It Just Slipped Out
By Russell Ash
'Such was Catherine Morland at ten. At fifteen appearances were mending; she began to curl her hair and long for balls...' (Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey)'Will it jerk me off?' (Margaret Thatcher, inspecting a field gun in the Falklands)'You know, animals are very psychic. I mean, the least sign of danger and my pussy's hair stands on end' (Mrs Slocombe, Are You Being Served?)From the unwittingly filthy, to the gleefully subversive, double entendres have been making us laugh for centuries. In this hilarious survey, Russell Ash uncovers some of history's dirtiest double meanings. From the smut lurking between the polished lines of literature's most revered writers, to the public innuendo accidents that have tripped up even the most respected of politicians, right through to the sly innuendo that has characterized some of our best-loved comedies, IT JUST SLIPPED OUT has it all.
I Hate Other People's Kids
By Adrianne Frost
Oh, the blasmphemy! You're not supposed to hate children! They're adorable ... aren't they? Well, it's said that children are the greatest gift of all. But that doesn't mean you want to be seated next to one on a plane, does it? For the first time, Adrianne Frost lifts the lid on one of our last taboos, and reveals that not all kids are likeable. In fact some are positively crying out to be hated. In this hilarious handbook she guides you through all you need to know about hating Other People's Kids through history, categorising subspecies of brat and turning the tables on tearaways without appearing childish yourself. Learn to navigate kids in public places, and discover all the things parents like to think are cute about their kids, but are not. And what will you have learned when you come to the end of Frost's rant? That there's a lot more to hate than you first thought.
