Update: This book contains NO entries by that braying yokel Justin Lee Collins; nothing by the 'skull with a rubber johnny stretched over it' that is Christian O'Connell; nothing by that woman who is presumably a stand-up, but who you WOULD. It has stories that have been included because they are FUNNY. Not because they happened to someone who is...er...*laughs*...famous.
If you're any of the above (and more) than this is the book for you.
A hilarious, retrospective look at your school days and those kids that made you laugh so much, milk came out of your nose (were you even drinking milk at the time?)
Well worth the wait.
And you know what the icing on the cake is? Jimmy Carr is NOT in it. Not ONCE. That, for me, is the mark of true perfection.
I've been passing this round the office and has proven most popular. You gotta have a copy, then you'll learn about things like lunchbox hierarchy and what a spooner is. You'll be asked questions on this later, so pay attention!
