The Bumper Book For The Loo

The Bumper Book For The Loo

Facts and figures, stats and stories – an unputdownable treat of trivia


When Mitchell Symons wrote his extraordinary bestsellers This Book, That Book and The Other Book - all neatly combined in one sensational volume, The Ultimate Loo Book - he was judged by many to be the King of Trivia. Now, inThe Bumper Book for the Loo, this supremo of weird and wonderful, astonishing and inexplicable facts, figures, stats and stories returns with a super selection of trivialistic treats - each one more remarkable and, yes, even more trivial than anything he's compiled before.

For example, did you know that...

·The first alarm clock could only ring at 4 a.m...
·There was once an internet rumour that Belgium doesn't exist...
·In 1830, King Louis XIX ruled France for just 15 minutes...
·All mammals have jaws but only humans have chins...
·Peru has more pyramids than Egypt...

Packed to the rafters with all manner of useful and useless information, lists of the biggest, the smallest, the best and the worst, The Bumper Book for the Loo is a hilarious compendium of endless delights - and a hugely entertaining, unputdownable feat of nonsense!
