Sue Baker's view...

From the top BBC comedy show Pointless here are the 100 absolutely most pointless arguments to rot your brain. Quickly brushing aside the Why are we here question and that old favourite, Does God exist - yes or no -they get to the hardcore stuff and the debate over ballet or darts which is the more pointless and what element of a cooked breakfast could you leave out. Pointless to continue, pointless to point out that this is ideal Christmas gift potential too!

Synopsis

The 100 Most Pointless Arguments in the World by Alexander Armstrong, Richard Osman

From the presenters of the hit BBC One television series Pointless and authors of The 100 Most Pointless Things in the World comes a hilarious collection of answers to some of life's biggest questions. We've all had them, those pointless arguments that are seemingly impossible to solve. We've been round in circles trying to work out what came first, the chicken or the egg? Don't get us started on the debate of what we are all here for? And you're bound to have had sleepless nights pondering which ingredient you simply can't do without in a full English Breakfast - sausage or bacon. Well worry no more, here to help you solve some of life's biggest - and most pointless - conundrums, Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman attempt to answer the trickiest of teasers that we all face. So, does God exist? and what is the most pointless sport - ballet or darts? With a witty and intelligent collection of stand-up pieces, quizzes, cryptic brainteasers and pointless facts and questions, Alexander Armstrong and his pointless friend Richard Osman will put the world to rights and finally answer the 100 Most Pointless Arguments in the World...Ever.

Sarah Millican
