The title of this novelty item is from a saying of King Edward VII: “I don’t care what the people do, as long as they don’t do it in the streets and frighten the horses.” Macdonald was frequently compared to humourist Lennie Lower, although Macdonald’s humour is more sophisticated. He also loved the comic-scope of ‘the little bloke who gets pushed around’. Therefore, we see our hero being browbeaten by his bank manager, getting lost in the Paris underground, in Darlo Police Station and musing on such diverse topics as literature, travelling, eating and drinking. With an introduction by ‘Nino Culotta’. Australiana humour. Illustrated by Clarrie King. Very Australian humour.
