Are you Dave Gorman? by Dave Gorman

Just finished this – got bought it for my birthday. Dunno if you saw the TV series that resulted from
this book, but the basic premise is that Dave Gorman (comedian) and his mate Danny Wallace (journalist) try
and prove a bet that there are ‘loads’ of other Dave Gormans (Gormen?) in the world.

While the story
itself is funny what actually comes across and makes this book funnier than the TV is the relationship
between Danny and Dave, and exactly what their quest/obsession does to their relationship and their
relationships with their friends/loved ones.

First book in a while that’s actually made me laugh
out loud – highly recommended!

Death of the commando

Good news… Industry insiders say sales of ladies’ thongs now match those of traditional knickers

Unfortunately you then see this paragraph…

“Separate research suggests one in three women would wear no underwear beneath an evening dress five years ago, but with the rise in the popularity of thongs this had fallen to one in nine.”

So, more thongs = less commandoes. Not sure I’m so happy after all…
