I just finished reading An Idiot Abroad by Karl Pilkington. It’s an accompaniment to the television series of the same name. It basically charts Karl’s reaction to the travelling to the New Seven Wonders of the World.


Here’s what to expect from the book:


“They say you can tell the quality of a doctor’s by the magazine selection. The place on Harley Street had loads. They had every magazine you could wish for and some that you wouldn’t. One of which was Boyz, a gay magazine. I was the only one in the waiting room so thought I would have a flick through it to see what gay like to read about. There wasn’t much reading to be done, as it was just picture after picture of half-naked men (mainly the lower half) dressed as mechanics, farmers and plumbers with their tackle out. I’ve never understood what gay blokes get from looking at these pictures, as they have knobs of their own to look at. Other than the pictures there was the odd bit of text that was a pun on the knob and bollocks. The main one I remember was Suckcocko. The puzzle was exactly the same as normal Sudoku, just with the knob twist to its name.”  


Apparently Sky1 is planning to make a second series entitled An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List. I can’t wait.

An Idiot Abroad
