The New Uxbridge English Dictionary, Hardback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


With The Uxbridge English Dictionary the stars of BBC Radio 4's I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue had the nation in stitches.

But times move on, words change and their meanings with them.

Comedy's most outrageous dictionary is back with a hilarious new collection of definitions for all those English words that don't mean anything like they should.

If you have ever pondered the meaning of Platypus (to give your cat pigtails), Flemish (rather like snot) or Celtic (a prison for fleas), then this is the book for you.

With nearly 600 new definitions from radio's best loved comedy show, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, The New Uxbridge English Dictionary pushes the boundaries of the English language to new side-splitting limits.

A must for any fan of British comedy.

It's quite funny but really it's the sort of book people give you for Christmas to be forgotten about two weeks later.
