Wobbly Bits is the essential guide to polite conversation. Covering
everything from the politically incorrect to the seriously taboo, this
humorous book offers over 3,000 ways to avoid speaking your mind!
Keep this book as your secret weapon (that 'distinguished,
cosmetically different person of size' your friend keeps mentioning might just not be your ideal date!), and you'll never be caught out again!
Subjects covered include crime, sins, sex, the body and its parts,
clothing and nakedness, bodily functions and secretions, illness and injury, old age and death, work, poverty, government and politics,
warfare and race.
