Description

Ever wondered whether Bob Holness really did play the saxophone solo on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street? Or whether a swan can break a man's arm? Or whether there's a lavatory in every Alfred Hitchcock film?! f so, you've probably spent far too much time down the pub, conversing with a mate on the wrong end of four pints of lager. We've all heard them- wild claims, spurious rumours and barely believable 'pub facts'. Don't pretend you've never wondered whether champagne corks really kill more people per year than spiders. Or pondered the possibility that there is only one cash machine in the whole of Albania? f this sort of thing keeps you awake at night, then this book has come to the rescue. Bears Can't Run Downhill... debunks and explains 201 common claims and popular misconceptions. It s the ideal stocking-filler for the quiz fanatic, the trivia buff, the show-off down the pub or the wife or girlfriend who wants a way to a) get the upper hand and b) put a stop to this nonsense once and for all. So here is the definitive tome all you will never need (until the sequel at least) - of well-known facts both true and apocryphal.

Robert Anwood lives in London, where his hobbies include going to the pub and arguing. Writing under the questionable pseudonym of Siegfried Baboon, he also runs the Truck Driver's Gear Change Hall of Shame (www.gearchange.org), a website that musically documents the world's most unnecessary key changes.
