A liff is a familiar object or experience that English has no word for. 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.
