Websters' First New Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language by Mary Daly and Jane Caputi
1987, Paperback

"Blasphemous in her intent, Ms. Daly - in cahoots with Jane Caputi - has composed a dictionary, a female counterpart of the 15th-century handbook for witch-hunters, the 'Malleus Maleficarum.' The 'Wickedary' would undoubtedly have sent this merry martyr to the stake had she lived in Salem or in Calvin's Geneva... Hurling thunderbolts of laughter at the sadostate, the foolocracy of snools, Ms. Daly's howlingly funny book strikes at the very source of religious authority embedded in the ineluctable biblical dictum that in the beginning was the Word and Word was God."
-Coral Lansbury for the New York Times
