the word definitions makes it even darker and more cynical. Some might find it disturbing, but in this “nanny-state” age of over censorship and escapist candy floss endings, I find it refreshing. Like a slice of bitter lemon after a fatty pork chop.



Found at the ever brilliant Neatorama.
