      Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

        I have a few on the go:

        The Dice Man - George Cockroft - Hard Work
        The Black Swan - Harder Work.
        My Booky Wook - Russell Brand - More my level.

        The missus reads whatever those great literary scholars Richard and Judy recommend.

          Sounds like the missus has marginally better taste

            She must have - she's going out with me.

            It's quite funny in places actually. Not as funny as The Timewaster Letters, but then again they're a different league...

              I wouldn't read Brand on principle as I think he is a right twunt. I did laugh at the mtv bit he did the other day though.

                I picked up a mates copy of my booky wook and had to put it down after flicking through it. The bloke is a tw@t and to read about him throwing his hissy fits before his MTV days you'd think the guy was Tom Cruise or something.

                Brand is one man in dire need of a dose of euthanasia.

                On them! On them! They fail!

                  His dealing with Bob Geldoff in 2006 at an awards do was just lovely! Geldof had called him a c**t:

                  Really it's no surprise he's [Geldof] such an expert on famine he has after all been dining out on, "I Don't Like Mondays," for 30 years.

                    Oh bugger, do I have to dig it out and try again?

                      Haha! It's the odd gem like that which makes it all worthwhile. Comedy is too safe and boring these days.

                      I like the fact that everyone thinks he's a tw@t - he knows it too. It doesn't really matter - he's a funny tw@t.

                      People said the same about Ricky Gervais from his 11 O clock show days - then when he went mainstream everyone fell in love with him.
