BRIT WIT: The Perfect Riposte for Every Social OccasionSUSIE JONES Book Number: 83088 Product format: Hardback
So many witticisms here that it's hard to know which to quote, though Erma Bombeck's 'Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth' must rank as a gem. Ripostes, insults, politics, culture, advice, old age - in all, 21 categories, all packed with witty comments you wish you'd thought of first. Spike Milligan 'I have the body of an 18-year-old. I keep it in the fridge.' Jerome K. Jerome. 'I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours', or Stephen Fry, 'The e-mail of the species is more deadly than the mail'. Here are entertaining comments from a varied selection of Brits through the years; Winston Churchill, William Shakespeare, Rod Stewart, Noel Coward, Samuel Pepys, Bob Monkhouse and many others. Brilliant - learn some of these and you'll never be lost for words again. And perhaps we should all heed Eddie Izzard's wise advice, 'Never put a sock in a toaster.'192pp. Line illus.
