You Must Be Joking
by Douglas Gallagher
If laughter is the best medicine here is just what the doctor ordered. Treatment consists of dipping into this display of quirks, vagaries and misuse of the English language found in numerous advertisements and famous quotes. You Must Be Joking is an essential buy for all readers; one that will not only ensure entertainment, but will be revisited time and time again. A daily dose is recommended.
