But the fact that anyone and everyone can contribute means it's also full of a lot of dross Luckily, this book has done all the work finding the gems and collects the very best of internet funnies together in one place. Always funny, often shocking, Non PC World is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys forwarding silly pics (the beach wedding spoilt somewhat by the fat naked bloke in the background, the brilliantly named mobile kebab shop Jason Donervan) and daft stories (the greatest ever break-up letter, the ad placed in the classifieds looking for an assistant time traveller). And of course, no collection of internet humour would be complete without classic 'Chinglish' public notices and wrong answers from game shows (Q: 'what was Ghandi's first name?' A: 'Goosey?').
