Action-packed and stocked with laughs, Prank the Monkey follows the quest of one crusader of justice as he dishes out revenge on the world's biggest--and most deserving--targets. Superprankster John Hargrave goes after Wal-Mart, pompous celebrities, and the entire U.S. Senate in this outrageously funny book, exposing them for the chimps they really are--and shows you how to do the same.
This premiere volume features dozens of all-new pranks, more ambitious than any attempted to date, plus updated versions of the stunts that made ZUG famous.
Sir John Hargrave (see the "Royal Pain in the Ass" prank), award-winning Internet humorist, has been pranking the system for years on his comedy website, ZUG.com.

Soon as I got the book, I knew it was going to be just as good as his site. Rereading some of the classic pranks was just as fun as it was the first time I read it. And all the new pranks will certainly keep be entertained for quite some time. I definitely hope a sequel is in store, because I can't get enough of Sir John's pranks!
