Never again will you be short of a good tale at a dinner party. Amuse your friends, embarrass your maiden aunt and shock your stockbroker with stories of the inept, the improbable and the downright impossible. Read about the sanctuary for alcoholic donkeys; the would-be mugger who was rendered unconscious by an octogenarian armed with an onion (and who subsequently ate the evidence for lunch); the battle between a mother and son over the division of a lottery prize; the thief who stole skimpy ladies’ clothing from washing lines in the belief he was protecting them from baring too much flesh –   and many other true and bizarre stories.
