Philip Ardagh's book of absolutely useless lists for absolutely every day of the year

3.67 based on 26 ratings & 5 reviews on


Expect the unexpected in this ridiculously named, reassuringly chunky book, jam-packed full of eye-openingly absurd facts, lies, half-truths, thoughts, suggestions and musings with more footnotes than an orchestra of millipedes. Lists include: "Possessors of Notable Moustaches (Real or Otherwise)", "What MI5 Look For When Recruiting", "Basic Requirements for Being A Pirate Captain", "Animal Breakouts" and "10 Things I Think I Know About the Moon Without Looking Them Up (Or Up at It)". From the best-selling author of Awful End.
