What is your problem if you are ringled to a flazzard? When is Chewidden Day? How might you get out of the langle? Why is going for a dacker a quite innocent activity in one place, but something rather more lewd elsewhere?

If you’ve ever had trouble telling your etymology from your entomology, this is the book for you.
