Don’t know what knuckle glitter is? Or the tinker’s curse? A yardbrush, widower’s tears, or Birkenhead confetti?
We can actually define the last one – it’s gravel – but if you want to know what the others are, you’ll have to get hold of a copy of Viz’s Profanisaurus, as we can’t really print them.
And the famous comic tome of rude definitions has now been launched in app form for Android and iOS, despite Apple’s usual frowning on anything which is crude in sexual terms.
Dennis Publishing is responsible for the Viz Profanisaurus Das Krapital app, which contains over 12,000 hilarious definitions for your smartphone (we heap praise not lightly on the comic genius of this work, which has been one of our favourite humour titles for many years now).
The app lets you browse by different topics – such as anatomy or popular celebs (a “David Peckham”) – and is also integrated with social network support for easy reposting on Twitter and Facebook.
The iTunes disclaimer just about says it all regarding the app: “Frequent/Intense Profanity or Crude Humour, Frequent/Intense Mature/Suggestive Themes, Frequent/Intense Sexual Content or Nudity, Frequent/Intense Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References.”
Russell Blackman, Publishing Director at Dennis Publishing, commented: “The all new Profanisaurus app has been completely rebuilt, with a brand new design and tons of new content from the best selling Das Krapital book.”
“The entries are crossed-linked so that next time your mate complains about a magician’s hankie, you’ll know what he’s on about.”
It’ll cost you £1.49 for the app, which is also planned to be released on Symbian in the near future.
