Synopsis: Following on from the best-selling titles Anguished English and More Anguished English, Richard Lederer's latest humorous collection comprises a wonderful concoction of fluffs, goofs, gaffes, botches and blunders, including new categories concerning the things kids say in churches ('Solomon had 300 wives and 500 porcupines'), a history of the United States according to students ('World War I made the people so sad that it brought on the Great Depression'), hilarious menu items that are lost in translation ('Our wines leave you nothing to hope for'), and the Hall of Fame section that highlights the all-time bloopers. Filled with Lederer's trademark intelligence, humour and down-to-earth advice, this newest instalment of the gifts of our oddball language is a book to cherish.
