There are some really great definitions in here that will keep you coming back for more. ie Debt: something you never notice until it gets up to your eyeballs. Reality: A state in which you assume everybody else resides, until you start dating. Super Bowl: Thirty second clips of men running in between highly anticipated commercials.
Anyway you get the idea... there are even better ones than these in there but I thought you'd like a quick taste.
Be warned though, some of the jokes are for more mature audiences... Like 17 and up.

The title could just as well have been "The Official Anti-PC Dictionary". Napoli has a way of inviting the reader to look at everyday things from an entirely different perspective than what he or she has been conditioned to believe and accept. Page after page of punch lines that make you laugh at the gut level, and think at the brain level.

This book is a must have! My husband got it for Christmas and was really enjoying it, and then when my in-laws visited my father-in-law picked it up. He was laughing so hard he was crying! I ended up getting it for his birthday. I highly recommend this book!

This book just isn't what I expected. Its definitions are not sarcastic. Rather, they appear to be an attempt at being witty, but without much success. The book gives the impression of having been written on the quick simply for the sake of writing something. It was very disappointing.

Probably the lamest attempt at a humorous tome I have "tried" to read. You know that guy at parties who tries to be as funny as the naturally funny guys and he chimes in with a banal remark and everyone feels uncomfortable in their skin? That's this book.

This has got to be the greatest book ever written. It should be required reading in universities. You believe me, don't you?

Interesting book. Got it purely on a whim looking for some obtuse coffee table or bathroom reading. Definitely not for the easily offended, but then again, most sarcasm isn't anyways. Good book for the price. Speedy delivery.
