Description

The irrepressible, hysterical, puntastical Tim Vine, star of stage and screen, treats all of us here in his first joke book. Packed full of zingers and hilarious illustrations, if this doesn't put a smile on your face, nothing will. What's not to like: The other day someone left a piece of plasticine in my dressing room. I didn't know what to make of it. I'm against hunting. I'm actually a hunt saboteur. I go out the night before and shoot the fox. I saw this bloke chatting up a cheetah. He was trying to pull a fast one. Black holes. I don't know what people see in them. So I fancied a game of darts with my mate. He said, 'Nearest the bull goes first.' He went 'Baah' and I went 'Moo'. He said 'You're closest.' Velcro. What a rip-off. Black Beauty. He's a dark horse. I've got a sponge front door. Hey, don't knock it.show more

Back cover copy

Gags aplenty, no matter what your age! I fell in love with a clumsy cleaner. She swept me off my feet. Frozen apples. They're hardcore. Black Beauty. He's a dark horse. I refuse to work in a coal mine. It's beneath me. Velcro. What a rip-off. This jellyfish walked into a shop. I thought, he's a slippery customer. I was playing tennis with a napkin. I said, Hey, don't serviette. ... AND LOADS MORE ORIGINAL TIM VINE JOKES AND ILLUSTRATIONSshow more
