Book Description

21 Sep 2007

Welcome to the second, superb collection of cheerfully offensive jokes from the demented world of cult cartoonists Modern Toss – a Viz for the 21st century.

Fresh from their laugh-out-loud funny Channel 4 TV series, the familiar cast of misguided idiots – Mr Tourette; Alan; the Drive-by Abuser – are joined by a new bunch of fools keen to take a pop. Hand picked from issues 3 and 4 of the comic, this new Modern Toss book pushes the art of cack-handed cartoon drawing to a startling new level. Come and get it, yeah!

‘Badly drawn, utterly foul mouthed, mean spirited and misanthropic, it’s also very, very funny’ Independent on Sunday

4.0 out of 5 stars Just really funny 23 July 2009
Format:Hardcover
I laughed.

I laughed again.

Then i looked around to make sure no-one had noticed the childish book in front of me, full of profanities.

And i laughed some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, and somehow hilarious. 15 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There is something about this book which is very very funny - in fact it has made me laugh harder at times than anything else. I can't put my finger on what makes it so great - a combination of exceptionally well placed profanity and knowing, slightly satirical surrealism makes it genius I suppose. Mister Tourette is undoubtedly the star of the show - I get the feeling that although each strip featuring him is based on the same premise, I could read an infinite number of them and laugh every time.

If you object to profanity or nihilism then you may not take to this. But if you appreciate it for what it is, and enjoy the fact that the bad artwork just adds to the humour, then I don't think you'll find a funnier book.

On a side note, I wouldn't relate this book to its corresponding channel 4 TV series - I found the series rubbish compared to the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Merely making fun of serious disability 13 May 2009
By Robaire
Format:Hardcover
The Mr Tourette character does appalling damage to all the efforts of those who seek to convey a better understanding and more tolerant approach to sufferers of this neurological disorder. This book provides a mocking stereotyped portrayal of Tourette Syndrome which in around 90% of cases does not include the much celebrated (and laughed at) symptom of coprolalia (using obscene words inappropriately). Would it be tolerable to also make fun of those with autism, diabetes, cerebral palsy or the physically disabled. The media depiction of this syndrome means many sufferers are too ashamed to speak openly of their condition for fear of ridicule. This book and the whole Mr Tourette concept is in extremely poor taste and should not be patronised. It is comedy at the expense of others torment.
