First published in 1879, this collection of ribald and unseemly verses reveals an altogether more voluptuous side to the outwardly prudish Victorians. Using language which has the power to shock even today, this anthology of gutter verse leaves nothing to the imagination, and yet treats its subject matter with gentle wit and comic skill. Strangely addictive....

There was a young man of Wood Green,
Who tried to fart God Save the Queen.
When he reached the soprano,
He shot his guano,
And his breeches weren't fit to be seen.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Iliyana | 12/20/2013

    " Beatiful sarcasm, I love Twain 's style and the way he explains his point of view about how awful the German language really is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Thomas Scholz | 12/14/2013

    " A wonderful polemic on written and spoken German. Fortunately most journalists and authors in our time avoid Twain 's harshest points of critique ;-) "

    " So far, very funny albeit mostly observational humour. "
