Are You a Miserable Old Git? (Hardback)Andrew John (author), Stephen Blake (author)
Hardback 176 Pages
Whether wielding the sly insult or offering direct contempt, pouring the coldest of water on the grandest of plans or spoiling the happiest of days, or else simply groaning and grumbling in the background in counterpoint to the cheerful bustle of lesser mortals' lives, the commentary of the grump adds wit and savour to everyday existence. From Bob Geldof to the late John Peel, W. C. Fields to Groucho Marx, Winston Churchill to Dorothy Parker, the world has always produced its share of grumpy, moody, grouchy, pessimistic, world-weary, cynical and curmudgeonly types (as well as some fantastic fictional figures). This marvellous menagerie of moaners will be sure to brighten your day, for the truth is - whether we're laughing with them or at them - miserable old gits are funny!
