Fancy a quick read?
Mrs Abbott: Do you have a guide to Torquay?
Basil: A guide... um... oh, dear, I think we're out of them again.
Mr Johnson: (to Mrs Abbott) Do you want to look at this one? I got it in the town.
Mrs Abbott: Oh, thanks... What's on in Torquay.
Mr Johnson: Yes, it's one of the world's shortest books. (they laugh)
Mr Johnson: One of the world's shortest books... like "The Wit of Margaret Thatcher" or "Great English Lovers".
