9780140243598: Penguin Dictionary Of Modern Humorous Quotations 2nd Edition

From Miss Piggy to Woody Allen ('Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber at weekends'), from Dorothy Parker to Mae West ('To err is human, but it feels divine'), from Morecambe and Wise to Homer Simpson ('To alcohol! The cause of - and solution to - all of life's problems'), the last hundred years offer a rich banquet of humour. Even Belgium, golf and inflation have inspired witty remarks. Here is the definitive collection, organised by theme and offering more laughs per page than any other book. 'Wittily indispensable' - Chris Patten, "Guardian".
