good old-fashioned humour with a sprinkling of general knowledge,
This review is from: Uglier Than a Monkey's Armpit: Untranslatable insults, put-downs and curses from around the world (Hardcover)
What fun! There's something tirelessly amusing about bad language that you don't grow out of in adulthood, though you might become better at hiding your sniggers. I'd challenge anyone not to enjoy this rollocking guide to insults through the ages, or to not be tempted to try them out on unsuspecting audiences of various cultures ... It's also beautifully produced and illustrated, with an entertainingly informative introduction to each language section. Classic.
