From the playground to the boardroom, this lexicon of bad language makes, arguably, a more important contribution to the everyday vocabulary of the British Isles than the Oxford dictionary. Now, with over 10,000 entries, this edition features the latest in expletives, sexual obscenities and lavatorial euphemisms.

Every great man has a source of solace that they turn to in troubled times: Thoreau had Walden, Machiavelli had Livy's History Of Rome, Fonzie had Arnold's Drive-In, and I have Roger's Profanisaurus Rex.

Can one ever be said to have completed the Profanisaurus?

I have read the contributions over the years in the magazine and on the website - if you like VIZ, have the sense of humor of a six year old and enjoy annoying your partner by laughing in bed, then this deserves a place on your bedside table.

How could this not be a 5-star review? - It's 624 pages of Roger's Profanisaurus. Endless joy.

This is not one for those who are easily offended but if you like gutter humour this is the book for you. Set out like a 'proper' dictionary this is an easy reference book that can be picked up at any time.
