Following the sensational success of 1,227 QI Facts to Blow Your Socks Off, this title returns with a fresh stack of facts to astonish and enlighten: it is impossible to whistle in a spacesuit; Wagner always wore pink silk underwear; and, Rugby School's first official rugby kit in 1871 included a bow tie.
QI began life as a TV panel game show in 2003, hosted by Stephen Fry and featuring Alan Davies as the regular panellist (and scorer of outrageously low scores). Since then QI has become a worldwide phenomena, from bestselling books such as The Book of General Ignorance and the QI Annuals to live shows and games.
The QI Facts books are the quintessence of QI: four short, funny and surprising facts on each page, themed around everything from numbers and names to geography and history. With more facts than ever, this book is the perfect gift to make you laugh, think and tell your mates about.
