Chic Murray's Funnyosities by Robbie Grigor


Chic Murray's Funnyosities by Robbie Grigor

My boss is so narrow minded that when he has an idea, it comes out folded I use to write her love letters in the sand. But it was an incredible hassle trying to get sand into the pillar box 'Do you know the piano's resting on my foot?'. 'No, but hum it and I'll play it'. Chic Murray is a cult figure of alternative humour, a comedic pioneer ranked in the highest echelons of his art in the last century and admired around the world. Funnyosities features a huge number of Chic's funniest one-liners - some well known and others taken from material newly found by the great man's family. This collection is the perfect distillation of Chic's gloriously off-beat humour.
