Get on all fours in the foot well facing the door. Everyone’s first instinct is to put their hands or legs down first. That’s the worst thing you can do: you will break something. The pointy parts of your body hurt – elbows, knees, hips, ankles. Put your fists under your chin, and bring your elbows together. Keep your chin tucked in to your chest to protect your head. The best point of impact is the back of the shoulder and your back. If you dive out directly onto your shoulder you’ll break it.

Winner of the 26th annual Diagram Prize for the Oddest Book Title Of The Year – an unexpurgated guide for men to every poop-related dating eventuality. To wit:
Not an instruction manual as the title might imply, this is a practical guide to confronting every possible problem or eventuality one may encounter when wooing.

Meh, meh, meh, MEH!
