Monkey's armpit and other insults

Language Log and Languagehat, both language weblogs of the highest reputation and credentials, report a book just released: Uglier Than a Monkey’s Armpit: Untranslatable insults, put-downs and curses from around the world. It's co-written by Stephen Dodson (who has just come out as the compiler of Languagehat) and Dr Robert Vanderplank (director of the Oxford University Language Centre). Looks fun! - Ray
