"There s nothing much left to feel good about these days if you re British, but one of the few things where we all agree that we're still a world leader is our defining sense of humour. Thematically covering every subject imaginable, from God to dogs, this collection will be the seminal gathering of our national wit and a picture of who we are as a nation - a monument to our monumental silliness.
