Books Info:

Isle of Wight to Get Ceefax free pdf John O'Farrell presents over two hundred almost-true news stories from Britain's leading satirical site, including charity launches, guide dogs for the late, and teenagers on work experience banned from air traffic control. Remember where you were when you heard that the fifty-year rule was abolished fifty years ago? Or the news that dolphins stop smiling the moment our backs are turned? It's all in this handy book-shaped collection which brings together Britain's most exciting new comedy writers and the talents behind such shows as "Have I Got News For You", "Spitting Image" and "Lead Balloon".From Sainsbury's Launch New Gullible Range to Ryanair to Charge for Emotional Baggage, this hilarious journey through the year represents the very best in topical comedy from the website that the "New York Times" declared was Britain's answer to "The Onion". 'The funniest book of the year from Britain's funniest website,' says TV's Robert Mugabe. 'If this book doesn't win the Booker Prize I will personally nut Melvyn Bragg or whichever ponce is in charge this year,' says former soccer hard man Vinnie Jones.
