A Guardian Best Stocking-Filler Book 2012.
King of the stocking filler books this Christmas... Essentially it's the best most fun chunks of the internet that you're thrilled to see when you're hungover.
Delightful... as an 1864 edition of the Bible suggested ''Rejoice and be exceedingly clad''.
Picked as one of the Guardian Books of the Year. 'You could put a gentle reminder in your card that "gift" has been used as a verb since the 16th century, and gift a book about language'.
Hard to suppress the snorts of laughter when reading this jolly collection of spelling mistakes, sub-editing disasters and misprints.
Hilarious! Don't read it through in one sitting, tempting as it might be to see what's over the page. You do reach a stage where it's difficult for onlookers to establish if you're convulsed with laughter or in need of medical assistance.
'Roundly entertaining... the pedant's stocking filler for 2012'.
