Many wise words are spoken in jest but many more stupid ones are said in earnest, as this book demonstrates. How about this comment on a football match from Cristiano Ronaldo, for instance: 'The reason we lost is because we didn't win.' Or Ian Wright's, 'It took a lot of bottle for Tony Adams to admit he was an alcoholic.' Or Dave Woods' remark, 'The silence is getting louder.' It makes you think, doesn't it? There are many others: 'Abstinence is the thin end of the pledge.' 'A comedian who repeats old gags is a clear case of the tale dogging the wag.' 'It is kisstomary to cuss the bride.' 'Cannabalise legalis.' A cavalcade of equally regrettable utterances form the basis of this melange of spoonerisms and spectacular ignorance. Aubrey Malone has written a bumber of nooks.
