Nigel Rees, leading commentator on the English language, has ranged far and wide to collect and comment upon 2,467 examples of euphemistic phrases - those expressions that so inventively display the art of mincing words. From the politically correct to the highly incorrect, A Man about a Dog goes in ruthless pursuit of the coy, the prudish, the squeamish, the obfuscatory, and the blatant reshaping of the truth. So whether you "have to see a man about a dog" or just need to "powder your nose," this entertaining reference will show you how not to say what you mean.
