INCEST SURVIVOR, n. One of the rare few victims of incest who has lived to tell the tale to Oprah.

INNOCENT VICTIM, n. The best kind of victim, for propaganda purposes. After all, who would care about a guilty victim?

MUFFLER, n. A device that reduces the noise of an internal-combustion engine, but not nearly enough.

world.

SCHOLERA, n. An acute, infectious, academic disease characterized primarily by serious intestinal-fortitude disorders.

UNBELIEVER, n. One who might believe all sorts of things, but just not the same exact things that you believe.
