Afterliff, its long-awaited sequel, corrects this disgraceful oversight by recycling the names found on signposts.This brilliant successor to Douglas Adams' and John Lloyd's 1983 classic The Meaning of Liff features over 900 essential new definitions, including:Anglesey n.Hypothetical object at which a lazy eye is looking.Badlesmeare n.One who dishonestly ticks the 'I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions' box.Caterham n.An overwhelming desire to use the Pope's hat as an oven glove.Clavering ptcpl v.Pretending to text when alone and feeling vulnerable in public.Eworthy adj.Of a person: worth emailing but not worth phoning or meeting.Kanumbra n.The sense that someone is standing behind you.Ljubljana interj.What people say to the dentist on the way out.Loughborough n.The false gusto with which children eat vegetables in adverts.Sorrento n.The thing that goes round and round as a YouTube video loads.Uralla n.A towel used as a bathmat. In 1983, John Lloyd and Douglas Adams authored The Meaning of Liff, a bestselling humour classic which went on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies. John Lloyd's other books include 1,411 QI Facts To Knock You Sideways and The Book of General Ignorance.
