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.

SELF-EVIDENT, adj. Evident to one's self and to nobody else.
Rabbit, rabbit, Doug!
This post makes it self-evident that I am the firstest here today!
I keep reading it as, "devil itself".
SELF-EVIDENT, adj. Presented by oneself, on behalf of oneself. Which is typically disparaged in a court of law. As is everything else except the, em, fee paid to the judge.
Happy belated birthday to TLP and Terry. Caw, caw.
And a belated Dagnabit, dagnabit.
SELF-EVIDENT: Tiger Woods
we hold these truths to
be self-evident that
all wo/men are created equal
etc etc etc etc...........
It goes without saying.
I have nothing clever or odd to add, that much should be self-evident.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Which obviously means I get to have my own way -- so the definition of self-evident is whatever serves me best.
Ariel, that's fairly well translated.
Dagnabit to you, OC.
Subtle, Thom. Well done.
Bless, bless, Bear. You keep holding that, by the way.
Obviously, Icy. Good girl.
Not to me, sauerkraut, but I have trouble seeing past my belly.
Right you are, Gnat. Good to hear from you.
Mirrored justice, Quilly?
