Anyway, picked up The Witches of Chiswick, by Robert Rankin:
"'Winsome Wendy Wainscott, Channel Twenty's wonderful weather woman, says it will be clear by Wednesday,' ventured Will's mum, a moon-faced loon with a vermillion hairpiece and hips that were a hymn to hamburger. 'I could call you in sick, Will, and you could apply yourself to doing a few odd jobs about the home.'
'No thanks,' said Will.
'But some of the jobs are really odd. They would appeal to you.'"
Some of his other book titles:
The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocolypse
The Toyminator (Note: Picture of creature, half stuffed bear, half cyborg teddie, on cover.)
Fandom of the Operator
Being jealous would only lessen the fun...
