I bought this the other week.
Definitely the best £1.50 i've spent in a while.
I recommend 'California tan' and 'You can't piss in the sink when it's full of teabags'.
First published in 1998 Roger’s Profanisaurus is a compendium of words and phrases inspired by the lexicon and philosophy of Viz comic’s foul-mouthed northern TV reporter Roger Mellie. Thirteen years later and "the man from the telly" can now spice up your descriptive and euphemistic powers through this handy app. Never before …
...I used to email round an entry from the Profanisaurus every Friday afternoon to select people in our firm (i.e. most of them), typically without self censorship. I dare say in other companies it would have resulted in instant dismissal. Most of the entries are indeed about masturbation, excretion and anal sex.
Was in the original profanisaurus (A 32-page A6 wrap around Viz circa 1997). "Wiping your dick on the curtains after sex at a posh birds house). After I bought this particular Viz (in WH Smith in Amsterdam), I proceeded to pee myself laughing all the way home on a one hour car ride where I was a back seat passenger.
It changed my life forever.
It's tucked away from the kids.. still remember getting it, around half a dozen of us all in WH Smiths, then proceded to take it in turns to shout out various entries... closely followed a few seconds later by laughter as we read the definitions, much to the bemusement of the rest of the office.
May just have to invest in this version now.....
The app may be reading the IMEI for authorisation/activation purposes, or it may be checking the phone state to avoid interfering with calls. It's unfortunate that the permission system isn't finer-grained so that apps could just ask for the exact permissions they need without getting others they don't thrown in for free, but as it currently stands having that particular permission doesn't mean the app *will* read your phone number, it only means that it *could*.
golden ticket 1. n. In Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", the magical token which allowed Charlie Bucket and his aged grandfather to visit Willy Wonka's fantastic confectionary works and thus
2. n. In a sexual relationship, permission to enter the wife's mysterious and exciting chocolate factory, though preferably without an elderly relative in tow.
