Mr McGreevy's "Absolute Howlers" is a side-splitting collection of the most earnest and mangled attempts at the English language made by generations of schoolchildren. From the historical - 'Rome was overthrown by invasions of the Huns, Visigoths and Osteopaths' - to the religious - 'Solomon had 300 wives and 700 cucumbers'; the R-rated - 'As he walked through the room he heard the sound of heavy breeding' - to the unintentionally profound - 'Matrimony is a place where souls suffer for time on account of their sins' - under Mr McGreevy's tutelage nothing is safe, or sacred. Be they funny, irreverent or just plain silly, Mr McGreevy's "Absolute Howlers" are guaranteed to have you weeping with laughter. But be warned: don't read too many in one sitting, you may just do yourself a permanent injury.
