The perfect pocket-size companion to proliferate your profanity vocabulary. A cornucopia of classic and contemporary curse words.

Keep your swearing as fresh as a f*cking daisy with The Little Book of Profanities.

There's nothing better than that perfect swear word. In a battle of wits, it can make all the difference. And, like all things in life, variety is the spice of swear words. Why call someone a d*ck, when a choad is so much more - satisfying.

Stuffed with 100 of the obscene, offensive and outrageous swear words known to construction workers all over the world, The Little Book of Profanities encourages you to flex and stretch your foul-mouthed muscles so when that awesome opportunity to use a big, hairy curse word arises you're not hoisted by your own petard.

In these uncertain and challenging times of political and social chaos, when all you want to do is shout obscenities at the world for being crap, The Little Book of Profanities is here to help you survive the day in style. Swearing - it's big, it's clever and anyone who thinks otherwise can f*ck off.

'The sort of twee person who thinks swearing is in any way a sign of a lack of education or a lack of verbal interest is just a f*cking lunatic.' - Stephen Fry on the joy of swearing, as seen on theguardian.com, 20 August 2007, by Sam Wollaston.

Fact: The word's etymology can be traced back to around 450AD when scite (dung), scitte (diarrhoea) and scitan (to defecate) were all thrown about. Sh*t evolved millennia later into schitte (excrement) and shiten (to defecate).

Example: 'Life is a crap carnival with sh*t prizes.' - Stephen King.
