Summary

Modern life: Advertorials, obscenely cheerful breakfast TV hosts, call centres, smiling charity collectors. Performance reviews, people who say I'm not racist, but Sushi bars and the Taliban. Alexander Downer. Water cooler moments. Yellow stickers. Fridge magnets. Grumpy middle-aged man Mark Dapin can complain - and does - about almost everything. In Fridge Magnets are Bastards, he's tried to contain his rants about the things that annoy him to a list of 100 or so - in alphabetical order. Why? Just to be irritating. A book for anyone who's ever gnashed their teeth over contemporary stupidity.
