Railing against the world? Fed up with everything? In need of a hefty dose of cynical humour? Then Grumpy Old Git Jokes is the book for you.
Straight from the mouths of the grumpiest gits our proud nation has to offer, this bumper collection contains hundreds of jokes on favourite grumpy subjects such as politics, religion, education and technology. It muses on the grump’s least favourite people (including judges, bankers and lawyers – ‘What is the ideal weight of a lawyer? About three pounds, including the urn’), and the perennial subjects of ageing (‘Old age is always fifteen years older than what I am’) and health (‘All you’ve got is hypochondria.’ ‘Can you give me anything for it?’).
This deliciously cynical, delightfully dour, mirthfully miserable book will help anyone indulge their inner grumpy old git.
