    This is one of the funniest books I ve read in a long time I first saw Joe Lycett on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and have found him hilarious ever since so when I saw he had a book, I just had to order it in at the library.I think that Joe Lycett s sense of humour is perfect for this style of book and his voice comes through really strongly in his writing Not only did he include photographs in some chapters but almost every page included an illustration done by Joe himself I thoroughly en This is one of the funniest books I ve read in a long time I first saw Joe Lycett on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and have found him hilarious ever since so when I saw he had a book, I just had to order it in at the library.I think that Joe Lycett s sense of humour is perfect for this style of book and his voice comes through really strongly in his writing Not only did he include photographs in some chapters but almost every page included an illustration done by Joe himself I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have dealt with many of the situations that Joe discusses so I could relate to some of his frustrations.Overall, I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you have a dark or silly sense of humour I can t wait to see or readof Joe Lycett s work

  5. Hayden Hayden says:

    I ve rated Parsnips, Buttered 5 stars because I m genuinely scared that if I rate it anything less, Joe Lycett will make my life a living hell Also, it s absolutely hilarious But I m still scared

  6. Sam (she_who_reads_) Sam (she_who_reads_) says:

    Absolutely hilarious I highly recommend the audiobook

  7. alex alex says:

    2.5A fun audiobook to listen to well narrated However, the content was clearly recycled from live shows, tv appearances, etc.Fun background noise to fall asleep to though

    I ve seen Joe Lycett lots of times on the TV and have recently seen him live at a comedy night Whilst out shopping with my husband, we saw his DVD which we decided to buy as we had really enjoyed watching him live My husband then asks me whether I knew he had a book out also Well, this was news to me, which is really strange as a I love my books and b I work in a library You would have thought I would have seen this book on my travels, but I hadn t So off to the bookshop I went, and after I ve seen Joe Lycett lots of times on the TV and have recently seen him live at a comedy night Whilst out shopping with my husband, we saw his DVD which we decided to buy as we had really enjoyed watching him live My husband then asks me whether I knew he had a book out also Well, this was news to me, which is really strange as a I love my books and b I work in a library You would have thought I would have seen this book on my travels, but I hadn t So off to the bookshop I went, and after flicking through this book decided that I just had to read it.Now, I haven t finished reading it yet, but I know it s going to be a 5 star review just from reading the first few pages Joe has a penchant for complaining or winding people up isn t that the same thing via emails, tweets, texts and letters Many of these complaints or wind ups have been heard already in his numerous TV appearances, but in the book they are beefed up somewhat with an extended version of each story The result is a hilarious collection of anecdotes, emails and pictures from Joe to various people and companies These include local councils, neighbours, Starbucks and, of course, Donald Trump Obviously this book should not be taken seriously in any way, shape or form It is a cheeky, light heartened and downright funny book which should definitely not be read in public places unless you want many disapproving looks of you laughing out loud Oh.and I have to admit that Joe Lycett has now become my secret guilty pleasure Five Stars

  10. Bon Tom Bon Tom says:

    This book is manual for how to be professional troll It s elementary, high school and academy of trolling all in one It s also first time, now in my ripe age, I really dig English humor And now I get it what it s about It s about cinicism of course, mixed with passive aggression and teenage libido When you somehow manage to incorporate all three, you re master of English humor and probably screenwriting one of the legendary English TV series Or books like this one.
