Do you know why Big Elephants Are Useful To Indians For Unloading Logs? Because it's a BEAUTIFUL way to get a tricky spelling right. Have you ever lost an arguement? Or was it an argument? If you can just remember "I lost an 'e' in an argument", then you'll never get it wrong again. Would you be upset if someone said you were 'a sandwich short of a picnic'? Or could you be described as someone who 'fell asleep in a greenhouse'? If you want a little traditional wisdom or some cracking new insults, this book offers a treasure trove of curious, witty and downright obscure mnemonics and English idioms.
