About the Book
We all swear, whether we admit it or not, but do you know the fascinating origins of the curses and maledictions that we spout out of spite and malice, or simply to entertain? Here is practically every dirty word and foul phrase you've ever heard in English, along with a great many that you may not have heard. From Chaucer and Shakespeare to Lenny Bruce and Mel Brooks, Come Again? offers you the frank and the filthy, the obtuse and the obscene, and the stories behind them.
Jeremy Ellis offers readers some things old, some things new, some things borrowed, and plenty of things blue. Chapters include Private Parts on anatomical descriptions, Caught in the Act on the act of sex, and even Black and Blue on African American phrases. This is absof*ckinglutely one of the dirtiest and most entertaining books on language ever published.
