Editorial Reviews

Review

"Devilishly creative....Sir John Hargrave's exploits have given 'balls' a new meaning." -- Alan Abel (legendary prankster)

"Easily the funniest thing I've read in the last six to eight minutes." -- Drew Curtis, FARK.com (updated every six to eight minutes)

"John Hargrave has taken pranking to the next level....It's safe to say that I have become a blubbering fanboy." -- Maddox, author of The Alphabet of Manliness

"The CIA and FBI should get a hold of Hargrave, not to arrest him but to have him run things." -- Jonathan Ames, author of Wake Up, Sir!

"The ulitmate prankster." -- Ze Frank, creator of zefrank.com

From the Back Cover

MAKING A MONKEY OUT OF "THE MAN"

* How does Bill Gates respond when you try to kiss him on the nipple?
* What are the consequences of sending in your tax return, filled out entirely in roman numerals?
* What happens when you wake up e-mail spammers with 4:00 a.m. phone calls?

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.

I been reading Sir John's pranks for quite some time on his web site. I've laughed so hard one day when reading this at work, the guy in the next cubicle from me had to ask what I was laughing at!

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!

If you enjoy being seriously amused, this is a book for you. Look no further, for this book will quench your thirst for laughter while making fun of those corporations we all to hate, such as Starbucks and Walmart. While some of the material is taken from Sir John Hargrave's Web site, it's still hilarious even if you've seen it before. It's chock full of penises, celebrities, and even some tender moments. What more could you want in a book? For 9.99, it's an excellent deal. I laughed about two billion times while reading it. I effing love this book.

This book was absolutely hilarious. Whether your a frequent visitor to his equally funny website [...] or a newcomer on the pranking scene, this is a definite read. Each page provides a good laugh and it just gets better as you turn the pages. One of the best books I've read in a loooong time. Kudos to you Sir John Hargrave (even if Britain won't recognize your royalty). Everyone should grab a copy of this book and enjoy. Highly Recommended.

John Hargrave is one of the most creative pranksters out there. The audacity of some of these stunts blows my mind.

The victims of these pranks are all "the man" - he never picks on little guys, so the comedy here isn't that mean-spirited in spite of being pranks. A very funny book.

I bought this book off Amazon years ago but I just recently started reviewing my purchases. I love this so much. It has some of the great content from the ZUG.com website (which has since shut down) John Hargrave is a hilarious person and even though his website isn't around anymore you can still read some of his antics on here.

This book was so funny I couldn't put it down! I couldn't wait to see who would be pranked next or how the current prank would turn out. Read this book if you like breathtaking laughter complete with tears running down your face! Sir Hargrave is brilliant, devious, hilarious, and proves himself to be the master of pranks!

So far, i'm only around two thirds through the book and it is incredibly funny. If you enjoy the type of content on zug.com, and the unique writing style of Sir John Hargrave, I encourage you to buy this book.
