Product description

Rarely does a humour title come along that is a true gem. Destined to be an instant classic, this is one such book. Containing hundreds of 'new words', it is a marvellous collection of hilarious expressions invented by the extraordinary comic mind of Keith Barker Main. Wry, dry, sly, sometimes rude, but always laugh-out-loud funny, his intelligent brand of humour casts an irreverent look at the age we live in and condenses modern cliches in our society into truly memorable words, some of which have already entered the "Oxford English Dictionary". For the last three years, millions of readers of "Metro" newspaper have delighted in the comic creations of this cheeky modern wordsmith and now, with superb illustrations throughout, this book is set to take the humour market by storm.
