Redefining misanthropy for a fresh generation. Standard posts begin with a definition from Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary followed by a modern adjustment. Miscellany on Wednesday and storytelling on Saturday.

REASONABLE, adj. Accessible to the infection of our own opinions. Hospitable to persuasion, dissuasion and evasion.
no way, first? that is not reasonable!
Lately whenever my 9yo asks mea question, following my answer she replies, "Hmm, that sounds reasonable". She alternates being posessed by polite and sarcastic demons. No idea where she gets that from.
hjeyhi: hey ya, hi ya, Kyah!
REASONABLE, adj. Obedient.
REASONABLE: Anyone who does things my way.

Kyah: i find it perfectly reasonable to see you up there in the top position.
and i'm pretty sure it's reasonable to think teh penguin won't have a shot at being first for teh next few weeks, what with being on vacation, and all. ; )
Reasonable: that which makes should sense, even when it doesn't.
hahahahahaha! laughing at my mis-directed definition, which should have made sense, even tho' it didn't! d'oh! guessing you know what i meant, but, just in case, lemme try again:
Reasonable: that which should make sense, even when it doesn't.
thinkin' it was reasonable for you to assume i was going for a play on words up there. thinkin' it's what i should have done, but didn't. sigh. ; )
Reason is for folks who aren't able to face the nonsense and randomness of it all.
I must live in a Reasonable neighborhood, it's full of angelic devils!
tlp that is a good one :)
What can I add?...nothing.....so I shall be Reasonable and leave it at that.
Reasonable: my response to everyone else's unreasonability (is that a word?). Errr, just don't ask me to balance that level on my head.
Reesinable: what grone ups keep teling kids to be but they cant show us how too be it.
Kyah, well done. It's reasonable enough.
Sar, I bet your 9 year old has a blog you don't know about.
Amoeba, make that obedient when paid.
Excellent example, Puppy!
TLP, there's a definition I can get behind. Superior and bleak at once!
Sounds reasonable to me, Icy. Sounds like a neighborhood.
Mo'a, that's circumspect.
Ha, Actonbell. I wonder what went wrong?
Sure, Hobbes, when you're a renegade king.
SACADA, do as they say, not as they do.
By the way all, I'm online courtesy of a weak wireless signal so if you hear no more from me this week, it's only my electric heart that quit beating. See you all Saturday if not before.
