Definition of Woman

  WOMAN   noun
      An animal usually living in the vicinity of Man, and having a   rudimentary susceptibility to domestication.
† It is credited by   many of the elder zoologists with a certain vestigial docility   acquired in a former state of seclusion, but naturalists of the   postsusananthony period, having no knowledge of the seclusion,   deny the virtue and declare that such as creation's dawn beheld,   it roareth now.  The species is the most widely distributed of all   beasts of prey, infesting all habitable parts of the globe, from   Greeland's spicy mountains to India's moral strand.  The popular   name (wolfman) is incorrect, for the creature is of the cat kind.   The woman is lithe and graceful in its movement, especially the   American variety (felis pugnans), is omnivorous and can be   taught not to talk.
