9781845296322: Must Try Harder!: The Very Worst Howlers by Schoolchildren

This is a side-splitting collection of the most earnest and mangled attempts at the English language made by generations of schoolchildren. It includes, amongst hundreds of others, the following howlers: Coal is decayed vegetarians. Socrates died of an overdose of wedlock. Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak. The King wore a scarlet robe trimmed with vermin. In the middle of the 18th Century all the morons moved to Utah. The German Emperor's lower passage was blocked by the English. The French Revolution was caused by overcharging taxis. Nets are holes surrounded by pieces of string. In biology today we digested a frog. The seventh commandment is 'Thou shall not admit adultery'. Pompeii was destroyed by an overflow of saliva from the Vatican. A census taker is a man who goes from house to house increasing the population. Adolescence is the stage between puberty and adultery. Be they funny, irreverent or just plain silly, Mr McGreevy's absolute howlers are guaranteed to have you weeping with laughter.

Product Description:

Book by McGreevy, Norman

About the Author:

Norman McGreevy was brought up and educated in Glasgow and now lives quietly in Melbourne with his wife and a small menagerie. For the past ten years, Norman has worked with universities, corporations and government agencies, writing, designing and delivering information technology training and communication for groups of often bewildered executives. He now tries to combine his passion for information technology and (correct!) communication with his passion for relaxation and walking, so far with limited success.
