8 out of 10 cats parking ticket
Parsnips, Buttered: How to baffle, bamboozle and boycott your way through modern life by Joe LycettThis review can be found on Amaranthine Reads.
Joe Lycett is an English stand-up comedian, noted for his appearances on television comedy panel shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats and his devious ways of getting out of parking fines, which is the basis for this book.
I have oft imagined myself and Joe wandering over the horizon in the glow of a sunset and post-coital haze, but the very notion of having to sort out which Jo/e theyre asking for would cause too much havoc in our already havoc-laden lives, due to his irrevocable penchant for accruing parking fines and my grand desire to lure Ben Swift away from the road with Tayto Crisps. It would, alas, never work.
Parsnips, Buttered isnt a biography nor a self-help book, though it is closest to the latter than anything else (except, maybe, The Very Hungry Caterpillar). What someone has bequeathed you with is an extremely witty book from a man who spends far too much time behind a keyboard. Joe is the maestro of wasting the time of local councils-but does it with such style that it is inevitable he will a.) get away with it all and b.) seriously make you question your own life-decisions and feel the need to start requesting for personal data through the Subject Access Request.
Parsnips, Buttered will give you tips on many areas of modern-day living, including how to deal with Facebook spammers and friends alike, and, simply, how to piss off anyone you dont like including people who send you hate mail or just stand in a clique group and give you death stares.
The book itself is written relatively well, though there are times at the beginning where weak jokes and self-effacing sentences run amok, though once you get in to the meat and two veg of the piece we are welcomed by warm wit and a man who definitely knows how to cause mischief. There are one or two moments when a slight layer of hypocrisy breaks through slightly (killing people with kindness is all very well, but one should be able to appreciate that some people want to live in the wild) though all is forgiven as hypocrisy can sometimes be a good thing and it felt more accidental through Joe being young and not knowing everything about himself rather than obvious cynicism.
It is utterly ludicrous at times, but throws up some very important issues like homophobia and so-called islamic state, and Joe has no qualms in calling spades spades and idiots utter idiots. It is a joy and will probably change your life in some way, shape or form, if only to make you aware that you can in fact contest parking fines. Joe Lycett is a wonderful comic with a good life ahead and I welcome more books like this from him.
