Warming. This book features manyof the less savoury aspects of human behaviour. But you have been warned. We believe that it is far better we should face reality, however terrible, than stick our heads, sand-like, into an ostrich. Thank you. (From the into)

Dr Fegg's aim was not only to cover his expenses while on the run, but also to educate pre-adolescent children in the essentials of life, as well as proving that he had almost nothing to do with the Bournemouth Axe Murders.
Some people got the wrong idea. In its original 1974 version, it was called THE NASTY BOOK FOR BOYS AND GIRLS. But after many complaints about it being an inappropriate birthday present, and several inquests, and only two Old Bailey trials, the title was changed to the present name.
In the 31 years since its publication, I have tried to live my life according to Feggist principles, barely washing from week to week, and gradually whittling away the stock of relatives. The mandatory life sentences have been a bit of bummer, but you can't have everything. I wish I'd been able to put into practice Dr Fegg's advice about crossing the Andes by frog.
It was, of course, Dr Fegg who ended all chances of a Rutles reunion, and since the disappearance of Ron Nasty, Dr Fegg has had to lie very low indeed. Some say he is in South America. Others say the Himalayas. His only link now to the outside world is Mike Palin, who was only half-responsible for the Skegness Impaling. It is alleged that Mike goes to see him every now and then, under the guise of a new series for the BBC, in order to channel some of the proceeds from the enormously successful (in an in-between-Holy-Grail-and-Tomkinson sort of way) encyclopaedia.
I somehow doubt it. But I enjoyed this book tremendously.
It arrived a day or so later, and has a real flavour of Monty Python about it - it's mad, whacky, funny and gross in equal measure, and is a really good book to dip in and out of.
It appears to be written for a younger audience but I think almost anybody with a slightly quirky sense of humour will enjoy it.
Probably not to everyone's taste and definitely childish and adolescent. So what - lots of gems an crammed full of inventive and refreshingly un-PC nuggets of joy. I may never have had the chance to pick the noses of dead Nazi war criminals, but if I had I would certainly have eaten it. Michael Hezeltine beware!

Generally very funny - typical Python humour. As with the original shows, some parts better than others.Published on 20 May 2015 by Mr John D Jones
