As Thick as Thieves: Foolish Felons & Loopy Lawsby Richard O. Smith
Synopses & Reviews
This tongue-in-cheek miscellany of the most bizarre offenses committed in Britain, the peculiar punishments that have been meted out here through the ages, and a variety of badly bungled crimes, is shocking, absurd, and amusing in equal measure. Also featuring a plethora of acts that are still considered arrestable offences today, due to local laws that have never been repealed, this quirky volume takes a witty look at comical criminality through history up until the present day. An ideal gift book that will make you laugh out loud.
