Overview

A lot of pomp and circumstance has gone on since Julius Caesar first came, saw, and conquered, but this doughty little book heroically manages to capture the true essence of this green and pleasant land in just 100 episodes (plus a few extras for good luck). This is the story of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales as it has never been told before: a red-white-and-blue compilation of surreal news reports, spoof correspondence, and quirky cartoons. From the hooded druids of Stonehenge to the hoodied troublemakers of the Bluewater Shopping Center, the nation's towering achievements and darkest hours are entertainingly recalled.
