Every Christmas for more than 25 years, the editors of Viz have cobbled together a hardback annual out of all the best bits from a year's worth of Britain's funniest magazine, stuck a colourful picture on the front and called it something vaguely off-colour. Over the years, these annuals have become as much part of the traditional British Christmas as the Queen's speech, turkey with all the trimmings and clostridium botulinum. This annual continues the tried and tested formula, bringing together the standout moments from the past 12 months.

From the playground to the boardroom, this lexicon of bad language makes, arguably, a more important contribution to the everyday vocabulary of the British Isles than the Oxford dictionary. Now, with over 10,000 entries, this edition features the latest in expletives, sexual obscenities and lavatorial euphemisms.

Fred Cahir tells the story about the magnitude of Aboriginal involvement on the Victorian goldfields in the middle of the nineteenth century. The first history of Aboriginal–white interaction on the Victorian goldfields, Black Gold offers new insights on one of the great epochs in Australian and world history—the gold story. In vivid detail it describes how Aboriginal people often figured significantly in the search for gold and documents the devastating social impact of gold mining on Victorian Aboriginal communities. It reveals the complexity of their involvement from passive presence, to active discovery, to shunning the goldfields. This detailed examination of Aboriginal people on the goldfields of Victoria provides striking evidence which demonstrates that Aboriginal people participated in gold mining and interacted with non-Aboriginal people in a range of hitherto neglected ways. Running through this book are themes of Aboriginal empowerment, identity, integration, resistance, social disruption and communication.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was Bollocks. And Roger Mellie looked upon the Word and saw that it was good. And he said, let there be more Words. And lo, readers of Viz did send in a multitude of words, four thousand of them, arranged in more-or-less alphabetical order. And Roger spake, saying, there, that's probably enough for a brand fucking new Roger's Profanisaurus.
Rogerâ€™s commercial breaks have become a regular feature of his Viz strip, with the hapless television presenterâ€™s attempts to supplement his income usually going awry. Now as well as Rogerâ€™s hilarious commercials we have his selection of the best of Viz ads â€“ from the Rear View Arse Mirror (â€˜at last itâ€™s possible to drive and ogle girlâ€™s arses in safetyâ€™) to John Smithâ€™s Breast Bitter Ltd (â€˜this Christmas give your husband exactly what he wantsâ€¦ an enormous tit full of beer!). There is also a selection of the best â€˜Franklin Mintâ€™ ads like the Ted West teddy bear (part of the Bears of Murder limited edition collectors series) and the Little Hitler Doll (â€˜The Mitford and Mosely Mint are proud to present a charming study of nascent evilâ€™). Outrageously funny, Roger Mellieâ€™s Break will appeal to the many devoted fans of Viz - and anyone with a scatalogical sense of humour!
