Wurdz, G. (1904). Foolish Dictionary, The. Retrieved from

The Foolish Dictionary was written by Gideon Wurdz (the pen name for Charles Wayland Towne, according to ,) and was published in 1904. According to the beginning of the book, it is An exhausting work of reference to un-certain English words, their origin, meaning, legitimate and illegitimate use... This a a short but amusing dictionary which redefines words in some interesting ways. Funny and sometimes bizarre observations are sprinkled throughout. In keeping with policy to read, rather than attempt to rewrite, books - even those with offensive content - nothing has been omitted. While many of the definitions may just seem confusing or corny to modern readers, there are a couple that also might be considered objectionable, particularly in section 10, which contains offensive content of a racial nature.
