9780091898366: Another Weird Year: v. 3: Bizarre News Stories from Around the World

From the slightly worrying to the barely believable, Another Weird Year 3 is the book that no one who is tired of the drudgery of everyday front page news can afford to be without. The stories are once more grouped by theme (Sex, Animals, Lawyers etc.) and include: The policeman who took 36 years to make his first arrest; a man who turned arsonist to avoid sex with his wife; and the birds who felt that migrating south under their own steam was too much effort by half and decided to go by car instead. It's all true - but you may find you're pinching yourself to believe it.

About the Author:

Huw Davies has been a teacher, lexicographer, copywriter and reflexologist. When not writing, he competes in triathlons, plays the blues harmonica and follows the subject of cryptozoology - though not all at the same time. He is also the author of the forthcoming book Zendurance (Yellow Jersey), a study of the psychological aspects of endurance sports.

Review:

The latest instalment in the corporate adventures of Alex, the pinstriped cartoon character who appears in the pages of the 'Daily Mail'. It's been a tough year for the investment banker: his world is rocked by financial scandals and he faces a fight to keep his job. A collection of Cook's finest and funniest writings - many of which have never been published before. Christmas verse: under influence of gin, turkey and baby look confusingly alike. Why does the baby smell of stuffing? What has the family eaten for Christmas dinner? Hundreds of short stories picked up from the world's news wires during the last year.
