(Previously published under the title 'In the Bath').
This is the ridiculous story of the eccentric upper-crust comedian and ‘jolly good egg’ Mr Tim FitzHigham’s epic attempts to row a copper Thomas Crapper bath across the English Channel. The authorities (especially those of the French) tried to stop him. Ultimately, they forced him to change the design, but he was doing it for the Comic Relief charity, and the more obstructive these mere ‘functionaries’ were, the more he was determined. We at Crapper & Co. were proud to sponsor him in this grand but idiotic endeavour. He was nearly killed during the first attempt (confounded by spiteful Eurocrats and one Hell of a storm) but the following year he succeeded.
Next, he navigated his ungainly and heavy craft around the coast of Kent and up the Thames to a hero’s welcome at Tower Bridge. In all, he rowed over 200 miles.

“Tim FitzHigham is unhinged. He is completely without hinges”.
