Forget scratching and hair-pulling, once a girl gets past the age of eight she knows that her deadliest weapon is her tongue. For centuries history has really been His story - publicly, at least, women have been spoken for by men and lived in a world controlled by men. But in truth women have always had plenty to say about this and "Women's Wicked Wit" is a selection of their sharpest comments on life, on men and on each other. Two-thousand witticisms from all ages and cultures are arranged according to subject, (or victim) and nothing and no-one escapes. This selection by novelist, publisher and anthologist Michelle Lovric proves that when it comes to chopping someone down to size with a cutting remark, the female of the species is indeed more deadly than the male.
