Next was break me to harness. First, a stiff heavy collar on my neck. Then there was a bridle with great side-pieces called blinkers against my eyes. Then there was a small saddle strap that went under my tail: that was the crapper. I hated it, it stopped me having a crap. I never felt more like kicking so I kicked him in the goolies and they swelled up like melons. He had to put the harness on me while balancing his balls with one hand and could only move very slowly. In time I got used to everything (and he got used to swollen balls) and I could do my work as well as my mother. I used to wash up after dinner. Yes, I was a very good horse.

Ryan on
Your childhood favourite as told by Britain's favourite cynic, Spike Milligan. You'll laugh, hoot and cry out loud as the Irish wordwit destroys the innocence and tenderness of the original classic with a wry gin and a flowing pen. Or be horrified as the book you know and love gets torn down soppy metaphor by soppy metaphor. Five out of five, Spike Milligans comic genius remains.
