April fool!

The plastic iceberg in Sydney Harbour on the 1st April 1978! Gerry offers some Bundy OP rum to ward off the cold.
That's Gary Johnston in the shorts. He's now the owner of Jaycar Electronics.

The plastic iceberg was the most successful April Fools' joke in the history of the world! It was conceived by Gerry in
the Stoned Crow bar in Crows Nest on Tuesday 24 January 1978, paid for by Dick Smith and put together
by Gerry, Hans Tholstrup and Hans' mate Olly.

After the fun was over, wet and cold Gerry warms up with a Cold Gold KB, beer, which
he'd arranged to have especially canned for the Dick Smith Jumbo flights over Antarctica.
