9780007263936: The New Uxbridge English Dictionary

With The Uxbridge English Dictionary the stars of BBC Radio 4's I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue had the nation in stitches. But times move on, words change and their meanings with them. Comedy's most outrageous dictionary is back with a hilarious new collection of definitions for all those English words that don't mean anything like they should.

If you have ever pondered the meaning of Platypus (to give your cat pigtails), Flemish (rather like snot) or Celtic (a prison for fleas), then this is the book for you.

With nearly 600 new definitions from radio’s best loved comedy show, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, The New Uxbridge English Dictionary pushes the boundaries of the English language to new side-splitting limits.

A must for any fan of British comedy.

About the Author:

I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is Radio 4's best loved comedy show and regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Barry Cryer are regularly given silly things to do by Humphrey Lyttelton, the doyen of quiz-show hosts. Whether the teams are singing the words of one song to the tune of another, making up serial rhymes or entering the mythic maze of Mornington Crescent, they have now become the National Theatre of fun. Jon Naismith has been the producer of the show since 1991. For more information about I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue visit www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/clue.
