    • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ itโ€™s a farming town, and apparently a committee of locals decided it was a good marketing gimmick to get people driving through to stop. It references a Kiwi comedian of the 1970s-80s who had a gumboot-wearing alter ego.

      Yeah, it still sounds a bit lame, but it seems to work.

    • Isnโ€™t it! I found out that it was a marketing stunt to make people travelling through the town stop. It was riffing off a Kiwi comedian of the 1970s who had a hit song about gumboots. It wouldnโ€™t have been my choice, but there you go!
