The Berlin Dictionary
Written by Rachelle Beaudoin, The Berlin Dictionary is a tongue-in-cheek opus that pokes fun at everything from local landmarks <i>(Alcohol Springs: a sandpit that’s a good place "to target practice, light fireworks, and burn tires")</i> to French Canadian slang <i>(tatones: "boobs")</i> and even local fashion <i>(UCBU jacket: an electric-blue windbreaker given away by the United Brotherhood Credit Union that everyone in Berlin wears because "it’s wrong to turn down a free jacket")</i>.
The Berlin Dictionary is available at lulu.com ($18). To submit a definition for a future edition, e-mail Rachelle Beaudoin at: email@example.com
