Love the subtitle! A round-up of some of the best cynical humour around, along the lines of what’s the ideal weight of a lawyer? Answer, around 3 pounds including the urn. A candidate for a Father’s Day gift - for the older grumpier Dad perhaps, a man can have too many ties and socks, a cause for grumpiness in itself, a good dose of black humour may make the old man’s lips twitch – just a little...

Synopsis

Grumpy Old Git Jokes Because Life's Not All Fun, Fun, Fun by Ian Allen

Railing against the world? Fed up with everything? In need of a hefty dose of cynical humour? Then Grumpy Old Git Jokes is the book for you. Straight from the mouths of the grumpiest gits our proud nation has to offer, this bumper collection contains hundreds of jokes on favourite grumpy subjects such as politics, religion, education and technology. It muses on the grump's least favourite people (including judges, bankers and lawyers - 'What is the ideal weight of a lawyer? About three pounds, including the urn'), and the perennial subjects of ageing ('Old age is always fifteen years older than what I am') and health ('All you've got is hypochondria.' 'Can you give me anything for it?'). This deliciously cynical, delightfully dour, mirthfully miserable book will help anyone indulge their inner grumpy old git. Word count: 20,000

During that time Ian has worked on hundreds of books, a handful of which were even intended to be comical. Ian is qualified to degree-level in Data Processing, which is just hilarious. Ian is perhaps best known as being the compiler of The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes , also by Portico.
