Just a total blast. I read the rave reviews before I bought it a bit sceptically and thought, 'so, impress me.' And, boy, did he! I laughed out loud like a drain so many times and so noisily my roommate thought I was losing it. Then I leant him this book and pretty soon he was hysterical too. So many great moments it's difficult to pick out a favourite. So here's a few: A groom being buggered by lesbian strippers on his Stag night; a disastrous visit to a female prostitute in London's red light district; a surreal discussion about the cultural significance of foreskins with Monty Python worshipping US Marines in Tijuana; an exclusive interview with Oscar Wilde in which he 'goes in'; and Simpson's own 'George Michael' moment with a cute cop from the Beverly Hills PD.
The funniest, sharpest book I've read in years. I defy you not to laugh.

Is there something they put in the water over there in England? How do those Brits manage to be so funny? This Simpson guy has to be one of the funniest Brits to hit these shores. My boyfriend thought I'd lost it when I was reading this - he had to go into the other room. Really inspired stuff - some of it was a bit more stretching intellectually than I bargained for, but I sort of liked that too.
