"Exhausted demonstrators looking for the lightest reading they can find, at least in the literal sense, might want to pick up Joshua Glenn and Mark Kingwell’s Wage Slave’s Glossary,” a nifty pocket-size volume also spotted on the shelves in Zuccotti Park. A follow-up to the authors’ Idler’s Glossary,” the book provides energized Marxists and depressed Dilberts alike a witty guide to terms like air family” (the false sense of community among co-workers), afternoon farmer” (19th-century slang for someone who wastes the entiremorning), keeping up with the Joneses” (the title of a popular cartoon that first appeared in 1913) and on the wallaby” (Australian for tramping the country on foot, looking for work”), not to mention more self-explanatory terms. (Bossnapping,” anyone?)"
