Description

Silly, shocking, weird, and hilariously funny, the one or two paragraph anecdotes that comprise Gregory's anthologies of human stupidity are culled from print, online, and broadcast media from all over the world. This collection of stories, trivia, and factoids about the British Isles and their residents confirms the universal suspicion that Britons, from haughty London aristocrats to kilted Scotsmen to the leprechaun-loving Irish to the wily Welsh, are indeed a breed apart in their affinity for idiotic activities and dumb deeds. For example: *Colin Braggs was arrested while trying to break into car in Frome, Somerset. Since the windows were misted, Braggs hadn't noticed the two policemen sitting inside the car. *In Scotland it is illegal to be drunk and in possession of a cow. * It is still illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour.show more
