"It's very rude, and it's very funny" (Observer Woman)
"genius ... it is by turns scabrous (cut-out-and-keep celebrity cock puppet), sweet (knit-your-own otter pattern) and daft - a picture of someone's chin made up to look like Jodie Marsh" (Independent on Sunday)
'It's very rude, and it's very funny'
A Christmas annual filled to the brim with rudeness

Forget the coffee table (although, it's very nicely bound & put together actually- unlike the intentionally random popbitch email), this book is the perfect loo-read (no, not the singer).
I do mean this as a compliment by the way, you can pick it up, enjoy a few moments of 100% hilarity and leave until you next pass by...
i hate xmas shopping so i think i may just buy everyone i know a copy of this.
It's pretty much the perfect present - except for maybe my grandparents... they might not be ready for 'popbits', 'chad wegkamp' and his huge testicles or 'otter or rotter'.
I've loved the Popbitch email for yonks - so this is a very nice suprise & bloody good value too.
If you want to know what celebrities really get up to, this is the book for you! Popbitch doesn't just cover the same old stories as Heat et al, it gives a real insight into their sometimes bizarre world. Mix these stories with pictures of otters and other cute animals and you've got a riveting read.
As soon as you open the cover you realise that this book has been something of a labour of love. If, like me, you're a fan of the Popbitch website and newsletter you'll see some familiar stuff, but also a lot of new material, and the whole thing has been assembled into chronological order, running through the years from when Popbitch was born. Inside you'll find blind items ("which 80's pop star...?"), a couple of comic strips, and even instructions on how to knit your own otter. After opening this on Christmas Day I read it from cover to cover and it took a good few days to devour it. This is one of the most entertaining Christmas tie-in books I have read, and I highly recommend it.
One thing: don't look at the title, see the word "pop", and give it to the kids. Bad idea...
It's stuffed with things to read (and even do, I can't wait to try and knit my own otter) so will keep you amused for hours.
