Firstly, please note that the Kindle edition is advertised in VIZ itself for £2.99 during January 2013. The difference is apparently... "Due to local conditions regulation, the availability and pricing of titles on the Amazon.co.uk Kindle Store can vary from those of the printed versions. The price you pay in the Kindle Store is based on a number of factors. This price can change, for a variety of reasons, but we will always aim to provide the best value and lowest prices for the benefit of all our customers."
So that explains that, straight from the support network of the tax-dodging scamps.
Anyway, it's one hilarious book. I received the Profanisaurus as a present a couple of Christmases back, and the wife took a sneaky peek at the contents before applying the wrapping paper. Apparently, she was doubled-up and convulsing at some of the definitions. Praise indeed.
Time's moved on, and I now have a Kindle to fill with seminal masterworks such as this. It sits alongside Crime and Punishment, The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Don Quixote and a brace of other Kindle editions I wouldn't normally buy unless they were free or very cheap. None of which I've actually read yet. But I'll read this because I know it'll have me pretending to cough on public transport. Or beer will shoot down my nose. Or a piece of my lunchtime sandwich will go down the wrong pipe. It's that good.
And if you do choose to read this in bed as your S.O. slumbers, be prepared for some stern words after the shuddering bed has woken her (or indeed, him) up.
