Snooping around blogworld as is her wont, the Sock is led to believe that Anne Wareham (affectionately known in the hortiworld as Doris Bonkers) is about to give birth to a book called 'The Angry Gardener'. Some of you may remember Doris from her stint on C5's 'Best Garden in Britain' or whatever it was called. You know.. the one with the three judges format one of whom (guess who) was the narsty judge.
So 'The Angry Gardener'... whatever next? 'The Apoplectic with Rage Gardener'? The 'So Incandescent with Rage my Head Exploded Gardener'?
Anne lives in Wales which might explain everything. The Sock has been there and sympathises.
Update.. It has been bought to the Sock's attention that 'The Angry Gardener' is an anagram of
'Garden Hag Reentry' and very nearly an anagram of 'Danger Great Hyena'. Anyone got any more?
Further Update.. It turns out that in fact the book is to be called 'The Bad-tempered Gardener' which in the Sock's view is a mistake. Not only does it not sound as catchy but it is too long to be bothered anagramming.
