About the Book

Hear about the guy whose nickname was 'Heid Furst'? His real name was R. Slater Hear about the stupit skindiver? He didny have a scuba. Glaswegians have always enjoyed a good laugh, and the home-grown variety best of all. This new and expanded edition of Michael Munro's best-selling book is a hilarious compendium of Glasgow humour. In addition to classics that never fail to amuse, it also features new jokes and stories, showing that the famous Glasgow tongue is as sharp and inventive as it has always been.
