Bonkers Britain

What Drives You Nuts about Modern Life

Will Jackson,

Bonkers Britain: What Drives You Nuts about Modern Life
 
 

Having a good old moan about little everyday frustrations is a quintessential part of being British, and when it comes to barmy bureaucracy we can really get our knickers in a twist! This book collects the most mind-boggling and side-splitting examples of potty political correctness, ridiculous red tape and well-intentioned (but ultimately wacky) warnings from across bonkers Britain today.

Discover the ‘infallible logic’ that inspired a toy manufacturer to point out to customers that its plastic broomstick doesn’t really fly, the ‘dutiful consideration’ that led to sex being described as ‘cooperative physical fitness’, and the ‘forward thinking’ that resulted in a sign advising against hogging the middle lane being displayed on a two-lane motorway. But be warned: this book may induce bouts of uncontrollable laughter and should only be used by those trained in lifting books and turning pages.
