Terrible Estate Agent Photos

Terrible Estate Agent Photos

Author: Andy Donaldson Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/09/2014

FOR SALE: From the creator of the viral blog sensation TerribleRealEstateAgentPhotos.com, a book of the most baffling property photographs ever taken. With over 100 previously unpublished photos, early viewing is STRONGLY recommended. The mantra 'location, location, location' often concerns buying a house, but some estate agents would do well to apply it to their photography. Should one, for instance, locate the camera in front of a fossilised garden chair? An overflowing ash tray? An elderly relative hustling out of shot? Has thought been spared for the location of that dirty underwear? Those psychedelic curtains? Out of touch with realty, less Rankin and more plain rank, some of the worst offenders should perhaps consider relocating to another industry. Luckily for us, they haven't yet. The mystifying property photographs gathered here are an endless source of confusion, confusion, confusion, frustration, frustration, frustration and, perversely, satisfaction, satisfaction, satisfaction. : 'One of the funniest things on the web' - Guardian 'Hilarious' - Tom Standage, Economist 'Brilliant' - Graham Linehan 'Astonishing' - Daily Mail 'Hilarious' - Time Out 'Marvellous' - Independent 'Amazing' - Der Spiegel

Middle Class Problems Problems but Not Real Actual Problems, Just Middle Class Ones

Middle Class Problems Problems but Not Real Actual Problems, Just Middle Class Ones

Author: Benjamin Lee Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/12/2014

This is a collection of real-life inconveniences faced by the iPhone-losing, polenta-burning, Eurostar-missing middle classes. While 870 million people in the world suffer from starvation, it's worth sparing a thought for the beleaguered and misunderstood middle classes who face similarly harrowing issues every day. 'My horse just ate my favourite boots' 'Feel like I've forgotten how to ski' 'Put too much balsamic vinegar on my salad and now I'm dying' From overcooking the quinoa to downloading the wrong book to the wrong kindle, things can get pretty rough in the recently renovated homes of our harangued elite. Fortunately, they can now turn to Twitter in their distress, finding a haven and a natural outlet in @MiddleClassProb, where Benjamin Lee has been collecting our most hilarious cris de coeur since 2010.

Mrs. Brown's A to Y of Everything is Brendan O'Carroll's hilarious follow-up to the bestselling Mrs. Brown's Family Handbook. If there's one Mammy in the world who knows what's what, it's Mrs. Brown. Here, Agnes, star of the incredibly popular TV show Mrs. Brown's Boys, and the much anticipated Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie, follows up her bestselling Mrs. Brown's Family Handbook with an A to Y (who really needs 'Z's anyway?) of modern life. In it, Agnes explores everything from pandas to piles, from biscuits to The Big Bang and from handwriting to hairdryers. Peppered with her inimitable humour and full of hilarious photos, the A to Y of Everything is to your Christmas stocking what sausages are to a toad-in-the-hole.

Edward Estlin Cummings knew a thing or two (take a look at our Poetry Section if you don’t believe us!) and we have to agree with him. Humour is at the heart of human life and you’ll find it in fine form in this section. From favourite TV shows to quirky memoirs; hilarious novels to witty verse; books to dip into, books to devour. We know that humour is subjective and so we’ve spread the net pretty wide as we trawled the comedy oceans for the funniest fish. Un’shellfish’ly, we’ve compiled monthly lists of eclectic recommendations so that you can easily find whatever tickles your fins. There are books here to give as gifts, to savour on your own, or to enjoy with others. Books of laugh out-loud jokes and anecdotes to make you smile on the train, plane, bus or any other public place. After all, laughter is infectious. Spread it around.
