About this title:


This exuberant collection of songs, limericks, spoonerisms and puns of every sort is a delight for everyone who enjoys risque jokes or double entendres. Written by the highly acclaimed Richard Lederer, The Cunning Linguist deals exclusively with sexual humour that depends on wordplay. Avoiding the school of joke telling that depends on insulting targeted groups, the author takes his cue from Shakespeare and his bawdy humour to create over two thousand jokes and quickies that play with the verbal vivacity of English vocabulary. What's the difference between a new job and a new bride? After six months, the new job still sucks. Recommended reading: The Tiger's Revenge by Claude Balls; The author has even included his newly devised sexicography, The Dirty Dicktionary, with new definitions such as: pathetic fallacy - a small pecker.

About the Author: Richard Lederer is the best-selling author of Anguished English. He specialises in the English language and has had several other books in this area published, including Get Thee to a Punnery, The Play of Words and The Miracle of Language.
