REVENGE, n. The fifth member of the four food groups. The statement that “man cannot live by bread alone” is indisputably correct, though incomplete. A fuller and more accurate phrasing would be, “Man cannot live by bread alone. But throw in revenge, and he’ll give it a shot.”

–from the revised and expanded edition of The American Heretic’s Dictionary, the best modern successor to Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary
