Is “shit” the most versatile word in the English language? Quite possibly!

From Philosophical Shit to Animal Shit, and Cultural Shit to Political Shit, this little book is the perfect gift for potty-humoured people.

We’ve been saying “shit” (meaning “trash”) since the sixteenth century – “The government is a load of shit!” – but the word itself has been around for thousands of years. Now it’s a fan favourite four-letter word, used when you stub your toe, eat something good, spot something gross on the carpet, and all that other shit.

With pages dedicated to some of the best uses of our favourite expletive, this book will make you laugh out loud, think about scientific shit, work, religion, and so on, and reflect on just how versatile a word “shit” really is.

Some of the shits this book gives:
– Doctors: Take two shits and call me in the morning
– Waiters: You want fries with that shit?
– Darwinism: Survival of the shittest
– Jediism: May the shit be with you

There’s enough shit for everyone!
