A collection of possibly the funniest misuses of the English language by school children, Mr McGreevy's Absolute Howlers will have you weeping with laughter and reading snippets out aloud to your friends, your family, and possibly to complete strangers on the bus on your way home. Mr McGreevy's Absolute Howlers is a side-splitting collection of the most earnest and mangled attempts at the English language made by generations of school children.
A man with an obsession with (mis)communication, Norman McGreevy has painstakingly collected together the best of their very worst efforts. From the historical, Rome was overthrown by invasions of the Huns, Visigoths and Osteopaths to the religious, Solomon had 300 wives and 700 cucumbers the R-rated: As he walked through the room he heard the sound of heavy breeding and the unintentionally profound, Matrimony is a place where souls suffer for a time on account of their sins, under Mr McGreevy's tutelage nothing is safe, or sacred.
Funny, irreverent and at times just plain silly, Mr McGreevy's Absolute Howlers is guaranteed to have you weeping with laughter. But be warned, don't read too many in one sitting, you may just do yourself a permanent injury.
