Grumpy Old Men by David Quantick
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Old men have been grumbling since the dawn of time...Now this book will chart their top gripes, from too many soap operas on TV to tattoos and pointless speed restrictions. Written by David Quantick, script writer on "Harry Hill's TV Burp" and Radio 4's "Loose Ends" and the "News Quiz". Grumpy old men were a hitherto silent majority...But they are no longer suffering in silence, with this compilation of gripes and grumbles, illustrated with blood-boiling images such as derailed trains and traffic wardens throughout, allowing the grumpy old man in us all to truly vent his spleen. Men have been grumbling since the dawn of time. Who shouts at the newspaper most, who argues with the council most often, who complains about headaches and football referees and speed restrictions and too many soap operas on television? This book will chart the top grumbles and gripes of the grey army. Topics to include: Make over shows; Manufactured Pop Stars; Manners (or lack of them); America; The French; Middle-aged people who dress too young; Middle aged people who dress too old; Middle-aged people; Facial Hair; Footballers with too much money; Politicians.
