This could be, culturally, the most important book of the century. Not only is it essential for all who love (and live by) the diverse beauty of the English language, but it gracelessly transcends cultural boundaries and allows people of all nations to wallow, giggling, in the dark fetid recesses of their minds. That Norwegians know the word "mapatasi"; that the burghers of Rockford, Illinois, speak of "beef curtains"; that people in the Vatican advocate "getting off at Edge Hill" - this communion of sordid spirits could save the world! MAKE INNUENDOES, NOT WAR!
