About this title


A British Comedy Award-winning writer waxes lyrical on such awful parts of the modern-day vernacular as "ciao," "hurting," "fashionista," and "staycation" Taking a hard look at the English language and the mess that it has become, this is a hilarious, and topical, self righteous stab at the invention of ridiculous, nonsensical words that not only are just plain crap but also make those who dare speak them sound like complete twits. The author lets loose on how those words were created and how they escaped and survived in the wild instead of being killed at a young age. Written in an utterly fantastic ranting style, this sharp shooting of the ridiculousness of the modern English language—and the morons who use it—is a must-have for word-lovers and grammar sticklers.

Richard Wilson is head of comedy for Hat Trick Productions (producers of Father Ted, Have I Got News For You, and Room 101). He is the author of Can't Be Arsed: 101 Things Not To Do Before You Die and Don't Even Think About It!
