2.0 out of 5 stars How to extract an advance from a publisher, 23 May 2008
This review is from: How to be a Complete Bastard (Paperback)
A comedy book advocating drink driving, sexist and violence, I'm surprised no one thought of it sooner. That Adrian Edmondson's "bastard" characters from `The Young Ones', `Bottom', `The Dangerous Brothers', `The Comic Strip' et al always came off ultimately being there own victim so making the cartoon violence funny. Here we have no moral outcome and a very unfortunate book.

I must admit to liking the send up of the 'Not the Nine O'clock News' books, suggesting they are just a cash-in rip off. I'm not sure how the irony got past the editor.

Got to say I agree with you, I didnt find this funny and at first suspected it was that I'd been influenced by political correctness since the eighties but talking to friends they figure it wasnt ever funny and tries too hard to shock. Its a shame, there was a video game for the ZX Spectrum + which was awesome based on this premise and it was much better.
