Tossary of Terms by Modern Toss is the first in an illustrated dictionary series. Produced by cartoonists Jon Link & Mick Bunnage, this book features new words such as: Scumcestor, Prioritit, Newmonia, Cock-bonnet, Screen-margarine and Attenborough's Trench. The fast changing modern scene chucks up stuff faster than we can nail it down and label it. The ear grease on a smart phone screen, wearing a hat that makes you look like even more of a tit, the DNA rich stew in the bogs hand dryer trough, paying extra money to sit in a plane before the rest of the passengers. This invaluable tool for navigating the 21st century shitscape is printed on paper, rendering it impervious to cyber attack.

Modern Toss: The scurrilous cult comic Modern Toss is the work of writers, cartoonists, and animators Jon Link and Mick Bunnage. Their outrageously observant humour pokes fun at the ridiculous and the mundane with global appeal, summing up perfectly what it is to be a Modern Tosser. Their Channel 4 animation Business Mouse picked up a Royal Television Society Award in 2012, and in 2013 they set a world record for the longest cartoon with the word `fuck' in it, The Fuckyeux Tapestry. In early 2014 Modern Toss staged a unique UK exhibition, The Cistern Chapel, displaying artwork in gallery toilets, along with two live drawing events in London and Coventry. In their tenth anniversary year (2014), A Decade in the Shithouse was published - a 560p hardback anthology - after being successfully funded via Kickstarter alongside an extensive social media campaign and nationwide media coverage. In October 2014 Modern Toss held a major exhibition at The Forge Gallery in Shoreditch, London to celebrate their tenth anniversary, generating extensive press and media coverage. In early 2015 the BBC commissioned Modern Toss to produce The Lady and the Fly - an emotionally charged, lavish six-minute animation with the epic sweep of a classic romantic melodrama voiced by Mackenzie Crook and Paul Kaye - for the BBC's Funny Valentines series, released globally on the BBC iPlayer on Valentine's Day. This was followed by an experimental sound project to promote the BBC Proms, Orchestral Disturbance No 3 in E Major, which took an existing orchestral performance and replaced the instrument sounds with door bells and explosions. Later in 2015, an animated talking heads BBC iPlayer project, How I Survived University, was released to coincide with Freshers Week and was received with much critical acclaim. In 2016 they released their ninth fan-funded comic, along with two massively popular adult colouring books, subverting the trend with images of mindless violence and brainless boredom.
