"Early in the afternoon, a gentleman, reported to be a professional man, gave it out that the balloon then present was not my largest and newest balloon but a small one," Coxwell would later write to the Times.

"This was a cruel libel," he added, but the rumour spread all the same. "This Coxwell," they muttered, darkly, "he's taking us for mugs."

In case anyone doesn't get the joke, Bolshevik and menshevik come from words that mean more and less, respectively. It's a parody of Soviet communism. Large beer is Bolshevik, small beer is menshevik, and the quip about all beer being tasty is playing on workers uniting. Nice play there.

In America or worldwide? I have heard stories about Australia having some deadly shark attacks.

And it makes sense if you think about it. More people use toasters daily than people who even go near sharks.
