Presuming you are reasonably robust and not easily offended, this book is quite simply the single funniest thing on the planet. It is breathtakingly rude, and gleefully honest. I have read this book from cover to cover, and was quickly banned from reading it in bed because I kept waking my partner up crying with laughter. It is absolutely life-affirming, and tells you more about the human condition than a whole shelf of classics. Do yourself a favour and buy this immediately! It's worth the price for the definition of 'wangst' alone...

If Oxford and Penguin are to be believed the English Language is devoid of vulgarity and lewdness. The Profanisaurus decisively disproves this by showing us how the English Language is well suited for making light of what would be rather dull activities such as defecating and copulating.
The cornerstone of Englishness is our sense of humour, and at the heart of this is 'toilet humour' - a fine institution indeed. Therefore we need to be in touch with a vast compendium such as this to remain truly English.
Aside from it's importance at a literary and national level, it's bloomin' funny and had me literally rolling on the floor crying with laughter.
Well worth the cash (even though mine was a present), buy one today and begin your research into the depths of vulgarity - Woo Hoo!

It has long been understood that humour, anxiety and filth occupy the same ancient parts of the brain and Das Krapital, the latest in the Viz series of profane thesauruses, taps into this subconscious area, producing alarm, guilt and hilarity in equal measure. A sort of half-brother to Jonathon Green's academic Dictionary of Slang, Das Krapital is a huge compendium of breathtaking filth that leaves you gasping with mirth. The book takes in much of what has already appeared in previous, smaller, Viz volumes, but is an essential book for all completists with a serious interest in the subject. Possibly the funniest book in the universe. An eye-watering masterpiece.

To be kept alongside the Shorter Oxford on my reference shelf. A marvellous (and disturbingly compendious) insight into the underside of the English language, and a book that even as an experienced user of obscenity I found myself boggling at the sheer creativity of some of the entries on occasion.
Don't read it in public. You will be looked at. It WILL cause you to laugh out loud, uproariously.
Filthy, disgusting, horrid, vile, obscene - yes.
Brilliant? Yes.
You know you need it.

Format: Hardcover
This book has an absolute plethora of inventive, funny (and frequently downright crude) terms for every biological and social function of humanity. Keeping to sexual and toilet-based humour in the most part, this book is extremely entertaining, not least in the continous cross-referencing (Cleveland Steamer...). The book succeeds in its intent, which no doubt will offend many, but there are no terms of racial or other abuse in this, nor are there derogatory terms applied more to one sex or the other. Occasionally overdone, the profanisaurus has delighted the office for many days since it arrived. And we do ensure that a word of the day gets used in meetings with our (US-based) management, who understand not one word!

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!

Not for the timid or easily offended, Roger Mellie's swearing dictionary, Roger's Profanisaurus is more than 200 pages of the most imaginative filth ever put on paper. Only the most po-faced could fail to laugh as they cross reference one disgusting phrase with another, none of which are suitable to be recorded here.
Read, enjoy and then put to good use in general conversation

Been a long time fan of the Profanisaurus and looking forward to a Kindle version for ages. All I'm worried about now is whether I can read this on the train to work without corroding my zip...
