"Eats, Shites & Leaves." By A. Parody

A friend of mine recently let me borrow one of her books. We had a small text of that book in one of our English Board Exam Units and I was intrigued by it. Sure enough after skimming through a few pages I asked her if I could borrow and she said that I could. The book's front page reads:


Eats, Shites & Leaves.
Crap English & How To Use It.

By:
A. Parody

The book revolves around how English has been mutilated, decimated, subjected to insane levels of colloquialisms and so on and so forth. It's actually a very good read and it made some interesting observations about English and it's regularly-used incorrect usage.

Worth the read if you have that kind of time and that kind of humour. Will post extracts from that book later on and will leave to the readers to decipher it for themselves.

Funny book. I enjoyed the part where you have to switch the initial letters of the nouns around which totally changes the meaning of the statement.
