For Sale - Book. Pages. Words. Pictures. Hilarious.,
This review is from: The "Framley Examiner" (Paperback)
I received this splendid item for Christmas in 2003, and it really made me laugh. A lot. Then I put it away and forgot about it. I found it again just before Christmas in 2004, so wrapped it up and gave it myself as a present. Imagine my surprise when I opened it on Christmas morning the second time! And it made me laugh, a lot, AGAIN.
It's a well observed mickey-take of local newspapers. The property pages are in my opinion the best: "For Sale - Itchy, Hot, Cramped 2-bed semi. Stinks of flannel. Too close to local amenities. Will swap for bag of crisps". And the news stories are also particularly entertaining. With headlines like: "Bus Lane confused with bus lane", "Ireland turning into cloud" and "FLUFF MISERY" you can't go far wrong.
