Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bookshop, comes bestselling author Richard Wilson's triumphant follow up to Can't Be Arsed and Don't Even Think About It!, How Not to Talk Like an Arse is Mr Wilson's hilarious, and topical, self righteous stab at the modern day vernacular, taking aim at the invention of ridiculous, nonsensical words that not only are just plain crap but also make those who dare speak them sound like complete twits. Richard waxes lyrical on awful words such as 'Ciao', 'Hurting', 'Fashionista' and 'Staycation'. He also lets loose on how those words were created and how they escaped and survived in the wild instead of being killed at a young age. Written in Richard's utterly fantastic ranting style, this sharp-shooting of the ridiculousness of the modern english language - and the morons who use it - is a must-have for everyone this Christmas.
Richard Wilson is head of comedy for Hat Trick Productions and executive producer of Have I Got News For You. He has also previously worked on Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Room 101. His first book for Portico, Can't Be Arsed: 101 Things Not To Do Before You Die (9781906032371) was published in 2008.
