9780091908706: Another Weird Year: v. 4: Bizarre News Stories from Around the World

In time-honoured fashion, Another Weird Year 4 brings you the stories that no lover of bizarre, inexplicable and downright hilarious news items can afford to miss, all handily grouped by theme (Love and Marriage, Law and Order, Animals etc). Read about: the blind man banned from saying 'phlegm'; the woman who bored a burglar to sleep with her family snaps; the woman who seduces men in her sleep; the man who thought he was a cat and got stuck up a tree; another man who got out of his car and took a shower...in a car wash...with his car left outside; the shepherd that had to drive his drunk sheep home; and not forgetting the pigs given a sauna and massage before being taken for slaughter - proof again from Another Weird Year that there is humanity in even the weirdest human behaviour. All the stories are true - you couldn't make them up!

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 Zendurance (Yellow Jersey), a study of the psychological aspects of endurance sports, published in 2005.

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.
