Overview


From the author of the Eddie Dickens trilogy, a hilarious compendium of some of the most impressive mistakes in history
 
When the Pope visited Spain, an American company decided to cash in on the event by printing special T-shirts for sale there—except that instead of reading: "I saw the Pope" (El Papa) they read "I saw the Potato" (La Papa)! This is the sort of amazing error to be found in this splendid romp through the most impressive mistakes, blunders, faux pas, misunderstandings, misinterpretations, universal-truths-that-are-not-true-at-all, and howlers ever, all from the magnificently witty pen of Philip Ardagh.
