1979 was a year of momentous events. In Britain, it began with the so-called Winter of Discontent, as rubbish piled high in the streets and the dead went unburied. Later, guerillas stormed the US Embassy in Tehran, Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street, and Sid Vicious died of a heroin overdose while on trial for stabbing his girlfriend to death. Elsewhere, murderous dictator Saddam Hussein rose to power in Iraq, America's Three Mile Island nuclear plant went into meltdown, and there was an anthrax epidemic in Russia following an accident at a biological weapons plant. But it's all swings and roundabouts, because 1979 also saw the first issue of Viz Comic going on sale. And now, with a rousing brass fanfare to celebrate its 40th year as the country's most flatulent magazine, Viz is puffing out its cheeks to release its latest annual - The Trumpeter's Lips. Within the 226 pages of this lavishly produced hardback you will find the very best bits from issues 262-271, including * Cartoons: The Fat Slags, Sid the Sexist, Mrs Brady Old Lady, Roger Mellie, Eight Ace, Buster Gonad, Big Vern and many, many more * Informative features: Let's Go Dogging!, Secrets of the White House Shite House, How Did Henry VIII Mow His Lawn?, Who's Who at a Car Boot Sale, and A Day in the Life of a Model Railway Enthusiast * Edge-of-your-seat adventures: In Search of the Giant Squid of Sumatra, The Crown Jewels Mystery, Wally Walton's Emergency Scorpion Squad and Wall to Wall Carpet Warehouse, Ballet Nurse on a Pony, Pip of the Peloton, and Bad Bob the Randy Wonder Dog * More articles, spoof ads, Readers' Letters and Top Tips than you could shake a really big stick at Just like our rubbish and dead were piled up in the streets four decades ago, Viz - The Trumpeter's Lips will be piled up in shops and internet retailers this Christmas, guaranteeing a "Winter of This Content" (as specified above) for everyone.
Does it bollocks. This book, War and Piss, does.

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.
