Essential toilet book, dip in for a minute or three and have a giggle. ( )

Using placenames to describe things not in the dictionary

I’m surprised that I didn’t love Douglas Adams’ THE DEEPER MEANING OF LIFF: A Dictionary of Things That There Aren’t Any Words For Yet. I certainly adored his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.

Ely (n.) The first, tiniest inkling that something, somewhere, has gone terribly wrong.

It seems that this book was really aimed at adolescent boys who find bodily functions amusing. There were many definitions that I laughed at but it was disheartening to find that there were outdated references and all the silly juvenile witticisms.

Wembly (n.) The hideous moment of confirmation that the disaster presaged in the ely (q.v.) has actually struck.

What Adams did, along with John Lloyd, was to take actual place names from around the world and give them phony definitions of ostensibly amusing quality.

Godalming (n.) Wonderful rush of relief on discovering that the ely (q.v.) and the wembly (q.v.) were in fact false alarms.

It took me years to find a copy of this book and I’m glad I did track it down, I’m just a little bit disappointed. There were plenty of giggles but this wouldn’t be a book I’d choose to take with me to a deserted island. It’s not a keeper. ( )
