The Sky Dragon Entries into the Chan Dictionary

Three out of four of our dictionary entries are in honor of one of The Sky Dragon's passengers since Wanda LaFern was a Queen of the Follies! The fourth, "Burlesque," is because I frankly wasn't certain what the difference was between that and a Follies.

BURLESQUE (French): A theatrical enertainment of a broadly humourous, often earthy charade consisting of short turns, comic skits, and sometimes striptease acts.

FOLLIES: A type of theatrical production usually designed to showcase beautiful women and frequently thin plot lines.

SUPERCEDE: (1) To cause to be set aside. (2) To force out of use as inferior.

TERPSECORIAN: Of or relating to dancing.
