Legendary Kiwi ratbags and hard-bitten bright sparks infest all the stories in this genuinely funny book...extraordinary practical jokes which were really and truly perpetrated. Just an instance. Terry Sheehan made himself the King of Devonport, establishing border controls, raking in money for good causes and amusing thousands of people. He himself is a Grade A Larrikin from the worlds of advertising, PR, rugby and yachting. The tricks and jokes he describes in horrid detail expose a scandalous period in recent New Zealand history when people actually enjoyed themselves and fell about laughing.
