Never Hit A Jellyfish With A Spade
How to Survive Life's Smaller ChallengesBook - 2005
How should an atheist respond to a sneeze? In an argument, how do you kick ass when you dont have a leg to stand on? After years of exploring the small pockets in lifes backpack in his celebrated weekend GuardianHow to... column, Guy Browning has become the authority on such matters. The runaway #1 British Bestseller Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spadeoffers intelligent, practical advice on the level you need it, the trivial level: o How to evaluate a bottle of wine (if the alcohol content is less than 15 percent, send it straight back) o How to get what you want at the barbers (no multipart instructions, please) o How to stay warm in bed (when your partner has cold feet and steals the covers) o How to be a fashionista (when your twenty-year-old wardrobe is suddenly back in vogue) o How to pretend to laugh at a friends joke (the closest most men get to faking orgasm) o How to fix a computer (If restarting it doesnt work, turn it off and go back to a pre- industrial lifestyle.) Covering cooking and eating, sleeping and waking, men and women, love and marriage, religion and politics, hedges and neighbors, Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spadedelivers the truth about the things that really matter. With a package as fun as its contents, its the ideal gift for anyone who wants to live life with a sense of humor.
