Quite funny, but seemed a bit obvious/forced in some places, I think you can tell it's one of his early ones! But made me a laugh a couple of times, firstly when reeling of his list of conceptions, and then when he goes to buy condoms but bumps into Father outside the shop! Also has a good bit where he refers to Kingsley Anus - I wonder when Lucky Jim was first published? Hmmm, 1954 - I just checked. Lucky Jim is definitely funnier!
