QI is the smartest comedy show on British television and is a major hit in Australia too.

This book, 1,227 QI Facts to Blow Your Socks Off, will make you look at the universe in a completely new way.

Did you know that cows moo in regional accents, the entire Internet weighs less than a grain of sand, the dialling code from Britain to Russia is 007, Saddam's bunker was designed by the grandson of the woman who built Hitler's bunker and under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981 it is explicitly illegal in Britain to use a machine gun to kill a hedgehog?

These weird and wonderful facts are what you will find in this book and they will keep you entertained for hours.

The book is the sixth in the series based on QI.
