The Jerry story so far (fasten your seatbelts)...

Adopted and hand-reared by Nepalese monks, Jerry was raised on a rocky outcrop in the mountains of Tibet. By age 2 Jerry was wrestling and taming wild yak; by age 4 he had developed facial hair so virile that it made Ron Burgundy look like an awkward prepubescent teen waiting for a first kiss.

Jerry was all man, and boy did he know it!

With the ever-growing strength of a grizzly from his Shaolin martial arts training , Jerry thought it would be wise to travel and discover the world to expand his ever growing mind and finely tune his repertoire with the ladies. Fashioning runners out of goat intestines and tree vines, Jerry packed his Boogie Board and navigated his way over the Himalayas and through India to reach the Bay of Bengal... destination? Australia!

After a 6700km paddle session and a delicious new tan, Jerry washed up on the shores of sunny Perth in nothing but his goat-vine runners. Although a little weary, Jerry was still in such shape he could arm wrestle Crocodile Dundee with his opposit hand whilst writing poems to cute girls with his spare hand.

Jerry's quest had only just begun!

Money wasn't really an issue, but Jerry took his boogie board in at cash converters, receiving for the little yellow warrior. After 2 shots of Jaegermeister and a packet of disposable razors to tame his manly moustache, Jerry was down to a meagre.

The coins from admirers and spectators jingled in, funding Jerry's quest and expeditions from state to state, city to city and town to town to learn and know anything about everyone and everything!
With a body like Schwarzenegger formed from his endless encyclopedia, dictionary and thesaurus reading, Jerry had also developed relationship problem solving skills that made Dr. Phil appear amateurish and inferior!

Never content to just kick back & rest on his piles of 3-piece suits & Miranda Kerr lookalikes, Jerry wanted MORE MORE MORE!
Fashioning a time machine out of an avocado, a stopwatch, an ice pick, a snorkel and some tin foil, Jerry was ready to quench his thirst or knowledge...regardless of the year, decade or century, Jerry was now able to go back and find information for his brethren within moments.
Unchallenged by Australia, Jerry set off on another misson! Back stroking across the tasman faster than the 100m Olympic record holder Aaron Peirsol, Jerry sure build up a sweat! 2623 km’s later, and a killer face tan, Jerry hit the banks of Auckland ready to impress!
