England's Manzine is a cheeky, well-written ode to the joys of shopping for gravy boats, antique linen shops, and the age-old domestic debate over what's better, drying or washing the dishes after dinner—basically a masculine appreciation of the fairer, finer things in life. There's a one-page story dedicated to a brand of biscuits called "Dorset Knob," which seems less like an essay on crumpets and more like a 500-word chance to luxuriate in a cesspool of jokes. "Fancy a bit of Dorset Knob tonight, darling?" A little research on British slang will definitely enhance the uhm, comedy here.
