A Toe-Curling Stack of the Best Bits from Issues 242-251 Mankind's constant need to do better - to climb higher, strive harder and travel further and faster - has been the unstoppable engine of progress that has driven our species on to ever greater achievements since we first crawled out of the primordial soup. Today we think nothing of travelling through space to the furthest edges of our solar system, building giant glass and steel skyscrapers that pierce the clouds, or communicating with people on the other side of the world in the blink of an eye using a smartphone no bigger than an iPod. We have harnessed the power of the wind, the sun and the atom to do our bidding, and our disposable razors increase their number of blades seemingly on a daily basis. Now a thrilling new chapter of Homo sapiens's inspirational story of progress opens with the release of Viz - The Jester's Shoes. For this year's Viz book is the BIGGEST EVER ANNUAL we have ever published! Ever! Viz - The Jester's Shoes is the 33rd annual from Britain's funniest magazine, and is a fantastic 25% bigger than its predecessors, it is a 200-page romp through the best of issues 242 to 251, including... Cartoons: The Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, Sid the Sexist, Mrs Brady, 8 Ace, Biffa Bacon and many more Entertaining and informative features: Life on Mars, Who's Who in Accident and Emergency, the Origins of Christmas and 20 Things you Never Knew about James Bond Thrilling Adventure stories: The Shark Hunters of Hammerhead Bay, Striker's Last Match, The Ghost of Greytowers and Time Travelling White Van Man Letterbocks, Top Tips and much, much more! Viz - The Jester's Shoes will surely go down in history - alongside the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer - as one of the most important milestones in over 6 million years of human evolution. And unlike the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer, it also makes an ideal gift for someone in that difficult �10 to �15 bracket.

As D:Ream famously sang in their 1994 chart-topper, "Things Can Only Get Bigger" ... and here, to prove how right they were is the 2019 Viz annual The Pieman's Wig. Hot on the heels of last year's biggest ever Viz annual, this year's is even biggester, with 220 pages of * Cartoons: Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, 8 Ace, Mrs Brady, Big Vern and many more * Articles: Sex Robots, the Joy of Flatpack Furniture, Stephen Hawkins' A Brief History of Time Travel and Who's Who in the 1970s School Playground. * Adventure stories: Pest Force Alaska, Tiny Cox the Pocket Physicist, Drill Sergeant Jumbo and The Binman that Fear Forgot. Plus more hilarious letters, Top Tips and spoof ads than you can shake a stick 10% bigger than last year's at. Now in its 33rd year, the Viz annual is as much a part of the festive season as the Queen's Speech*, overcooked sprouts, and ironic Christmas jumpers. And The Pieman's Wig is funnier than all of those things. Except for ironic Christmas jumpers, which really are very funny indeed. *Her majesty still alive at the time of going to press.

"The best book ... that I or anyone else will ever read. Truly magnificent," writes Matt Ridley in the Daily Telegraph. "A remarkable and powerful book," adds The Evening Standard's Dylan Evans. "Witty, lucid, and ultimately enthralling," says Robert McCrum in the Observer. Whilst according to Richard Dawkins, "Reading this book is one of the biggest favours I've ever done my brain." Sadly, these aren't reviews for Viz: The Dutch Oven - we found them on the back of a book by the distinguished cognitive scientist Steven Pinker. But we've got high hopes that the critics will praise this hard-backed collection of the best bits from issues 212~221 of Britain's toiletest magazine in an equally forthright fashion. Viz: The Dutch Oven's 160 pages of foul-mouthed cartoons, satirical features and spoof adverts make it the ideal gift for anyone you're not prepared to spend more than about 11 quid on.

Every Christmas for more than 25 years, the editors of Viz have cobbled together a hardback annual out of all the best bits from a year's worth of Britain's funniest magazine, stuck a colourful picture on the front and called it something vaguely off-colour. Over the years, these annuals have become as much part of the traditional British Christmas as the Queen's speech, turkey with all the trimmings and clostridium botulinum. This annual continues the tried and tested formula, bringing together the standout moments from the past 12 months.

The new profanisaurus celebrating Viz's 40th Anniversary. Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace, first published in 1869, is rightly lauded as one of the greatest achievements of world literature. Indeed no less an authority than John Galsworthy thought it "...the best novel that had ever been written." But does that monumental book contain, anywhere amongst its half-million words, exhaustively cross-referenced definitions for the thick end of 20,000 four-letter-words, obscene expressions and disgusting turns of phrase? Does it bollocks. This book, War and Piss, does. It brings together for the first time every single entry from Roger's Profanisaurus, the constantly-growing dictionary of swearing that is updated every five weeks in Viz Comic, Britain's third or fourth funniest magazine*. *Fifth if you include Practical Caravanning Completely revised and updated, War and Piss is an epic romp through the foulest sewers of the English language. Inside its pages, you will find * Over 200 witty things to say before breaking wind * Over 300 witty things to say after breaking wind * 150 words for that bit of skin between your clackerbag and your nipsy So if you need to describe something that you just did in the toilet, something you just did while your significant other nipped to the shops, or simply need something to shout after dropping a car battery on your foot, remember ... There's a word for that in War and Piss.

Masculinities and Moralities

Media Sport Stars considers how masculinity and male identity are represented through images of sport and sport stars. From the pre-radio era to today's specialist TV channels, newspaper supplements and websites, Whannel traces the growing cultural importance of sport and sportmen, showing how the very practices of sport are still bound up with the production of masculinities. Through a series of case studies of British and American sportsmen, Whannel traces the emergence of of the sporting 'hero' and 'star' , and considers the ways in which the lives of sport stars are narrated through the media. Focusing on figures like Muhammad Ali and David Beckham, whose fame has spread well beyond the world of sport, he shows how growing media coverage has helped produced a sporting system, and examines how modern celebrity addresses the issues of race and nation, performance and identity, morality and violence. From Babe Ruth to Mike Tyson, Media Sport Stars demonstrates that, in an era in which both morality and masculinity are percieved to be 'in crisis', sport holds a central place in contemporary culture, and sport stars become the focal point for discourses of masculinity and morality.
