You'll encounter cars called after casseroles, kangaroos with purses and eclipses that fail to show up. Then get your togs on for a comedy at the Odeon, a marathon in the arena and lobster thermidor at your local tavern. Covering over 90 topics from Architecture to the Zoo, there's something for everyone including a whole host of anecdotes and quirky trivia along the way. This book is a must have accessory for pub quiz enthusiasts, crossword solvers and verbal journalists everywhere.
